reated in 1971 by Gaston Lenôtre, l’Ecole Lenôtre is the first gastronomy school in France for both basic and advanced training, and enjoys an international renown.
Welcoming new ideas whilst upholding the best of traditions, the school is a perfect balance of past, present and future. To hand down knowledge, to develop French culinary heritage, to have respect for produce, passion for one’s work, rigor, desire and commitment – these are the values of l’Ecole Lenôtre.
