How cooking changed the life of young Filipino

Discover the James Diño's success story


From culinary education to reintegration


DUCASSE Education resulted from the will of Alain Ducasse to share his passion and his culinary know-how to the next generation of chefs in France, but not only…

Thanks to the opening in 2017 of our first Institute abroad in the Philippines, it is more than a hundred students who followed our culinary programs at Enderun Colleges in Manila.

The commitment of DUCASSE Education in the transmission of it know-how is also expressed through several societal initiatives. As demonstrated by the collaboration 3 years ago between DUCASSE Education Philippines and the Tuloy Foundation which helps young Filipinos in need. By this partnership was born  Youth With a Future. A humanist project whose mission is to help young people to be reintegrated thanks to a culinary education. In this way since its creation, Youth With a Future allowed to more than twenty people from the Tuloy Foundation, to get a scholarship in order to follow a 3-month culinary program taught by DUCASSE Education Philippines at Enderun Colleges.

The promising James Diño had the opportunity to follow this program. After his training, he worked in the kitchens of the Four Seasons of Dubaï before joining a few weeks ago the Jules Verne, Michelin-starred restaurant by Alain Ducasse located at the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. It is with a great pride that our Head of Pedagogy, Dimitri Amouroux, welcomed him for his first day in the capital.

The best is yet to come for this young Filipino who has now all the keys to succeed in life.
