Background: You are never to young to learn. That should be the motto of this school situated in the 13th Arrondissment of Paris, capital of France.
Here the children of this part of the city are taught how to cook and prepare food at a very early age - many of them are only four years old and the oldest is six.
Tackling their work with all the seriousness of grown-ups, they learn how to mix the ingredients, how to use whisks and egg beaters without hurting themselves, how to lay the table, and how to enjoy the meal - although the last subject needs very little schooling.
Every once in a while the children get an opportunity to prepare a very special cake when one of their number celebrates a birthday.
When our cameraman visited the school, no less than three were celebrating their birthdays and special cakes had been baked for the occasion.
