Win Tickets to "The Hundred-Foot Journey" in Australia
In Cinema 14th August 2014

In cinemas on 14th August in Australia, the “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” starring Manish Dayal  as Hassan Kadam is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant - the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren) gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to an all out war between the two establishments. At first Madame Mallory's culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan's gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

To win one of 25 double passes to see the movie e-mail us and tell us about your favourite French culinary experience. Tickets are limited and it’s first in first serve (#100footjourney)!

Sydney Students win Hunter Valley Chocolate Festival
Callebaut Australia Chocolate Competition 2014

Students and Chef’s once again made the annual pilgrimage to the annual Hunter Valley Chocolate Festival on the 5th and 6th of July for a weekend of competition and pure chocolate indulgence in the beautiful surrounds of the Hunter Valley Gardens. Each year this festival draws the créme de la créme of patissiers, Celebrity Chefs and aspirational Patisserie student’s who celebrate all things chocolate.

On both days at the awards ceremonies the team was ecstatic to see that Le Cordon Bleu students had many bronze medals, a great achievement against such fierce and talented competitors. All students who participated can be happy in the knowledge that whilst medals were awarded sometimes it is just the act of competing and learning against your peers that can bring the greatest satisfaction. Well done to all and thank you to the teachers and Chef’s of Le Cordon Bleu Sydney who supported the team!
