Welcome to the Hautes Etudes du Goût website !
The first ten years have enabled us to validate the relevance of our original concept.
To date, the cultural backgrounds and individual profiles of our students have perfectly matched our original objectives.
Students come from more than 30 different countries and represent a range of professional backgrounds, but all share a curiosity and passion for the culture of taste and gastronomy, which provides them with a common motivation to learn and grow in their own careers.
The students find the program intense, rich, innovative and multidisciplinary: "We did not know that there was such a corpus of knowledge available and, more important, that it could be made accessible to people like us", reported one of the students.
Each year, the professors express a high degree of satisfaction with the quality, curiosity and enthusiasm of HEG's students and are happy to share their latest research findings to interested and dedicated classes.
We are now preparing the October 2016 program (12th class), another enriching program, concentrated over a period of 2 weeks, with half the classes and events conducted in Paris and the other half in Reims.
Check out the latest information on our website.
Do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
Alumni are also happy to give their own personal feedback and advice.
See you soon at Hautes Etudes du Goût !
