CIL Expands with a New Baking and Pastry Lab

Back to News

CULINARY INSTITUTE LENOTRE® college is expanding! On Jan. 27, college founders Alain and Marie Lenotre symbolically cut the ribbon to officially open the new labs.

The addition of these labs ensures that our baking and pastry students can engage in hands-on learning and practice for their future culinary arts careers at both entry-level one and advanced level 5.

This lab introduces CIL’s second traditional bread oven as well as other improvements. With more space per student, 1 student per table, social distancing is easily practiced as the pandemic continues.

The lab allows our instructors to continue to mentor students in small classes with a ratio of 12 students to one teacher. This enables our instructors, who average 15 years of experience as professional chefs in upscale bakeries and restaurants around the world, to help students focus on their skills in hands-on classes.

We have welcomed students from more than 25 countries to explore traditional French cuisine and international dishes, and we provide lifelong career support.

We offer two diplomas, three associate of applied science degrees, and five elective options, including sommelier, hotel and restaurant management, and artistic skills of pastry décor. Students may choose between morning, afternoon, or evening classes to fit their schedules and develop their skills to reach their professional goals.

The school also provides financial aid assistance and scholarship options for returning students, international students, divorced and widowed students, veterans, and more.
