Le Cordon Bleu - London
It was my great privilege to take afternoon tea with the
the London Cordon Bleu. They present an extravaganza
pastries and cakes each month. The venue could not be more convenient:
it’s 108 Marylebone Lane (I’ll tell you more about that stylish
establishment shortly), and it’s just a few yards from their school.
Le Cordon Bleu is celebrated for good reason. It gives its students the
very best of culinary education. Its diploma is the equivalent of a
degree from Oxford or Cambridge or one of the Ivy League universities
in the US. Their London students come from every corner of the world
but are united in their enthusiasm and energy, and they charmed
everyone who attended the event.
