Le Cordon Bleu’s innovative online video competition in Taiwan, which ends today, has attracted some of the country’s most passionate young amateur chefs. In a bid to win one of four scholarships, students from across the country put their creativity and culinary skills to the test producing some entertaining and professional looking clips.
As part of their three minute video entry, students were asked to put their culinary skills on show, including the presentation of a dish using local ingredients, as well as show how Le Cordon Bleu could help them achieve their career goals. And the response was impressive, with more than 60 videos now uploaded, with some fantastic results.
And now it’s over to the public to see what they think of the competition entries. Until 5th July, the general public will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite video entry. So if you would like to choose which video you think should win, cast your vote now !
After voting comes to an end, the top 5 clips, as voted by the public, as well as the top 10 entries as chosen by Le Cordon Bleu, will be invited to cook their feature dishes for our judges, in order to get through to the next round in the competition. At this semi-final stage, the top 15 entries will prepare their feature dishes from the video for the judges, who will then choose the top 5 contestants. These finalists will have the opportunity to work with Chef Jean-Jacques Tranchant and Chef Eric Bédiat!
This competition will really give our Taiwanese fans the chance to take their cooking skills to the next level, and hopefully as a result, secure a scholarship to one of four Le Cordon Bleu campuses. And it’s not just good news for the entrants, anyone who votes for one of the videos will go in to the draw to win one of 50 free Le Cordon Bleu prizes or to attend the final stage, so don’t wait, get on to the site and cast your vote…
