French Culinary Techniques Around the World



Le Cordon Bleu Daikanyama’s Annual School Festival will be held on October 13th (Monday/holiday). This year’s festival is devoted to the development of French culinary techniques around the world.

On the day, we will offering a variety of activities that will appeal to all five senses including: participating in trial demonstration/practical classes and tasting sessions and we will also be presenting recipes that featured in the movie, “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” (Distributed by Walt Disney Japan; screening nationwide from Saturday, Nov. 1st.), which has continued to promote French cuisine around the world. As an extra treat, the public can view the 1906 recipe book used in the film, as it will be exhibited in one of the demonstration rooms. At La Boutique, current students will make and sell a menu designated by the chefs and graduate students will run the “Alumni Market” featuring a variety of stalls.

OPEN10:00/CLOSE 16:30 (Last order for dine-in customers in the Café at 16:30pm)

The Hundred-Foot Journey
will be released 1st November

This is a heart warming movie about Madame Mallory, who runs a prestigious restaurant in the South of France, and the feud that erupts with a family from India, who open up an incompatible restaurant across the road. Hassan is the second eldest son of the Indian family and a talented chef whose deceased mother, who was also a cook, always taught him that “taste matters.” During the feud, Hassan decides he wants to learn French culinary techniques and takes inspiration from a recipe book from Le Cordon Bleu. We feel that Le Cordon Bleu students across the world share Hassan’s passion for cooking, and “The Hundred-Foot Journey” is definitely a movie for those who love to cook. We have organized a variety of events at the School Festival in which you can experience French culinary techniques from the perspective of the movie.
