It was a night bathed in chocolate last week at the Le Cordon Bleu Sydney campus. Students from the Diplôme de Patisserie, as well as Bachelor of Business students in Hotel and Restaurant Management, held a special Chocolate Degustation Dinner for members of the hospitality industry.
It was a wonderful opportunity for students to explore their creativity and showcase their skills, exploring ways of incorporating chocolate into every course. And the 50 industry professionals in attendance were certainly impressed, both by the delicious food on show, as well as the high quality service.
It also gave students the opportunity to network with some of Sydney’s premier establishments including the Park Hyatt, Hilton, Four Seasons, Shangri-La, Intercontinental Hotel, Starwood, Hamilton, The Grace Hotel, Sofitel, Stamford Circular Quay, Merivale, Black Star, Sweetness Patisserie and MakMak.
Well done to all students, both in the kitchen and front of house!
