School Food Technology Trip to Paris
French gastronomy is listed as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO, and a food technology school trip to Paris is the best way for your students to discover this!
A food technology school trip to Paris offers a great choice of visits. Some of the most popular among our groups include a demonstration at a local boulangerie, a visit to the huge Rungis Wholesale Market and a cookery demonstration at a catering school.
Paris is the perfect city for your students to expand their ideas and improve their designing and making skills. And if they weren’t passionate about food beforehand, they certainly will be when they return! You can also choose to turn this into a cross-curricular school trip to Paris, by joining forces with the art, science, history, French, business studies or fashion departments at your school.
