Lenôtre has opened a new Culinary Arts School north of Bangkok, in Muang Thong Thani. With facilities of more than 3,000 m2 and carefully selected teachers, “it aspires to become a benchmark in the training of culinary arts professions in Southeast Asia. Education in gastronomy, knowledge of great culinary novelties, knowledge sharing, support and transmission are the pillars of the success of this new center”, comments the CEO of Lenôtre, Olivier Voarick.
The school, which covers all areas of gastronomy, including pastry, will offer long and short courses for beginners and professionals in small groups of 12 students maximum. In addition, it has seven classrooms, an auditorium, a research laboratory, an organic garden, a library, a cafeteria, and a research and development laboratory that includes an ice cream area and a chocolate area.
One of the particularities of Lenôtre Culinary Arts School Thailand is its commitment to the environment. For this reason, it introduces students to urban agriculture and awareness of new sustainable practices, while sharing the keys to cooking tomorrow.
This opening, says the president Nathalie Bellon-Szabo, “is an important step in the history of the Maison and helps to promote the French art of living beyond our borders. With a committed and resolutely progressive pedagogy, we are proud to participate in the training of future generations of chefs who will make the French gastronomy of tomorrow world famous”.
