                As soon as we filmed our MasterChef Australia episode inside Le Cordon Bleu with Chef Andre Sandison, I knew I wanted to study there. I loved the support, knowledge and facilities on offer and couldn't wait to be a part of such a fantastic learning environment.

                What I enjoyed the most about my course was the practical side because I’m artistic and creative and eventually I want to open my own pâtisserie.
