Michel Escoffier Endorsement
November 13th, 2012 by admin
“My Great-grandfather, Auguste Escoffier, made numerous contributions to the culinary world and insisted on the highest standards of excellence in basic cooking skills, food preparation and presentation. Escoffier Online is entirely dedicated to maintaining those standards that my Great-grandfather would have expected and indeed required. As a forward-thinking Master Chef, Auguste would have welcomed and encouraged the ground-breaking online method of teaching.”
– Michel Escoffier, Great-grandson of Auguste Escoffier and President of the Auguste Escoffier Foundation and Museum
About the The Auguste Escoffier Foundation and Museum
The Museum was founded in 1966 by Joseph Donen and other friends and colleagues who had worked with Auguste Escoffier. The Museum is dedicated to perpetuating the memory and great achievements of Escoffier. The three main functions of the foundation are to grow and sustain the Museum of Culinary arts, to provide workshops that develop the culinary knowledge and expertise of chefs across the world, and to participate in and support historical and applied research with experts within the culinary arts and related hospitality fields. The Museum is located in the actual home where Escoffier was born, in the heart of the old village of Villeneube-Loubet, near Nice, France.
