Le Cordon Bleu Logo

Le Grand Diplôme® is currently the most complete and renowned culinary programme. It consists of the “Cuisine Diploma” (Basic, Intermediate and Superior Certificates) and the “Pastry Diploma” (Basic, Intermediate and Superior Certificates).

Le Cordon Bleu offers the most complete theoretical-practical training combining Chef demonstrations and practical sessions. Demonstration classes are taught in especially designed rooms and all the necessary equipment to observe in detail the work and techniques used by the Chef instructor.

After the demonstration, that lasts approximately 3 hours, students can taste what has been cooked, which allows them to learn to identify the different textures and flavours — an essential part of their training —.
The practical classes allow students to apply the techniques learnt during the Chef demonstration. All students have their own professional workspace and the School provides all the necessary ingredients to individually elaborate their own recipe from beginning to end, always under the supervision of a Chef.

    I love this school, I miss it very much and would love to be able to return. In nine months they teach you everything you would have learned at another school in years. It is very intense and you have to practice a lot but the rewards are great.

    The advice I would give to those who want to study at this school is that, if the really like to cook or to bake, if the really think the gastronomical world is for them, then don’t be afraid and enrol because, even though it will demand a lot of hard work and lots of effort, they won’t regret it, if this is your passion this is the ideal place to study.

    It is clear that I would recommend Le Cordon Bleu Madrid. I have already recommended it to my friends to come and study, because if you want to learn French cuisine and French pastry, it is a very professional school. The teachers are very good, that's why the experience for me is very beautiful.
