Avant-garde Three Course Lunch

Bachelor of Culinary Arts and Business

Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand recently hosted an Avant-Garde culinary journey through the school with a three-course lunch, set in different themed spaces. This unique culinary event was expertly created and prepared by our talented third-year Bachelor of Culinary Arts and Business students as part of their studies and incorporates International ingredients, cutting-edge techniques, and ingenuity in line with the students two papers - Professional Gastronomic Practice and Decision Making and Strategy.

The theme of the three-course lunch was Modern French cuisine, which enabled students to introduce international flavours into French dishes, and to experiment with the techniques of molecular gastronomy such as spherification.
