Culinary Students Receive Training in France

A group of 10 hotel management students from Bethlehem University and Notre Dame Center in Jerusalem took a course in French Language and Culinary Arts in Grenoble, France.

The  students were hosted by the Consulate General of France in Jerusalem. They took French classes each morning at Stendhal University of Grenoble, while their afternoons were devoted to exploring the culinary culture of France.

The culinary program was supervised by leaders of the Ecole Hôtelière de Grenoble and specialized in the cuisines and products from five regions of France: Provence, Perigord, Champagne, Brittany and Dauphiné.

The students did not only learn the subtleties of French cuisine, they also learned to assess the quality of raw products like oysters, snails, and cheeses. Other practicalities like data sheet preparation and culinary design were also included in the program.

The students were exited to cook with France’s beautiful products and made some beautiful dishes: ravioli of Provencal snails, foie gras salad with chutney, warm oysters of Bretagne, and salted butter and caramel ice cream.

The students said they found the course unforgettable.
