A Special Christmas Gift from Le Cordon Bleu London

Le Cordon Bleu London are delighted to announce an exclusive offer for aspiring culinary professionals keen to get new skills in 2020. Le Cordon Bleu has arranged special gift bags for the first fifty applicants to a basic certificate in either Cuisine or Pâtisserie, starting in January 2020.

The gift bags are bursting with exciting products perfect for any food lover, including*: At least two cookery books, fine products from Belazu, a special subscription offer from Delicious Magazine, Borough Market: Market Life magazine, tickets for the London Cabaret Club, treats from Planet Organic, Merchant Gourmet and English Tea Shop and more.

By signing up to our Basic Cuisine or Basic Pâtisserie certificates you will be taking the first step on your culinary journey, and what better way to start the new year? From day one of your course you will begin to develop a foundation of skills and knowledge, under the guidance of some of the most respected chefs in the UK. Both courses are full-time and have been designed to give beginners a strong grounding in classic French cuisine techniques or pastry skills. The basic certificates are the first step in completing your diploma, so applicants for the Grand Diplôme, Diplôme de Cuisine and Diplôme de Pâtisserie are eligible for the gift too.

To redeem your Christmas gift bag quote XMASGIFT19 on the application form, next to the preferred course date section. For online applications, please write the code in any one of the available text boxes.
