  3. 3. ONCE UPON A TIME... ONCE UPON A TIME... The origin of the expression “Cordon Bleu” comes from the 1578 foundation of the Order of Knights of the Holy Spirit; whose spectacular banquets were legendary and whose members wore a medal suspended from a blue ribbon. Today, “Cordon Bleu” is used in the French language to designate an outstanding Chef. In 1895, journalist Marthe Distel published the weekly magazine, La Cuisinière Cordon Bleu; the school was opened shortly after, and the international reputation of Le Cordon Bleu spread so rapidly that by 1927, the London Daily Mail referred to the Cordon Bleu as a “Babel of nationalities” because of the diversity of students’ nationalities. Many great chefs have passed through the doors of Le Cordon Bleu. Most notable was Henri-Paul Pellaprat, author of L’Art Culinaire Moderne. Chef Pellaprat taught at the school for 32 years and contributed to codifying French culinary art as it is known and respected today. LE CORDON BLEU PARIS

Once mastered, these techniques can be applied to any world cuisine. Demonstration classes are held in specially equipped classrooms, allowing you to observe the Chef’s techniques in detail. During the demonstrations, the Chef prepares several recipes. You are required to take detailed notes throughout, to record the Chef’s explanations and to make your own observations. Demonstrations also include a tasting, which enables you to develop your palate, a vital part of culinary training. At Le Cordon Bleu Paris, all basic and intermediate level demonstrations are given in French and translated into English. By the time you reach superior level, you should feel comfortable following the class in French. Hands-on practical classes are held in professional teaching kitchens and supervised by Le Cordon Bleu Chefs.

  21. 21. QUESTIONS... Source : Fotolia © Rodin museum, 7th district, Paris I am serious about becoming a Chef and opening my own restau- rant - what’s the best course for me? We recommend the Grand Diplôme® for comprehensive and intensive training in cuisine and patisserie. If you prefer to specialize in just one field, choose the Diplôme de Cuisine or the Diplôme de Pâtisserie. I am not sure if I want to do the whole diploma program, what should I do? Simply apply for one of the Basic-level certificates. It will give you an excellent grounding in cuisine or patisserie and based on availability you can always continue the next levels in the future. If I decide to do the Diplôme or Grand Diplôme® – is there some kind of discount? The Diplôme and the Grand Diplôme® are the best formula for the ambitious student in search of a time effective culinary education. A Diplôme or Grand Diplôme® also gives a significant tuition fees advantage compared to enrolling for each certificate separately. Are courses held in the evening or on Saturday? At some point in your studies at Le Cordon Bleu you will surely have a class that takes place in the evening and/or on Saturday. LE CORDON BLEU PARIS

Personal expenses vary greatly; some students live on small budgets, others on generous ones. 500 euros for food and incidentals is the estimated minimum. Should I start looking for a place to live prior to my arrival in Paris or should I arrive at least two weeks in advance? Either way will work. More and more students are looking for housing before they arrive by using the internet. Can I work part-time if I am a foreign student? There are no possibilities to work in France if you do not have a work permit. To be able to work in France, foreign students would have to obtain a work visa through the French immigration authorities. This process is long and work permits are very difficult to obtain.LE CORDON BLEU PARIS
