One more week passed by discovering every day Disciples Escoffier engaged more than ever in this now global surge of solidarity.

With his school Cuisine Mode d’Emploi(s) and the help of his bakery trainer from the Paris training center, they together make the breads that accompany the packed lunches that will be distributed by the volunteers of Resto du Coeur 75.
In Switzerland, our Young Talents Escoffier have shown their imagination under the impulse of their President Pierre Alain Favre, this is how Danaé Serena and Celine Maier proposed enticing recipes while Antonia Eugster and Shania Colombo created wonderful cocktails.
Many chefs continue to share their knowledge with as many people as Benoit Sinthon in Madeira in Portugal, Marcel Ravin in Monaco or Emmanuel Lehrer in Cagnes sur Mer.

The operation #DisciplesEscoffieSolidarity launched last week by Disciples Escoffier Pays France under the french hashtag #TousEscoffierTousSolidaires and with a huge relay from the Country of France chaired by Patrick Guat has been a great success in France and is starting to emulate other countries around the globe.
Pierre Alain Favre, President of Swiss Country and International Vice President for Europe, Robert Fontana, International Vice Presidnet for Asia Pacific, Lahcen Hafid President of Morocco Country, Yves Bouvier President of Indian Ocean Countries and International Vice President for Africa Indian Ocean and Stéphane Oprea President of Romania Country thus relayed the information in large numbers within their respective delegations. A beautiful planetary momentum is emerging.
