Our Story

We began in 2021 as a specialized team within the renowned Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts, the largest culinary school brand in the USA.1

Our aim was to collaborate with organizations dedicated to enhancing their employees’ educational experiences. The industry signaled a strong desire not just to support their workforce, but to actively find new avenues for attracting, developing, and retaining top talent through tailored learning and education solutions.

Acknowledging this unmet need, we evolved. In 2023, we became Auguste Escoffier Global Solutions, an autonomous entity singularly focused on addressing the distinct challenges of the culinary and hospitality sectors. Born out of industry demand, we are committed to delivering targeted solutions that transform your workforce and elevate your operations. Join us on this exciting journey to reshape the future of culinary and hospitality workforce development.

About Auguste Escoffier

Auguste Escoffier, the namesake of our organization, was a pioneering French chef who revolutionized the culinary world.

Born in 1846, Escoffier is often regarded as the “King of Chefs and Chef of Kings,” a testament to his transformative influence on classical cuisine. He streamlined kitchen operations, introduced the brigade system, and codified French culinary techniques in his seminal works such as “Le Guide Culinaire.”

Escoffier’s passion for the art of cooking and his innovative approach to culinary education serves as the cornerstone for our mission at Escoffier Global: to empower the next generation of culinary artists with the tools, training, and resources they need to excel.
