Gastronomy scholarship winner
2013 Scholarship recipients

World famous culinary arts and hospitality school, Le Cordon Bleu, in collaboration with Southern Cross University have announced the recipients of the 2013 Education & Industry Professional Scholarships for the Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism.

Tuition scholarships of $5000 were awarded to Jarrod Scott, Marketing Manager for Oxenberry & Scarpantoni Wines, and Tara Loty, Outreach and Mentoring Manager for the University of Wollongong to undertake units from the Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism program in 2013.

Partial scholarships (valued at $2500) were also awarded in recognition of highly commendable applicants. These were awarded to Lucy Macdonald, Project Manager, delicious magazine Produce Awards and Judy Squire, Hospitality Teacher at Ignatius Park College.

Le Cordon Bleu Australia’s Manager, Educational Leadership, Dr Roger Haden said “the field was very strong, with a high calibre of professionals from varied backgrounds applying in this, our first round of the scholarship offer.”

“The quality of applications demonstrates that our degree is attracting innovative, passionate people committed to community and lifelong education and who will be future leaders in food and wine tourism. Applicants showed a clear desire to share their knowledge and experience” he said.

“Gastronomic tourism is helping to revive rural ways of life and strengthen cultural traditions. It is a growing market sector fostering employment in hospitality and artisan food and wine production and an area of increasing interest for study” Dr Haden added.

Recipient of the Industry scholarship, Jarrod Scott, believes “studying the Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism will broaden the scope of what I already know from working at Oxenberry Farm Wines & Café and will better arm me to continue spreading the delights of gastronomy to the wider public.”
