Trout Point Lodge is pleased to announce that it has placed number 5 on a list of the world’s top 10 hotel culinary schools just published by Fox News in the United States and curated by Gayot.com.

“Both globetrotting gourmets and rookie cooks should check out the world’s top 10 hotel culinary schools where everyone can take lessons while on holiday,” stated the article.

This Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia, wilderness lodge was singled out as embodying cutting edge offerings for tourists: “Rugged wilderness, sustainable food practices and cozy quarters that include freestanding cottages make this Atlantic Canada lodge one of our favorites.” The commentary authored by the food-oriented guide Gayot also praised Trout Point’s “innovative French Acadian cuisine.” The Lodge was the only hotel on the list representing Canada.

Other hotels among the top 10 include Villa Giona of Verona, Italy, and the Sazon Cooking School at Casa de Sierra Nevada, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Trout Point Lodge has earned 5 stars in the Inn category from Canada Select and is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Gayot was founded by André & Alain Gayot. André Gayot, who with his friends

Henri Gault and Christian Millau coined and promoted the term “Nouvelle Cuisine” in the early 1970s, has been directing sophisticated travelers to the world’s best restaurants, hotels, shops, sightseeing and cultural attractions for more than 45 years. His expertise provided a foundation for Gayot guides in the United States, beginning in 1981.

Alain Gayot, André’s son, participated in the launch of the American guide book series and began researching ways to distribute the content electronically, initially with Minitel technology in the early ’90s, later with partners of the Prodigy network, and finally on the web with AOL and other media companies.
