I was lucky enough to book 4 months in advance to do a bread making course here at the wonderful Le Cordon Bleu cookery school. It was fabulous. Conducted in French but a top boulangere and translated to English, as is the tradition at the school. We learnt about flour, gluten, different grades and different breads. We needed, rolled, slammed... More

I have now been to nearly all the one day Cordon Bleu courses in Paris. The good points are that it is interesting to visit the school, the courses (remarkably) are cheaper in Paris than London - and some of the courses are worthwhile. Now the negatives. It is widely felt that Cordon Bleu cookery school has become a "finishing... More

I took the 2-day saucier course in June of 2014. The chef instructor was excellent and the recipes to die for. The class ended early enough that I could take my days work, grab a baguette and meet my wife and son at the Eiffel tower for an early dinner/late lunch picnic. It was a perfect little scenario. We stayed... More

I was lucky enough to be given a private guided tour of Le Cordon Bleu Paris. My guide, Karine, was very informative and also passionate about the school. I was impressed by the friendly atmosphere and how welcome we were made to feel. It was a normal day in the life of the students, which helped me understand some of... More

I attended the Provence 6-hour cooking class. We prepared the lamb, sauces and vegetable course with the chef, but did not make the lavendar soufflé or ice cream as advertised. We spent over an hour cutting the artichoke by hand like his grandmother taught him. Then, chopped and "frenched" the bone on the chopped meat. It was very labor intensive... More

If you love baking, the freshly baked pastry short course at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris is a must do!!! Chef Walter and Rhona make this experience unforgettable... they create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in a professional environment where you can learn a lot. Not only do you bake, but you also taste and take home delicious brioches, croissants... More

my wife and i were very excited about taking the market and cooking class during our month long stay in April. The class started late, our walk to the market was 30 minutes each way and much was lost in translation as the chef spoke french and we did not. (our fault for not speaking french). we were not impressed.... More

Chef Marc Vaca shopped for fresh ingredients at the market in the morning, and in the afternoon demonstrated ways to use them. The session was interesting and informative--and interactive because he encouraged questions from the class. We have recipes to replicate the food he made and some new techniques to try at home. It was a wonderful experience to be... More

It was amazing to see the chef prepare 3 different kinds of macaroons. He offered tips during the class. Pay close attention otherwise you may not catch every word from the translator.

The instruction was in French but there was a wonderful translator present the entire time. My classmates were awesome and the overall exerience was a dream come true. I fed many people,... More
