Success stories

First of all I chose École Ducasse for Chef Alain Ducasse's reputation, expertise and philosophy. To me it appears that he founded one of the best schools in France. I recommend it to everyone for the high level of practice, the quality of the products students work with, the amazing expertise of the chef instructors and the passion of the fellow students we grow with each day!
