DUCASSE Education,
the School of Cooking Well

Created in 1999, DUCASSE Education was born out of Alain Ducasse's will to share his passion and culinary savoir-faire with future generations of chefs and other professionals in the hotel-restaurant business. This desire spread to include the general public in 2009 with the creation of the Alain Ducasse Cooking School, Paris.

The Best Possible Training Setting

Hosted by chefs and pastry chefs who possess enormous experience and a sense of pedagogy, our trainings accentuate technical skills practice, indispensable to a real mastery of the profession.

Limited class space (8 - 10 students) and modern installations and products help guarantee the quality and level of excellence of our trainings.

Our pedagogical approach, largely founded on practice, makes a big difference for our students' future careers in the restaurant- and pastry chef businesses.

Study Abroad

With campuses in France, Philippines and Brazil, DUCASSE Education offers training programs to professionals and fans of cooking and pastry-making all over the world.

According to their project, students can specialize in cuisine and restaurant management at the Centre de Formation Ducasse, or learn the craft of pastry-making at the ENSP d'Yssingeaux, near Clermont-Ferand, the school that trained the MOFs (Meilleur Ouvrier de France, prize awarded to the best craftsperson in France) and big names in patisserie like Cédric Grolet.

Classes Available for All Enthusiasts

Concurrently with initial cuisine and pastry making trainings, DUCASSE Education offers continuing education and conversion programs aimed at professionals wishing to deepen their culinary expertise or learn a new profession.

At the heart of the Alain Ducasse Cooking School, Paris, DUCASSE Education also offers classes open to the general public, allowing young and older enthusiasts to learn to cook, initiate themselves in basic techniques or discover oenology in fun and pedagogical workshops.
