General Information About L'Academie de Cuisine
Francois Dionot founded L’Academie de Cuisine in 1976. At the time, he was at the apex of a career that had stretched from the prestigious Lausanne Hotel and Culinary School in Switzerland to the rigorous kitchens of French chefs, to some of the finest restaurants in the U.S. As a result of his culinary experience, he became firmly convinced that simple technique and dedicated practice are the true keys to the success of kitchen professionals. With this understanding, and motivated by a passion to bring great food and superior cooking to American kitchens, Francois created L’Academie de Cuisine.
