Who is Sandi Planinšek?

It is not said in vain that pâtisserie is an art. Sandi Planinšek is a chef by education and a passionate pastry chef by heart. Favorite desserts of this young and aspiring pastry chef are those in the shape of fruit, and he is currently creating his own style of desserts at a renowned restaurant.

Excellent online education structure. I like that Sandi starts by explaining the basic ingredients and tools, before he gets down to making the basic dessert ingredients.

I had a hard time deciding whether to choose to buy the basics or to learn how to decorate cakes. That's why I decided to make a compromise and took both educations. I don't regret a single second of the set I learned. Quality content, congratulations.

What I like most is the explanation of the ingredients and their properties. It does matter what kind of eggs we use and it does matter if the ingredients are warmed to room temperature or not. I'm excited about the whole project, the BAM Pastry Academy, it's a really great way to learn the basics of pastry.

Since I have been baking at home for some time, I was a little skeptical about buying this course. After completing the course, I can say that I gained a deeper insight into the very creation of basic biscuits and creams, which I realized at the end that I had never prepared before or at least not in this way. Also, I always mixed the masses with whisks and did not mix them in, as Sandi keeps emphasizing in the course. Now I know how to mix properly, I'm also well versed in theory, and a whole bunch of new recipes have made their way into my notebook.

I miss the demonstration of how to assemble the cake layer by layer. Otherwise, it’s a lot of fun, but stressful at the same time. Ideal for Corona times when we are all at home ...

I gained a lot of useful information. It might be a good idea to also show how to assemble the cake, for true beginners. Otherwise, very happy with the purchased contents.

“True master pâtissiers :)”

Rating was given by Cheryl L., 11.03.2021

All compliments to Sandi, but as a beginner, I’d have liked some more information on preparation ... The recipes could feature the method in more detail.

“You gain lots of new skills and knowledge!”

Rating was given by Claire D., 08.03.2021

I gained a lot of new theoretical knowledge and learned a lot of secrets that help make the dessert tastier. The explanation was occasionally a bit vague, but that doesn’t affect the end result and you still obtain a lot of quality knowledge.

“The BAM patisserie challenges are great!”

“Terrific online education!”

Rating was given by Susan C., 25.02.2021

I think that everyone who loves baking home desserts should download the contents and start with the online courses on basic pastry making techniques. I have to admit that up until now I didn't know you need to add some fat (almond flour, etc.) to the sponge batter to give it a better texture. I recommend it to everyone!
