Our values and activities         

"We owe this success in space and time to our teams' mastery of know-how. That's why we attach so much importance to passing on knowledge!"

Our values


Lenôtre s'engage pour une expérience exceptionnelle et une qualité privilégiée, offrant une expérience unique à ses clients.


Chez Lenôtre, compétences et savoir-faire s'allient dans une aventure centrée sur l'humain, guidée par des valeurs essentielles.


Lenôtre encourage une évolution  constante, questionnant succès et échecs, alliant ambition, humilité, et nourrissant l'optimisme pour innover.


"Apprendre en faisant". Tel était la devise de Gaston Lenôtre, guidant la transmission du savoir-faire culinaire, du geste au goût, dans le respect, l'audace et le partage.

Our history


Founders of a house of excellence and forerunners of a gastronomic revolution, Gaston and Colette Lenôtre shared their passion to make their brand a true icon of French gastronomy.

The story begins in 1957. At 44 rue d'Auteuil, the Lenôtre couple inaugurated their first Parisian boutique, close to the Bois de Boulogne and the road leading to their native Normandy. Gaston Lenôtre was already the initiator of modern patisserie.
