120 years of excellence in teaching the Culinary Arts and Hotel Management in video

With a network of more than 35 schools in 20 countries, Le Cordon Bleu is the world’s leading network of Culinary Arts and Hotel Management institutes. The role of Le Cordon Bleu is to teach a whole range of technical and University training programmes for working in the restaurant, hotel and tourism industry.

Founded in 1895, Le Cordon Bleu Institute has been teaching the techniques and expertise inherited from the great names of French cuisine for 120 years. Every year, the network of Le Cordon Bleu Institutes trains 20 000 students of 100 nationalities in cuisine, pastry, bread-making, wine, and hotel management.

Right from the very beginning, Le Cordon Bleu demonstrated an appreciation of other countries and cultures by welcoming international students to its birthplace, Paris. Lessons are taught in French by the professors and translated into English by a translator which provides a multi-cultural learning environment. In order to showcase French culture around the world, the institute has spread its wings beyond France. French culinary techniques are always taught, no matter where Le Cordon Bleu Institute is located in the world, but students are also given the opportunity to highlight their own country’s culinary heritage.
