Le Cordon Bleu is your Culinary Career & Education Guide

As your culinary career and education partner, Le Cordon Bleu commends the work you do to shape young minds and set the foundation for the culinary industry’s future professionals. We can be an extension of your class by providing a number of classroom resources to enhance your curriculum. In addition, our chef can come to your class and give a presentation. We also invite you to visit our school for a tour or field trip. Just call the campus to arrange an event. You and your students are also welcome to tour our campus individually.

It is our hope that after finishing high school, your students will continue their culinary journey at Le Cordon Bleu. As the leading culinary educator*, we’re dedicated to teaching aspiring culinarians the key fundamentals of cooking and helping them develop their creativity and future culinary career.

Le Cordon Bleu is partners with ProStart, FCCLA, SkillsUSA, ACF, and C-Cap, and we offer various academic and competition scholarships [LEARN MORE]. Tell your students to check them out, and encourage them to test their skills at a scholarship competition. In addition to the scholarships offered at all our schools, individual schools may have their own scholarships. Let your students know that, for more information, they can contact us or reference our catalogs.

Even if you aren't a cooking teacher, you may have students who are interested in entering our industry as well as those who don’t know what they want to do in the future. We can present an option for them and would be happy to come to your school for a career day or presentation about the foodservice and hospitality industries.
