Lenôtre Culinary Arts School
Since its founding 50 years ago, our school has embodied, every day, the passion for transmission that drove its founder, Gaston Lenôtre.
Today, the school is located just a few minutes from the Rungis wholesale market for agricultural produce, a strategic location to meet an ambition: train high-level professionals in cooking, pastry-making, chocolate and baking, but also men and women who anchor their talents in their era and who make indulgence a key point in their profession. To meet this challenge, excellence is at the heart of our requirements and generosity is the basis of our teaching methods.
