The Rocks, Sydney transformed into a Chocolate Oasis!
The Smooth Festival was a chance to indulge in 2 days of decadent desserts! Launched in 2014, this is only the second year running but the festival has proved to be a big success and hugely popular.
Le Cordon Bleu Sydney provided around 20 of our basic and intermediate patisserie students to volunteer at the event, assisting from marketing to cooking and preparation. It proved to be an invaluable experience for them; to just be a part of the occasion, see how it all takes place behind the scenes, and to build on their confidence.
The InterContinental Sydney presented Smooth Chocolate High Tea Stands at The Cortile, inspired by the festival. One of our students completed their Industry Placement with The InterContinental Sydney and has continued to work there part time whilst completing their diploma.
Similarly, the Shangri-La Sydney (located in close proximity to The Rocks), inspired by the festival offers a Wickedly Sweet Chocolate Afternoon Tea for two with their “Sweetest Stay” package. Another of our Le Cordon Bleu Sydney Bachelor students is now undertaking his Industry Placement here.
