March 2019 - To mark International Women’s Day, Le Cordon Bleu institute will focus on women, from a variety of backgrounds, who have turned their passion into their profession.


Conference by Denis Saillard, professor and consultant on Le Cordon Bleu Advanced Studies in Taste (HEG) programme:
How, in the aftermath of the Second World War, did three famous chefs, one English, one American and one French, all of whom trained at Le Cordon Bleu Paris, play a key role in disseminating French cuisine throughout the United States? Dione Lucas, Julia Child and Madeleine Kamman embarked on three extraordinary journeys, breaking down the barriers of habits and pre-conceived ideas. An ode to creativity and freedom.
