Culinary Event Alert: Le Cordon Bleu Challenge
This Thursday, January 14th, Le Cordon Bleu schools around the country will be holding Le Cordon Bleu Challenge Events to mark the anniversary of the first-ever cooking demonstration on an electric stove which took place at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris in 1896.
Students, alumni, and local area personalities will compete for the “Le Cordon Bleu” title by putting their own twist on the Poulet Saute aux Fines Herbes (Sauteed Chicken with Herbs) dish. Dishes will be tasted and voted on by attendees in order to crown the winner at each school. Entry to the event is $25 per person with a portion of the proceeds donated to the local Ronald McDonald House.
Additionally, these events will officially mark the re-branding of the Career Education Corporation (CEC) culinary arts schools to the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu ® brand name. Chef Kirk T. Bachmann, vice president, academics, Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts notes, “This competition highlights the great tradition of Le Cordon Bleu and the passion for cooking shared by our students, instructors and alumni.”
Le Cordon Bleu Challenge events will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. Space is limited. Purchase tickets at http://lecordonbleu.eventbrite.com and find more information about Le Cordon Bleu here.
