    Deciding to join Le Cordon Bleu was simultaneously one of the most challenging yet most rewarding experiences I've had, ever. I've always wanted to have my own restaurant so deciding on a culinary academy that would both enhance my skills and give me the confidence to pursue this dream of mine was a huge priority, for which I'm glad to say, that I found all these and more at Le Cordon Bleu Malaysia. The lessons, the camaraderie amongst fellow chefs and the cooking will be memories that is hard to forget.

    After joining Le Cordon Bleu there is no looking for me in the food industry. Thanks to professional guidance of Chef Rodolphe and Chef David - Chef instructors of Le Cordon Bleu Malaysia, I was able to refine my cooking techniques and that gave me a great head star into the working world as a chef. This is because Le Cordon Bleu does not only retain its classical cooking techniques but also introduces students to cutting edge culinary techniques that are used in the industry today. For that, I am proud to be a part of the Le Cordon Bleu alumni.

    l really enjoyed myself during my time at Le Cordon Bleu. I have learned a lot from the Lecturer Chefs there. Le Cordon Bleu do not cut corners either on the ingredients we used to learn to cook or on the Lecturer Chefs. They bring in the best Chefs, whom are strict but fair and they teach you all the trick of the trade in cooking and French Cuisine
