The Continuing Education Department at Kankakee Community College is offering a unique virtual tour featuring bakery items to sample at the stops along the way.

“Bakery Bus Tour in a Box” will be Saturday, March 6 from 10-11:30 a.m. In addition to a live discussion, photos and high-quality pre-filmed segments, participants will receive a number of treats ahead of time:

  • Half-pound box from Peter Sciortino's Bakery, from historic Brady Street in Milwaukee.
  • Mini Three King's Cake from female-owned La Flor de Trigo.
  • A dozen of National Bakery's famous pecan fingers.
  • Six Madeleines from Greige Patisserie.
  • Plus, Ultimate Confections hand-dipped chocolates.

“This is a fun event with ‘behind the scenes’ tours of bakeries where we’ll see how the magic happens,” said Deb Hoyer-Denson, KCC assistant director of continuing education programs. “Designated stops along the tour match up with treats that are mailed to all participants. The box has enough to share with a friend or a date. Everyone will get to enjoy a number of delectable tastes, sights and sounds during the tour.”

The cost is $79, and includes a box of pastries and chocolates large enough to share, and the educational seminar/virtual tour. Deadline to register is Feb. 22.
