Renata Portasio, Brazil, Grand Diplôme® 2006
"My biggest challenge, even though I'm Brazilian, Latin, was speaking French. During the first 6 months we spent the whole day at the institute and only speaking English but thanks to the Intership Pathway program and help from the entire Le Cordon Bleu team from the maintenance staff, Chefs Instructors I learned the basis to be able to leave the institute and start my new adventure of internship!"
"I guess I would say that boulangerie made me a Francophile! I have such a deep appreciation and understanding of French bread culture now. I made friends and professional connections that I’ve maintained to this day. My bakery skill set and professional network continues to grow."
"Being the only Indonesian and youngest one really sets me apart from the rest of the pack. However, I was privileged enough to be guided by these 2 amazing chefs who gave me a revolutionary culinary mindset."
"France really pushed me out of my confit zone and made me to grow so much as a person. I not only learned about wine there but about the food, the language, the history and the overall culture. Sure, you can read about these things or gain this knowledge without moving there but pushing yourself to live the experience is what makes you grow. I did that when coming to Paris."
Sahar Ghavidel, Iran, Diplôme de Pâtisserie with Internship Pathway and Diplôme de Boulangerie, 2022
