Hello and Welcome to International School of Baking.
My name is Marda Stoliar, I am a professional baker who helps high-end bakeries improve their product lines, processes and profits, and I also provide 1-1 mentorship programs to help people become world-class bakers at my bakery school in Bend, Oregon.
We help established and start-up bakeries improve and maintain high quality baking products, troubleshoot and solve challenging problems related to their bakery tools and systems, team, and formulas, and ultimately improve their bakerie’s profitability.
We also help train teams and individuals who want to improve their baking skills and learn how to make world-class breads, cakes, and chocolates to name a few.
Learn more about working with us below and get in touch with us to schedule a 1-1 baking consultation.
"In a bakery the choice is made with your eyes, but the memory is made in the taste, texture and lingering flavors."
bThe Bread Doctor - 20 Days of baking with Marda Stoliar
"What a wonderful experience it has been to learn the art of baking from Marda Stoliar. Her knowledge and experience in European baking is extensive, and she graciously and willingly imparts that knowledge to her students. She takes a keen interest in anyone wanting to learn the art of beautiful breads and pastries. I have taken three classes at her school in Bend, Oregon, and she has traveled to teach on site at my bakery five times."- Ezdan Fluckiger, The Bread Doctor
"Beautiful products bring people in, the taste brings customers back."
How Working with Me Works…
I work with each student 1-1 to help them achieve the results they desire as bakers or in their bakeries. Our programs foundation is built on three core components including education, implementation and improvement.
Custom tailored education to meet your baking interests and needs.
Working with you side-by-side to improve your baking skills or bakery.
1-1 expert mentorship and guidance to continually become a better baker and bakery operator/owner.
