The School in France

Discover the culinary art school

Since its creation 50 years ago, our school embodies the passion for transmission that drove its founder, Gaston Lenôtre. The generations of chefs who succeed each other are inspired by the same desire to defend and promote French gastronomic heritage. We share the expertise of our Maison with our students, trainees, and professionals who join us. We are guided by the desire to pass on the secrets of our chefs’ creativity.


Accessible, modern, and welcoming premises

Since April 5, 2021, The école Lenôtre is located in brand-new premises in Rungis (94), near Paris, just a stone’s throw away from one of the largest gourmet supplier markets. The school provides a pleasant living environment, easily accessible through various transportation options, and equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for optimal quality education.
