Le Cordon Bleu Paris at Europain 11th - 14th January 2020
Le Cordon Bleu Paris, will take part in the Europain exhibition from 11th - 14th January 2020, at the Porte de Versailles (Paris’s 15th district). Recognised as the largest international boulangerie and pastry exhibition, the aim of the 2020 event is to reflect the changes which have impacted the profession and the market, and to inspire professionals and entrepreneurs who have their sights firmly fixed on the future.
During the exhibition, visitors will be welcomed by Le Cordon Bleu Paris institute students and the team of boulangerie chefs through the Europain Lab. This new and inspirational boulangerie concept, measuring 280 m2, was set up by Sylvie Amar & Partners, in partnership with Moulins Viron. The idea behind this pop-up boulangerie came from an educational project, during which Le Cordon Bleu Paris institute students were given the opportunity to work as a team. Come and see the Europain Lab from 11th January, a definitively modern pop-up venue which will provide a wealth of ideas, with priority given to quality, product seasonality, nutritional information, and zero waste.
Visitors are welcome to visit Le Cordon Bleu stand N78 – Hall 1. Teams and representatives will be present during the fair to showcase the variety of programmes and various activities such as demonstrations by chefs instructors from the institute.
