The Kitchen Brigades

Discover our culinary workshops program offered in high schools as an extracurricular activity.

A structured program that has proven itself!

The Kitchen Brigades is an extra-curricular programme offered in high schools, which reaches young people aged from 12 to 17 through workshops on basic cooking techniques and healthy eating habits.

The Kitchen Brigades are present in 175 schools in Quebec and more than 20 others everywhere in Canada!

The evaluation shows it: the Kitchen Brigades are an incredible opportunity for the youth to learn to cook, while also thriving and developing as responsible citizens!

Thanks to our bountiful partners, the Kitchen Brigades program is offered at low cost! 

The group of 16 to 25 students who follow the program throughout the year benefit from almost 40 hours of practical training in cooking and healthy eating! They acquire knowledge and skills that will be useful to them all their lives!

Inter-school Competition

In Quebec, the Kitchen Brigades workshops end each year with an inter-school competition. After the ⅛, ¼ and ½ finals, the best regional brigades in the province go head-to-head in the spring grand finale hosted by Ricardo Larrivée. The jury, made up of top chefs and members of the industry, assesses the creations of the brigades and crowns the winning school while providing constructive feedback to all participants.

In 2019, the provincial final took place at the ITHQ, and it was the Delta de Matagami school, in the Nord-du-Québec region, that took home the honors!

In 2020 and 2021, these competitions had to be adapted due to the pandemic and government health rules. Due to various regulations the Inter-school competitions are currently underway virtually. Join us May 30th on our social networks where we’ll announce the winners!
