However, this is stipulated in the EGALIM law, which requires, for example, a vegetarian meal per week. This is where Fabrice Martin, school catering referent for the Landes Departmental Council, enters the scene. He has been in charge of production in the school restaurant for 20 years, and is now accompanied by chefs from 34 Landes public colleges in this ecological transition. If this happens, six culinary workshop sessions with an outside chef have been put in place to provide the tools needed for chefs to propose recettes végétariennes adapted to the collective kitchen. Short circuits, seasonal products, evolutionary cooking techniques, balanced menus… So many devices adopted by chefs who are committed to high school students, the local economy and the planet.
