On November 1st 2013, during the French Gourmet Festival, which showcases French products, Mr Guillaume Garot, Minister of the Agri-food industry, visited Le Cordon Bleu Seoul in Korea.
The French Gourmet Festival included a series of events which were aimed at introducing the people of Korea to new French culinary art and fine dining products, as well as products that are already on the market. As part of the festival, Chef Franck Poupard from Le Cordon Bleu Paris gave a traditional French cuisine demonstration to students of Le Cordon Bleu Korea and a number of special guests.

Mr Jérôme Pasquier, French Ambassador to Korea and the President of the Maîtres Cuisiniers de France were also present.
