I loved studying at Le Cordon Bleu because of the variety of nationalities within my class. Le Cordon Bleu has a very high level of standards and is highly respected in the culinary industry and throughout the world, which gives every student a higher chance to travel the world as a chef. I really enjoyed how they marked every lesson it made every day important, so it forced me to push myself. Le Cordon Bleu classes are practical and hands on; this was my favourite because I feel that this is the best way to learn, especially for me.
Le Cordon Bleu Wellington has given me the best 9 months of my life. My experience under the watchful eyes of the highly regarded Chefs here has not only been rewarding, challenging but most of all has confirmed my passion for all things culinary. I have been taught a number of invaluable skills that will stay with me forever. With each and every class being more exciting and fulfilling than the last. I have been constantly reminded of how fast paced, exciting and ever-changing this industry is, and although we’re taught the traditional classics of French cuisine we are always encouraged to bring our own creativity and flair to our products always preparing us for the future after graduation
I have always had much love and passion for food ever since I was a kid. While researching about culinary schools on my last year of college I came across Le Cordon Bleu. Knowing that Le Cordon Bleu is one of the most prestigious culinary schools in the world I was excited to find out that Le Cordon Bleu was opening in the Heart of New Zealand, Wellington. Studying at Le Cordon Bleu Wellington for 9 months as a cuisine student was definitely the most awesome experience I have ever had. I was able to learn many cooking techniques, be taught by highly experienced chef tutors and even assist celebrity chefs during ‘Wellington on a Plate.’
