Please Help Save SFBI!

I recently took an 8-week professional bread baking course at the San Francisco Baking Institute where I learned a lot of invaluable things about the bread baking industry.  There's no school that I've ever been to that was so generous in sharing their knowledge about baking and that made me feel like I was part of a family.  This school is truly world class -- never have I seen such modern equipment being utilized for the students and never have I experienced a school that was super generous in providing the students high-quality ingredients, reading materials, and even food.

It saddens me to find out that the state of California is shutting down this institution while they are in the process of reviewing SFBI's license as a post-secondary institution -- a process that could take months -- which would in turn, impose a huge financial strain on SFBI that could even lead them to close their doors permanently.  I am urging you to help SFBI remain open by signing their petition through this link:

The link also provides a letter template that you could sign and send directly to the Bureau of Private Post-Secondary Education.  

Please help save SFBI!!


  1. Hi Janis,
    Welcome back!
    I went to that link to support, and found some good news instead! Congratulations to SFBI!
    I'm so envious of your bread baking course! So happy that you went all out for it! Congratulations for completing the course!
    Wish you a belated Merry Christmas!
    Happy New Year!

  2. I signed the petition, as many other people did, and fortunately our protests were successful. Yay!
