Le Cordon Bleu at Tasting Australia

Le Cordon Bleu Australia was pleased to again support the 2016 Tasting Australia events held in Adelaide.

One of the main attractions was 30 of Australia’s most passionate bloggers presenting an enticing program of expert speakers intermingled with some great South Australian food experiences. Our own, Dr Roger Haden, shares some notes from his presentation at Words to Go 2016, a culinary and travel bloggers forum that ran as part of Tasting Australia. Our students, from the Le Cordon Bleu Australia Bachelor of Business (Food Entrepreneurship), also enjoyed the opportunity to meet with South Australia’s finest food producers at Think Food, an industry-focused tradeshow.

Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide's culinary arts students were given the opportunity to work with iconic chef Cheong Liew as he presented his "A Cheong Liew Retrospective" dinner.
