Le Cordon Bleu Rio de Janeiro Culinary Arts Diploma graduation ceremony took place on April 3rd. To celebrate this occasion, students and their guests were invited to Blue Note, a jazz club overviewing the beautiful Lagoa. The night went smoothly to the sound of jazzy notes while awarding our first class of Grand Diplôme, Diplôme Patisserie and Diplôme Cuisine Superior Level. 

We couldn’t be prouder of our students! 18 stars that completed the Superior Level and showed through their talented hands that French culinary lives in the tropical Brazil as well! What a journey. 

The ceremony went along with a special speech of our Director Sofia Mesquita and the Head Chefs João Paulo and Philippe Brye and a message from the Technical Academic Director Patrick Martin. The words...
