Summer season is approaching, and we look already forward meeting you. However, due to Covid restrictions, we had to adapt our Summer Programs. The health and well-being of each participant remains our priority.
The World of Culinary Arts program gives young people the opportunity to explore their interests, unlock new passions, and make new friends in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
This dynamic Swiss summer program takes a holistic approach to participants’ growth– blending engaging, hands-on learning with experiences that boost confidence and create lasting memories. A summer spent with us will help prepare you for a brilliant future.
World of Culinary Arts is open to young people aged 16-20 and runs over three weeks, with new excursions and activities each week.
Your learning experience
The academic program gives participants a global view of the culinary industry and the opportunity to learn from top chefs in our state-of-the-art demonstration kitchens. You will learn how a professional kitchen works, prepare a variety of dishes and desserts – with a focus on chocolate and pastry – and find out what it takes to start and manage a restaurant business.

Montreux is set on the shores of Lake Geneva in the heart of the Swiss Riviera, with stunning views of the Alps and the terraced vineyards of Lavaux. Benefiting from a unique microclimate, the city has an undeniable Mediterranean flair. The region is especially rich in cultural events, including the unmissable Montreux Jazz Festival.

Wednesdays are set aside for exciting excursions that have a focus on adventure, and every evening you will enjoy themed entertainment with your new friends, including a casino night, karaoke, and fun Olympiads.
