You can follow in the footsteps of Le Cordon Bleu’s many famous graduates, like Julia Child, Eric and Bruce Bromberg and Ming Tsai. Currently offering both professional education and workshops for non-professionals, all of Le Cordon Bleu’s courses are taught in French and translated into English. There are a number of short-term courses and demonstrations which last for just a day so if you are a real for food enthusiast, the “no time” card won’t be enough of an excuse for you.
