From 25 to 29 July 2016, basic Culinary Arts students (Cuisine and Pastry Programmes) took part in their first lesson about Le Cordon Bleu Paris vegetable garden.
Culinary Arts students discovered the vegetable garden of the new Le Cordon Bleu Paris institute. 800 m² of greenery on the roof with 52 planters containing a variety of fruit and vegetables as well as numerous aromatic herbs, but also bee hives for producing honey, 4 compost bins and, soon to be installed, an insect hotel. Students not only had the opportunity to learn a great deal, but also to taste the different vegetables and aromatic herbs.
Curious-minded and keen to learn, they will soon take part in a new lesson to learn more about how to cook fruit, vegetables and aromatic herbs that they came across on the vegetable garden roof of their institute.
The company Ecovégétal, professionals in the field of making roofs and car parks into green havens and soil stabilisation, was in charge of the visit and will return to give forthcoming lessons to students.
