French baguette receives Unesco heritage status

Le Cordon Bleu London was delighted to hear the recent news that the French baguette has received Unesco heritage status as part of the body’s intangible cultural heritage list.

Celebrating an essential part of French daily life, the artisanal know-how and culture of baguette bread is now a part of a list of 600 other items chosen by Unesco as culturally important.

The baguette is globally recognised as a quintessential part of the French identity, and the skills needed to make this iconic product are taught at our Le Cordon Bleu institutes.

At Le Cordon Bleu London Bakery School we have developed a series of bakery courses for those wanting to uncover the secrets of artisan bread making and traditional boulangerie. From our boulangerie diploma to our range of short courses, our bakery and bread making classes are based on mastering bread and dough techniques.

Our 7-month Diplôme de Boulangerie aims to teach students a variety of techniques like basic bread doughs, viennoiserie, and sourdoughs as well as the essential knowledge required for running a small bakery business.

We offer a selection of one day courses to learn very specific skills focusing on one main topic such as Artisan Italian Bread or Breakfast Baking. Our short courses have been created for food enthusiasts who would like to expand their baking techniques and knowledge.

All bread making, baking and viennoiseries courses and diploma are taught by our professionally trained Master Bakers.
