I travelled extensively in my career being able to study online both the Master of Arts in Gastronomy and the Master of Gastronomic Tourism allowed me to keep up with international food trends and influences from a global perspective.
Because I live in such an isolated place, I don’t get a lot of opportunity to network. Online Learning gives me an avenue to explore and share my love of gastronomy and the culinary world. It gives me a little link into the world that I love.
Education is the beginning but never the end. Pursuing my Master of Gastronomic Tourism at Le Cordon Bleu is expanding my knowledge and my opportunities for the future. This scholarship ensures that I can keep growing as professional.

The Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism online program has already given me a greater appreciation of food sustainability, event and destination marketing, management principles, food writing and restaurant reviewing. I highly recommend this course to anyone seeking to further their knowledge and skills in the exciting world of gastronomic tourism.
The flexibility of the on-line delivery allows me to successfully manage my studies around work and home life with the added bonus of being a member of a network of like-minded individuals who share a similar passion.
The simple nourishment of food and drink is not just something ordinary. It is magical – how a bowl of Pho Bo can transport your mind to colonial Vietnam, for example! Being granted the 2014 Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism Industry Professional Scholarship will enable me to enrich my understanding of food and wine experiences as they relate to my profession. I haven’t previously rushed into a Master degree for the sake of having one. I have been patiently building my skills waiting for the right topic to stir me. And here it is: Gastronomic Tourism.
The Master of Gastronomic Tourism provides a unique learning environment that is quite different to traditional on-campus study environments. The online delivery encourages the development of relationships between students' and lecturers' and the small cohort allows for more intimate discussion and accessible interaction.
The Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism has strengthened my appreciation for food and wine and has given me the opportunity to study a range of topics from the history of gastronomy through to destination marketing. The program has allowed me to build on my existing knowledge and qualifications and has provided me with the foundation for an exciting and rewarding career in gastronomic tourism.
