23rd September 2022: The prestigious École Ducasse has joined forces with Globeducate, one of the world´s leading K-12 education groups with 55+ premium bilingual and international schools in 10 countries, educating 31,000 students. The partnership aims at introducing young people to the world of culinary arts and pastry arts, by experiencing the profession, and possibly giving rise to aspirations for the future. The partners are approaching their collaboration with the goal of creating opportunities between the different institutions of their respective networks.
École Ducasse’s ambition is to inspire this new generation of Globeducate students from a very young age and to help them discover high-end gastronomy, as well as develop their taste and senses while making them aware of the importance of a healthy and planet-friendly diet, in line with Ecole Ducasse’s culinary philosophy.
The interest Ecole Ducasse has in planet-friendly, sustainable diets, resonates with Globeducate´s agenda to tackle the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and its partnerships with Eco-Schools and WWF. The partnership gives another tangible way for young people in Globeducate schools to use their skills and understanding to shape the world.
The pupils of the Parisian Globeducate EIB bilingual schools and their families will have the opportunity enjoy fun, dedicated workshops to discover cooking and pastry-making; and will be able to take part in week-long “cooking camps” from the age of four during all school holidays at the Ecole Ducasse Paris Studio, a 500m2 space in the heart of the capital’s 16th arrondissement. The camps will allow children and teenagers to discover the basics of Alain Ducasse’s cooking around savory and sweet recipes, which are anti-waste, healthy and tasty, and which they will be able to taste after preparing them.
Globeducate´s key principles of educational excellence, developing skills and competencies, building character, and nurturing global perspectives, are the foundation for preparing students for success within the global community. Students develop skills and abilities beyond the purely academic and this partnership underlines this commitment, giving the potential for students to gain new experiences with this leading gastronomic school.
In order to share special moments with their families, pupils will have access to “duet with their parents” cooking and pastry classes on Wednesday afternoons throughout the year.
