4Experiences of French School Graduates

French Cuisine Research Course
The 10 months where I learned and felt many things such as French culture and French peoples’ sensibilities.
Syunsui OoishiAt the France school, everyday from Monday to Friday, I repeated the restaurant simulation training. More than ever speed and preciseness were required in the training, which eventually enabled me to enhance my skills.
Although each day was pretty difficult, my fellow classmates and I encouraged each other as we were all aiming for the same goal.
After completing the France School course, I did an internship at a well-known restaurant for 5 months, working side by side with the French staff. Not only was I able to learn the skills, but I was also able to get a hands on feel for how the French people work, their sensibilities and dedication towards the profession. The experience will surely be advantageous for me as a professional in the world of cuisine.

Patisserie Research Course
The experience and encounters I came across in such an authentic environment enabled me to grow immensely.
Chisa HasegawaWhat I was first in awe of was the abundance of food ingredients.
I was blown away by the fruits, butters, and wide variety of breads that I’ve never even seen before. During the restaurant simulation training, we used such ingredients to make French confectioneries.
At first, I was baffled by all the new confectioneries, but with daily practical training, I soon learned the techniques in speed, preciseness and teamwork in confectionery production.
Everyday I was immersed in confectioneries, as on the evenings we had meetings, and on the days off I would visit famous patisseries. The strict training I received from the local staff during practical training was also a valuable experience. The environment enabled me to grow immensely as I was able to attain a stronger mentality and skills.
