Foodies Rejoice – Le Cordon Bleu School to Open in Paris

The goal of a Le Cordon Bleu school is to help prepare its students for an exciting career covering culinary arts to culinary operations and management. This well known institution is recognized as the biggest network of culinary and hospitality schools anywhere in the world.

A new Le Cordon Bleu school is scheduled to open in Paris, France. The new school opens June, 22, 2016 and will be located on the banks of the Seine River, near the Statue of Liberty. The new culinary school is also next to the famous Beaugrenelle shopping centre, nearby the iconic Eiffel Tower.

It’s expected that the newest Le Cordon Bleu school will enroll greater than 1,000 culinary students each year. They will learn all there is to know about culinary arts and wine, hotel and restaurant management. Their training program education will prepare them for the fast, growing culinary industry.

The Paris school is 4,000 square meters in size and will feature the latest modern technology and equipment. The stylish, school building was designed and built to be eco-friendly. With a contemporary look, it was made out of aluminum and glass.

As the world’s population continues to grow, so does the number of restaurants. It’s been reported that there is a shortage of chefs. A key driver is the relatively low salary they receive. Receiving an education from a top culinary arts and hotel management institute like Le Cordon Bleu can be quite expensive. The chef profession has always seen a high turnover ration. But the abundance of TV chef shows tend to overly glamorize the profession. It’s hard work and long hours. The result is many chefs unfortunately quit.

Below is a summary of just a few of the many features student will enjoy at the new Le Cordon Bleu school in Paris France.

• 7 practical classrooms for cuisine, pastry and boulangerie lessons, including one classroom that has been specially designed for teaching Asian cuisine: Thai, Japanese and Chinese.
• 6 modular classrooms that can be transformed into a 420 m² event space
• 3 large, demonstration rooms
• 1 workshop that’s dedicated to individual or group lessons for cuisine amateurs
• 1 cellar-style room that is dedicated to Wine and Management
• 1 boutique that carries a wide range of products and gourmet gifts. They are carefully selected by Le Cordon Bleu Chefs, as well as an array of cuisine and pastry equipment
• 1 student area with multimedia equipment and large library. Find a wide selection of international culinary books and magazines
• Le Cordon Bleu Café gives students and passers by the opportunity to try a range of quality goods either on site or at home

As part of the eco-friendly design, the building’s roof features a large vegetable garden that is 800 square meters in size. Designed to be energy autonomous, the roof, vegetable garden uses heat from the kitchen hoods. That heat then heats up the green house. Rainwater is collected in a rooftop tank and used ot water th plants.

Not only to grow vegetables, but the roof garden also provides a hands-on way for students to learn about how various fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers can be grown in a city environment.

Le Cordon Bleu provides students around the world training programs covering the following fields: gastronomy, wine, tourism and hotel. Choose from different lengths of programs from an initiation level up to receiving an MBA degree.

If you desire to have a career in the culinary field, then be sure to check out a Le Cordon Bleu school where you live. We enjoy sharing the latest news and food industry announcements. Be sure to stop by again and follow our luxury blog.

Stunning Waldorf Project at Netil House, London

Netil House  - Waldorf Project
Netil House  – Waldorf Project

For an unbelievable night of entertainment, plan on attending The Waldorf Project at the Netil House in London.

Between October 10-14, the global premiere of this spectacular Waldorf Project includes a stylish blend of visual arts, theatrical performance, contemporary choreography and staging, plus fine cuisine and the best rare wine available.

It’s definitely a dining and performance experience to die for as London literally takes center stage for a night to remember.

The Waldorf Project will brilliantly showcase six of the most exciting practitioners in the respective worlds of choreography, design, visual art, theatre, electronic music and gastronomy.

The driving force and director behind the creation of the Waldorf Project is British artist Sean Rogg. The result is the ideal meshing of an unique art performance with visual, aural, creative and performative arts. Topping it off is the chance to enjoy some of the world’s rarest wines and finest, delicious tasting food.

Each of the show’s collaborators was personally and carefully picked by Sean Rogg to represent an imaginative approach to the theme – the rare Japanese muskmelon. In addition they bring their readiness to break boundaries through the most fundamental fusion of their diverse disciplines.

If you are unable to attend this year’s event, be sure experience the Waldorf Project: Chapter Two which be held in the Spring of 2013.

