Association La Marmite is located in the metropolitan area of Paris and its main goal is helping homeless and unemployed people from all around the world providing them with shelter and comfort.
The Parisian association carries out various support activities, with the purpose of helping the less fortunate in finding a job and thus obtaining economic and social stability. Professional chef training is one of these activities and it is coordinated by head chef Vincent Piette. Chef Vincent wants to offer these people an accelerated training in the culinary field using his great expertise, skills and his valuable knowledge. Thanks to this open, dynamic and flexible environment, La Marmite is a very hospitable place where everyone can speak their mind, expressing their ideas and using their resources. The result is the creation of small culinary art works.
