About Us

Over the last century Le Cordon Bleu has seen revolutionizing change as we have evolved from a Parisian cooking school to an international network of culinary arts and hospitality institutes. Our philosophy of achieving excellence through constant practice and refinement remains the same, even as we grow to meet the needs of the contemporary culinary and hospitality industries.

In less than one year, it is possible to obtain Le Grand Diplôme Le Cordon Bleu, which is recognized worldwide by culinary professionals; it is the international passport to a rewarding and fulfilling career. At Le Cordon Bleu, we recognize that our students need a superior, well rounded education in order to succeed in today’s competitive world and we provide them with the tools to excel in less time than most other educational institutes.

Today, Le Cordon Bleu has a presence in some 20 countries with more than 35 international schools attended by 20,000 students annually. Students are taught by Le Cordon Bleu International Master Chefs, of which the majority come from Michelin-starred restaurants or are winners of prestigious competitions and titles such as Meilleur Ouvrier de France. They pass on their knowledge of classic French cuisine and modern international culinary techniques to our students.
