L’Atelier des Chefs was founded in Paris in 2004 by French brothers Nicolas and Francois Bergerault where they launched the first 30 minutes cooking class. Success was immediate and the Paris atelier was the first of many, with further ateliers opening throughout France, Dubai, and London in less than five years.

With a network of 18 ateliers, l’Atelier des Chefs is the largest cookery school in Europe. Cooking classes range from 30 minutes to 4 hours and cover all world cuisines. All classes are run by professional chefs and offer a truly unique hands-on cook & dine experience. Groups cook in small teams under expert guidance, picking up tips from the chef, before sitting down together to enjoy the food they have prepared. L’Atelier des Chefs organizes private and corporate events, hosting corporate, team building and client hospitality events, PR, brand and product launch events.
