As part of the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, Monaco’s Vocational and Catering School (Lycée Technique et Hôtelier de Monaco) (LTHM) has the privilege of hosting two leading Canadian chefs, Daniel and Raphaël Vezina, from 15 March for a few days.

During this time, these two renowned chefs will share their experience and know-how with the students of the Hospitality section of the LTHM, at numerous cookery workshops.

The Department of Education, Youth and Sport, the Consulate of Canada in Monaco and the Canadian Club of Monaco wished to join forces with regard to their aims and potential so that students of the LTHM can enrich their training by discovering new gastronomic traditions, as well as Canadian culture. Contacts have already been made that will enable some pupils to continue their higher education studies in Canada.

It should be emphasised that this approach forms part of the many educational initiatives offered by the LTHM. These initiatives have already enabled the pupils to find out about Chinese and Russian culture through gastronomy.
