A programme developed to understand the techniques of haute cuisine, to understand the culinary processes and to learn to interact with products. With a solid and complete training, students develop their creative potential and become able to express their own vision of gastronomy.
These are the main scenario of the transmission of knowledge in the school. As the Chef develops the recipes of the programme, he explains the techniques and shows the students the steps to be followed in the practical sessions.
The recipes serve as support for the teaching of techniques and are the basis for the development of the skills of the future professionals.
Le Cordon Bleu Madrid is equipped with three demonstration classrooms with a fully equipped, where the chefs deliver their explanations.
To follow the demonstrations in detail the student has screens distributed around the room and a sloping ceiling-mounted mirror, which reflects the chef’s worktop.
The session ends with a tasting that helps students educate their palate and develop their skills in the decoration and presentation of dishes.
The advice I would give to those who want to study at this school is that, if the really like to cook or to bake, if the really think the gastronomical world is for them, then don’t be afraid and enrol because, even though it will demand a lot of hard work and lots of effort, they won’t regret it, if this is your passion this is the ideal place to study.
If I had to give any advice to those thinking of being brave enough to study at Le Cordon Bleu it would be to not feel intimidated by the effort and the sacrifice that you’ll need to make, you’ll have to put lots of hours into your course, but the reward is very fulfilling.
I love this school, I miss it very much and would love to be able to return. In nine months they teach you everything you would have learned at another school in years. It is very intense and you have to practice a lot but the rewards are great.
For me it has been a stage in life where I could only gain: gain knowledge, gain friends, gain experience and the desire to better myself every day.
Here you'll learn everything. They teach you that, whatever challenge you take up, you´ll be able to overcome it. I would recommend it to anyone who likes cooking and really wants to learn."
