Westpac celebrates its 199th year.
On April 6th, Westpac bank celebrated its 199th year with a lavish lunch featuring political leaders and present and former chairs. Held at the beautiful Walsh Bay leading lights and a roll call of prominent s were treated to a lavish luncheon menu prepared by Le Cordon Bleu Sydney students working alongside Hive catering.
24 chefs worked alongside our students in a gourmand space to ensure 600 executives were fed and entertained with all ten Le Cordon Bleu students coming from various levels and skills from basic through to superior. With such a large function students were treated to the pace and excitement of a premium event, and were able to participate across both the cuisine and patisserie stations.
A unique location Walsh Bay Arts & Commerce was established in 2007 to represent the business interests of the vibrant Walsh Bay community. Harnessing the collective resources of its members, a focus on the sustainability of the precinct is led by it’s beautiful location and publicity initiatives and is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike in New South Wales.
With Le Cordon Bleu students able to gain valuable experience at this event, many other Cuisine and Pâtisserie students ask, ‘What can I do if I have no experience?” Our Career Services team are integral in obtaining such opportunities for our students and are able and willing to assist students in gaining experience in the industry, whilst undertaking their course and studies with Le Cordon Bleu. This lunch was the perfect example of how students are able to gain invaluable experience and add something impressive to their resume.
