Layla and Nicolas talk about their experience at FERRANDI with their chef-instructor Sébastien de Massard.
Taught in English - 5 months (660 hours) + optional 3 month internship
For international students considering a career in a food-related business, FERRANDI offers an intensive 5-month training program in English that will prepare them to face the challenges of the trade.
The 5-month program is followed by an internship in a professional kitchen to give students the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned and to gain hands-on experience that will provide them with an edge in their resumés.
Not only do we teach our students culinary skills and the foundations of cuisine, we also train them in professional-grade kitchens with state-of-the-art equipment and in the student-run restaurant, where they manage the kitchen and prepare meals for real clients.
Groups are limited to 12 to 14 participants to resemble as closely as possible a kitchen brigade.
Our program includes 660 teaching hours during which students will be taught:
The curriculum is supplemented by special events such as guest chef demonstrations ; visits to producers or sites of interest ; workshops on gastronomy-related themes.
Students who successfully complete the training portion of the program may choose to intern with one of FERRANDI's partners who include prestigious restaurants, hotels and pastry shops in Paris and around France. The internship is a unique experience to apply the skills learned during the training and to gain a first professional experience.
All teaching in this program will be in English (or in French with simultaneous translation). Course materials will be in French and/or in English.
FERRANDI prides itself in the quality of its facilities, instructors and professional network. Our students and graduates are sought after by Michelin-starred restaurants, luxury hotels and renowned chefs for their professionalism and their ability to integrate a kitchen quickly and efficiently.
Graduates of the FERRANDI Intensive Professional Program in French Cuisine move on to careers in prestigious restaurants in France and abroad or start their own businesses in their home countries.
