 - Eden Grinshpan, Grand Diplôme

Le Cordon Bleu turn out some of the most exceptional students who are eager and enthusiastic to join the industry. The quality of the teaching chefs at Le Cordon Bleu London guarantees that the graduates will be of the highest standards.”

- Alain Roux, Three Michelin starred chef and chef-patron of The Waterside Inn

Le Cordon Bleu's vast international network and world-renowned reputation struck me as the perfect launch pad for that next step. I found the structure of the Cuisine Diploma particularly appealing and was drawn to how there was a strong initial grounding in the fundamentals of classic French cuisine with more complex, contemporary techniques successively layered on top as the learning curve steepened. I was also very impressed by the investment that had gone into the new state-of-the-art facilities at Bloomsbury Square.”

- Guan Chua, Diplôme de Cuisine

Le Cordon Bleu has been the stepping stone for me to achieve my dream, and for that I will be forever grateful.”

-Sarah Thompson, Diplôme de Pâtisserie
