Sommet Education and Ducasse Education create new global culinary initiative, École Ducasse

École Ducasse offers a broad range of culinary programmes across three stunning locations

The winning combination of the excellence in French gastronomy and the performance of the Swiss educational model combining theory and practice – Benoît-Etienne Domenget, CEO of Sommet Education

Driven by a strong growth in the gastronomy sector, École Ducasse aims to provide tailored education programmes for all students, from food enthusiasts to seasoned professionals, and from adults changing career path to young graduates.

École Ducasse will offer a broad range of programmes, responding to an international demand while keeping in line with Alain Ducasse’s DNA: “philosophy of excellence, combining the perfect transmission of well-mastered culinary techniques and expertise with a resolutely contemporary approach to gastronomy”. The École Ducasse’s three schools are:

  • École Ducasse – Paris Studio, in the heart of the 16th arrondissement
  • École Ducasse – École Nationale Supérieure de Pâtisserie, located in Yssingeaux in the Haute-Loire region in France
  • École Ducasse – Paris Campus, a new campus in Meudon specialising in culinary arts, which will welcome students from September 2020

Benoît-Etienne Domenget, CEO of Sommet Education, commented that it is “the winning combination of the excellence in French gastronomy and the performance of the Swiss educational model combining theory and practice” that brings great opportunity.

Elise Masurel has been appointed managing director of the new venture.
