HAMPTON -- Chez Boucher, a top-tier French culinary school opened a new education facility at 321 Lafayette Road, Hampton. Chez Boucher's expanded new teaching facility is designed specifically for hands-on culinary arts education and immersion in classic French techniques.

The new facility will offer students space and resources for active, participatory learning. Chef Ron Boucher and his team have furnished the new school with ample countertop work stations, seated teaching areas, buffet and dining spaces, and large pantry and refrigerated storage. Boucher (CED, AAC), is licensed by the state of New Hampshire and endorsed by the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The six-month professional training program allows students to maintain part-time employment. Participatory classes are taught four days per week, for six hours each day for 16 weeks in the school's kitchen; students then are required to complete eight weeks of practical externship training in the professional environment of partnering area restaurants.
