A great year for EliteFbm!

by Umberto - Monday, December 22, 2014

A great year for EliteFbm!

Ended a full of satisfaction  year for our school that has seen more than 180 people in the classes! Thanks to all those who have trusted us. Many courses, and not always dedicated exclusively to chocolate but also to the pastry, cake design, biscuits and leavened. For 2015 we confirm everything but we want to improve and introducing courses for "gluten-free" given the growing interest that the subject raises and giving space to pastry Armando Palmieri who has achieved great success over the last week with a pilot class which is confirmed and fully booked for the first days of the new year. Within a few days we will post also the dates of the new course that we will do in the School of Las Vegas for chocolate "from beans"!
