Ecole Ducasse,
Master more than cooking

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 led to the creation of Ecole de cuisine Alain Ducasse in 2009 for amateurs. In 2019, the partnership with Sommet Education strengthens the ambition to become an international reference.

The philosophy of excellence

Hosted by chefs and pastry chefs who possess enormous experience and a sense of pedagogy, our trainings blend teaching and sharing of culinary techniques and expertise at the highest level, with a resolutely contemporary approach to gastronomy.

With the support of Sommet Education and driven by international ambitions while remaining true to its French heritage, Ducasse Education becomes Ecole Ducasse and embraces a new signature : master more than cooking.

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