The 13th Worldwide Alliance promotion

On May 2, 2017

On Tuesday May 2nd, 49 international students coming from 12 members of the Institut Paul Bocuse Worldwide Alliance did their intake at Château du Vivier (Ecully, France). Ambassadors of their own cultures, they all came to Institut Paul Bocuse to learn French gastronomy and experience the French lifestyle.

From May 2nd to August 5th 2017, these top students selected by their universities will discover French gastronomic know-how. They will acquire new culinary techniques, improve skills, share knowledge, and especially live an incredible human adventure during 3 months at Institut Paul Bocuse, France. This yearly intensive culinary immersion will also enable them to meet people from all over the world, create bonds between each other, and speak new languages such as Spanish, Finnish, Chinese, or even Korean.

Throughout the program, some dedicated highlights will allow international students to showcase their own culinary cultures and traditions. Therefore, the 7th edition of the Concours Cuisine du Monde will be organized next July 13th. Ambassadors and consuls of their respective countries will be part of the jury and will assess teams on both culinary and arts de la table creations.

Every year, transmission and team work are at the heart of the Worldwide Alliance Summer Camp. This intensive program combines both practical and theoretic lessons, visits and tastings, meetings with producers, demonstrations by famous chefs. Since  Summer 2015, students also get the opportunity to open and run their own restaurant during 6 weeks.This real-life situation at the Living Lab - restaurant of the Research Center of Institut Paul Bocuse - provides them a global vision of the profession and sometimes reveals entrepreneurship.

Stay tuned for the Alliance Alumni success stories!
