“Classic or modern there is only one cuisine the good”
As a matter of fact, cooking is an art based on creativity, passion and inspiration.
At La Chef Levi, we welcome people who wish to combine art with the necessary training having a basic goal.
The fastest professional evolution.
How is this achieved?
The key to become a successful Chef is the right mix of practical and theoretical knowledge. The right professional in the field of Culinary Art must have a sphere of knowledge that will cultivate his imagination but at the same time will rely on a structured thought to avoid mistakes and fails.
This is achieved through quality education, which has duration and recognized efficacy.
At La Chef Levi, we are totally aware of what that means. Since 1989, we remain the first private Culinary School in Greece and the only one, even down to the present time, that offers exclusively two specialties.
What does it really mean and how does it affect The Pastry Studies?
Specialization is the result of dedication and choice.
In order to be able to reach the highest level, you owe it to yourself and the art you serve, to devote the necessary time and attention. For this reason and from the very first day, we have not changed our orientation and offer only two specialties. So we can maintain the best level of education.
In this way, we lend our full weight, time and dedication to those who wish to become professional Chefs and Pastry Chefs.
La Chef Levi is the only School that does not accept students from other schools at any time to continue/complete their studies here. We maintain a specific educational process without interference and foreign additions, dealing entirely with the students who have been with us from day one so that we can provide them with all the knowledge they need.
No other School can guarantee that. This way, we ensure the best education for our students.
That’s the choice we make. Which will be yours?
Each group is formed with a specific number of students in order to maintain the quality of studies. Thus, we avoid our students completing the course having unanswered questions. Upon graduation, they will have received all the essential knowledge and experiences that have provably created professionals in Greece and abroad over the last 30 years.
Moreover, it is very important for us all at La Chef Levi to establish direct contact between teachers and learners, both during the course and outside the courses, for any questions whatsoever. We encourage every student to ask things, make mistakes, overcome challenges and we are here to work with each individual so as to achieve the best possible outcome.
The award-winning Chefs and the experienced Instructors of the School in the specially designed facilities take care every day so that each course becomes a stepping stone towards the labor market by dedicating to each student as much time as it takes to assimilate the course.
School’s facilities provide the sense of a real kitchen with all the necessary tools and modern equipment that will prepare students for their better integration into any professional space.
La Chef Levi, the only Greek School abroad.
Gastronomy is the most labor absorbing industry at the moment worldwide. The increased needs, the globalization of the market and the possibilities offered by Cooking and Pastry Art are limitless.
Thus, at La Chef Levi, we decided to expand our educational horizons and create even more opportunities for our students, founding the first Greek School of Gastronomy abroad, along with French and Chefs from all over the world, in Algiers.
This way, we have created a global educational network for knowledge exchange and specialized staff. At the same time, we continue to observe firsthand the new trends in the industry, which we include in the courses by enriching the knowledge of our students worldwide.
For 8 years, La Chef Levi group is the first and only educational group of Gastronomy in Greece.
This potential offers increased opportunities for our students, both in the quality of their studies and in the expanded labor market.
Our students outperform the competition and claim all the best job posts in the labor market in Greece, Cyprus and abroad.
Workshops cover the largest part of the curriculum and are carried out consistently both years of study.
Investing in new techniques, equipment and the abundance of raw materials combined with the existence of only two specialties, creates the perfect educational environment for the students of the School. This way, our students become unrivaled professionals ready to claim their working future both in Greece and abroad. School’s curriculum includes all the necessary knowledge that makes a Chef, offering pluralism in international cuisines and modern techniques.
In March 2020, during which Covid-19 pandemic has changed drastically the landscape in everyday life, work and education, La Chef Levi was the only School that introduced tele-education directly and effectively.
According to a decree of Greek Government, all educational units in the country suspended their operation until May 18th. La Chef Levi, from the very next day, implemented the plan that had already been elaborated, starting tele-education to over 150 students in all groups without exception.
School’s goal from the outset was to utilize the students’ time during the quarantine period, to continue the theoretical courses seamlessly and to enrich knowledge in issues related to their workshop knowledge, such as molecular gastronomy, food pairing and new trends in the industry. Chefs had to opportunity to learn valuable techniques from their computer screen such as vegetable carving, 3D cakes and edible petals. Students had sourced the relevant materials according the instructions of the School and followed what their Chefs demonstrated.
Students from Crete, Ioannina, Rhodes, Athens and Cyprus met their Instructors digitally and continued the valuable work of education. At a time when everything shut down, education continued.
Needless to say that from the very beginning, it was pointed out to the students that once the reopening of the training units is allowed, there will be catch-up courses for all practical lessons. The promise of the School became a reality as soon as the restarting of the School was announced, always with utmost respect to the decisions of the Ministry of Education.
For two months, the School’s students went on as normal, this time from the screen of their computer or mobile phone, all the courses without losing contact with their studies and development. Always following the instructions of the Hellenic National Public Health Organization (EODY) and taking additional measures for the safety of students, we did it!
No lesson was lost! We are proud of being the only School that managed to catch up on all courses while our students attended a total of 50 hours of additional courses at no cost.
This is the responsibility that we have since 1989 in Greece and abroad towards thousands of graduates and students of La Chef Levi Group.
To be always present regardless of difficulties and continue to offer for all those who trust us with their future and dreams. Creation never stops.
With long experience in the industry as the first private School of Cooking and Pastry-Bakery in Greece, we have the knowledge, proven means and duration that education needs.
If you wish to study both specialties and receive both diplomas, there is the possibility of parallel course attendance or in three years.
We’re standing next to our graduates
Even after the completion of the study courses, La Chef Levi is in constant communication with its students, following their professional steps and providing them with professional and counseling guidance for their careers.
At La Chef Levi, we want our students to choose the work that pleases them and to shape its conditions. It is not enough for us just a job for each of our students. We want the best possible position in the labor market for everyone. And the ideal job for each student is the one that he/she chooses.
That’s exactly what we take care of. To provide all the essential knowledge and experiences to our students so that they can choose the job they want.
Because each one of you is a unique case for us.
