In addition to winning numePaul Bocuse logorous competitions, he was awarded the Oficier du Mérite Agricole medal, Cevalier des Palmer Academique.  He is also known for having walked from town to town throughout France to learn his trade, much the way Institut Paul Bocuse chefs of the past completed a “Tour de France” on foot.

She was a postdoctoral researcher in the Agricultural Economics Department at Laval University, Quebec City before joining the Institut Paul Bocuse Research Centre in September 2009, where she is now a researcher. She was also an associate researcher at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) in Grenoble, France.    Her research in the fields of Behavioral Economics and Public Health focuses on food choice behaviors in contexts at home and away from home. She also teaches Masters level courses in Consumer Behavior and Public Health at the Institut Paul Bocuse and occasionally teaches courses in other French universities and engineering schools.
