Le Cordon Bleu Paris celebrates Mexican culinary culture
May 2018 – Mexican culinary culture is showcased at Le Cordon Bleu Paris institute with Chefs Aldo Omar Morales and Cédric Carême. Aldo Omar Morales is a Mexican cuisine Chef and Cedric Carême is technical director of Pastry and Boulangerie at Le Cordon Bleu Mexico.
Students, representatives from the Mexican Embassy in France, journalists, and influential individuals were treated to a Mexican cuisine demonstration by Chefs Morales and Carême. The demonstration included a nopal cactus salad and milk rice, panna cotta, black sesame crumble, black beer ice cream, mango coulis.
A lucky few then had the opportunity to take part in a 3 hour culinary workshop with the Chefs from Le Cordon Bleu Mexico institute. Eric Girardin, Vice-President of the France Mexico Friendship Group at the National Assembly, also took part in the workshop. This was the chance to discover the secrets of local Mexican cuisine and to make two Mexican dishes, using local ingredients, alongside Chefs Aldo Omar Morales and Cédric Carême. The two recipes made were:
- pork loin with mole and Chicatanas ants
- three milk cake with vanilla ice cream.
