What kind of seminar is it? Do I simply watch or do I actively participate?
Our Academy is structured according to the standards of the French Academies (Hands-On), which means that each participating professional is at a workstation where they will perform the recipe techniques.
In which language does each Masterclass take place?
Each Chef speaks his/her own language, which is usually French. That is why we have made sure that there are interpreters for both the Greek and the English speaking participants.

Do you have a recipe book?
On the first day of the seminar, inside the Student’s Pack you receive, you will find a recipe book in Greek. There will be corresponding recipe books in English and French, depending on each participant’s native language.
