These immersive learning experiences offer independent restaurateurs and hotel res-taurant Chefs the possibility to meet and exchange with their peers. Most importantly, the courses will allow them to deepen their knowledge and discover some of the best tips to add value to their menus and adapt their offer to new consumer expectations. Participants who go through the program, delivered in English by top international Chefs, will be awarded a certificate of completion.

Inside Joël Robuchon’s Kitchen

In honor of the great Joël Robuchon, a historic friend of EHL, the first program in the series will be a gastronomy course held on June 7 and 8, 2021 entitled "Inside Joël Robuchon’s Kitchen". Offered by Chef Philippe Braun, his fellow and companions for over 30 years and partner in 2 France for the eponymous Ateliers, he will share exclusive recipes and techniques with par-ticipants that will help them master a different approach to refining their cuisine, inspired by the "cook of the century."

"What an honor to be able to represent our Master "Joël Robuchon" in this temple of Excel-lence that he appreciated so much, which passionately trains the elite of our professions. The transmission of knowledge was very dear to Joël. He often spoke to us about it with his mis-chievous smile when he evoked his project of an institute in which was so important to him, partnership with EHL", said Philippe Braun.
