What Will I Learn?

While the terms 'modernist cuisine' or 'molecular gastronomy' have been overhyped in recent times, its advocates have clearly had a profound and lasting effect on the contemporary gastronomic landscape. Ferran Adrià, Heston Blumenthal, Massimo Bottura, to name a few, have changed how we taste, enjoy, relate to and experience food. A multi-sensory approach to dining triggers the evocative power of memory as well as shape our cultural and social identities through the dining experience. 
This course covers the growing popularity of this culinary trend, its philosophical basis, importance and global influence. Explore the creative processes and scientific research behind its success, as well as the future of multi-sensory dining.

Course Introduction


  • Irina Sitnikoff
    It was such a great decision to do Le Cordon Bleu Food Photography course, I was a beginner food photographer when I started and I gained so much knowledge! The course is very easy to follow, the learning platform is great and easy to navigate. Nelly Le Comte is amazing. Nelly has many years of experience in photography which she shared during this course. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone. I give 10 out of 10! Very happy.

    This Food Photography class far exceeded my expectations. With huge professionalism, Nelly helped me move out of my comfort zone and experiment with new techniques that have improved my skills. The educational material shared on the platform was very explicit and easy to understand and the live classes with Nelly also served to clarify doubts and receive advice on how to improve our techniques in a very relaxed environment.
