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 analyse my career up until today, my biggest step was the decision to quit the banking and come to learn to Le Cordon Bleu and, after that, starting my own business, which has been a lifelong dream of mine. Le Cordon Bleu has really given me the confidence and the knowledge I needed to launch into this industry and to bake pastry with a different touch.
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."
I’m speechless, the school has, by far, exceeded my expectations. Mostly by fact of being taught by great chefs, they are teachers with capital letters… ultimately, a great family which I’m extremely proud to be a part of. Life has given me a second chance.
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.
For me, being a student at Le Cordon Bleu has been a really big opportunity, to be part of this prestigious school and of a select group of students has been an honour. My advice to those considering studying at Le Cordon Bleu is, simply, to not overthink it, if they want to start a career in the gastronomical industry, for me, this is their best choice.
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.
