How does a teaching restaurant work exactly? Here is how:

Welcome to class!
To eat at La Relève gourmande is an opportunity to witness our students training in full live action. In addition to treating your taste buds, you also become an essential player in their learning.

100% student-made
Any of the food you will be tasting is prepared and served with love by our students as part of their practical courses. Take the opportunity to treat yourself to a dessert or to the cocktail creation of the moment! 

Our instructors on the lookout
Throughout the school year, our instructors take turns in the kitchen and the dining room to supervise the work of the students and teach them the basics of their future profession. As any conductor of an orchestra, they make sure that any false notes from our young apprentices are caught and turned into learning opportunities. 

I’ll always remember my very last service. My colleague and I had given ourselves the challenge of making a tableside service for our whole section. It was the most intense hour of my time at the ITHQ! But I remember that we did it with a smile and, above all, with the feeling that we had pleased our customers.
