Les Marmitons give back to students!
The Ottawa-Gatineau chapter of Les Marmitons is a group of business men who have one common passion: culinary arts! Since 2008, La Cité collégiale has welcomed them into its teaching restaurant, Les Jardins de La Cité, to create their culinary masterpieces. At each event, a renowned chef proposes a menu and supervises each creative team as they prepare their dish. The group organizes an annual fundraising event and donates the proceeds to various organizations.
In exchange for the use of our facilities, Les Marmitons have created a scholarship fund to which they make annual contributions. Every year, students in the Culinary Management or the Hospitality Management – Hotel and Restaurant program benefit from a Perseverance Scholarship on behalf of Les Marmitons.
This year, the Ottawa-Gatineau chapter of Les Marmitons donated $5 000.
