Alain Passard, French chef and owner of the three-star restaurant L'Arpege, came to Sciences Po on 8 November 2017 to give an exceptional masterclass to students from the School of Management and Innovation.

Trying to find students to interview who come from distant and atypical lands is certainly the easiest part of my job, given the cultural palette that is present within the School of Communication. The hardest part is to try to settle on an appropriate hour and place where the interview can take place; it has been barely a week since school has been back on the menu and goodness me, we are already stuffed like turkeys at Thanksgiving.
