I attended the Adelaide Le Cordon Bleu Food Photography & Styling workshop 2018. The amount of information received and actually taken in was incredible. There were people of all skill levels and I believe each one of us progressed in our own skills over the two days. Highly recommended and I can't wait to further my knowledge with Le Cordon Bleu again soon. Alexandra Kate - The Botanical Table
