A Tradition of Culinary Excellence

The Le Cordon Bleu story is legendary – beginning with Marthe Distel’s famous culinary journal “La Cuisiniere Cordon Bleu,” French cuisine’s central reference point and largest recipe catalogue. The immediate success of Distel’s journal inspired the opening – in Paris later that same year – of the first Le Cordon Bleu culinary school. Since that day over a century ago, the Le Cordon Bleu program has trained generations of accomplished culinary professionals.

A new chapter of the Le Cordon Bleu story was opened with Le Cordon Bleu Schools North America. This partnership makes the world-renowned culinary expertise of Le Cordon Bleu available to more aspiring culinary professionals than ever.
