Caterer and Hotelkeeper is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend the world-famous Institut Paul Bocuse in Lyon, France.
Together with the Best Practice Forum, Professional Association of Catering Education and Hospitality and Leisure Manpower, we are arranging a bespoke professional development programme running from 16 to 18 February 2010.
The programme will include a series of practical masterclasses in the latest French culinary techniques, including pastry work, and tutored tastings matching foods with wine. Delegates will dine at some of Lyon's top gastronomic restaurants including "Saisons", two-Michelin-starred Guy Lassausaie and "Buchan Layonnais" le Garet.
We have identified six college chef-lecturers wishing to attend the programme. Now, we are looking for six chefs from industry to accompany them. After the programme, we will invite all delegates to a Caterer debate to share their experiences and discuss ways in which industry and academia can work together more closely to ensure students enter hospitality with the skills employers need.
We anticipate the total cost of the complete programme for each delegate will be around £1,475, including all tuition, return air fare and accommodation.
To be considered as a delegate, contact by firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, 2 December.
