Red River College has signed an agreement to become a partner in the Institut Paul Bocuse Worldwide Alliance in France.
By joining the alliance, each educational institution can select its top students for an intensive four-month session at the Institut Paul Bocuse. Every year, the educational program gives 40 students a unique opportunity to perfect their technical skills, discover French culture, while at the same time sharing and showcasing their own culinary culture.
“We are joining a network of expertise that will further benefit our students, staff and programming at the Paterson GlobalFoods Institute, Red River College’s School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts,” said Stephanie Forsyth, president and CEO of Red River College. “The Institut Paul Bocuse is located in Lyon, France, the heartland of food and wine country and this agreement signals partnerships that provide countless benefits to staff, students and our programming.”
The partnership will also allow for student exchange opportunities, as well as instructor exchange, curriculum development and design. It also offers master classes in food, wine and service.