Below is an overview of the Waldorf Project:

Set Design: Gina Geoghegan
Art Director across fields of theatre, film and brand experiences, Gina Geoghegan will transform Netil House into a 5000 square foot hydroponic fantasy land. The immersive environment will be one where the plant culture not only serves as a bewitching backdrop for the performance, but is also incorporated into the menu itself.

Choreography: Imogen Knight
Choreographer and Movement Director Imogen Knight has choreographed eight dancers who will serve guests throughout the evening. The way in which the performers interact with the plates and the space is built into the design of the environment, which itself has been inspired by the food. For The Waldorf Project Imogen has created a performance bridging the gap between naturalism and surrealism, combining darkness and humour and highlighting base human emotions with dramatic effect.

Sound Design: Walls
Winners of the coveted Mojo Electronica Album of the Year award, sound artists Alessio Natalizia and Sam Willis, known together at “Walls”, are two of the most innovative minds working in electronic music today. For the Waldorf Project the duo will create a distinct sonic backdrop for each phase of the evening, completing the multi-sensory experience.

Food Design: Andrew Stellitano and Blanch & Shock
Food design studio Blanch & Shock and gastronomy artist Andrew Stellitano have collaboratively developed the menu as a narrative in 6 courses, moving from the rustic and unprocessed to expertly stylised dishes. Each course has been put together using premium quality produce and will be presented to guests by choreographed dancers.

Wine: Sanford and Benedict
The Waldorf Project will serve fine wines provided by prior owner of legendary California winery Sanford and Benedict. These include arguably the very best two vintages of the last twenty years for the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, 1994 and 1997. Four of the wines are special collaborations with Au Bon Climat, which were never released onto the market. The wines have been tasted throughout the creation of the menu, intrinsically connecting them to the food and ensuring a perfectly synchronized pairing.

    wine glass bottle

    A common question for foodies is how to pair wine with food? The old adage that white wine pairs well with fish while red wine works with meat, serves as good advice to begin.

    Wine expert Brandon Walsh is the president of Reston, Va.-based Hosted Wine Tasting and offers the following wine tips:

    – Try to match the weights of the wine with the food being served.
    – Wines should always be served at their optimal serving temperatures, as well.

    Try these suggested wine and food pairings for a great tasting meal:

    – Lighter-bodied white wines include reisling and pinot grigio.
    – Medium-bodied wines include sauvignon blanc while chardonnay is a fuller, heavier-bodied wine.
    – Lighter-bodied wines go well with salads, as well as light fish, such as sushi.
    – Medium-bodied wines works well with light and flakey fish as well as poultry.
    – Heavier-bodied whites, such as chardonnay, pair very well with salmon or swordfish.

    Mediterranean Diet – Healthy Eating Habits

    Recent news that eating a Mediterranean diet during pregnancy might ward off childhood allergies and asthma just adds to the list of studies suggesting this style of eating has a lot to offer.

    Living longer, lower risks of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and possibly birth defects have all been linked to eating a Mediterranean Diet.

    But is it easy to follow, especially given that the traditional way of eating in many Mediterranean countries – like everywhere else – is now under threat from faster lifestyles and faster more refined foods? Yes, says Dr Antigone Kouris, a Melbourne-based dietician and nutrition research fellow with Monash University, whose own background is Greek.

    While she’s the first to agree that the traditional diet back in Greece is becoming more westernised, she believes that many principles of a Mediterranean diet can be easily adopted in Australia. Here are some good habits to borrow.

    • Eat legumes. They’re common throughout Mediterranean countries and in a traditional Greek diet are eaten twice a week to avoid eating meat for religious reasons, says Kouris, herself part of a research team at Monash University that found legumes to be the most important food contributing to longevity in over 1000 elderly people in five countries.
    • Eat lots of dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, rocket, endive, chicory and amaranth (excellent sources of magnesium and plant omega- 3 fats, she says). You’ll sometimes find amaranth – often called Chinese spinach – displayed with Asian veg in some greengrocers.
    • Eat a range of coloured vegetables including tomatoes and capsicum – they’re high in antioxidants, including lycopene.
    • Use extra virgin olive oil. There’s some evidence, says Kouris, that olive oil, like omega-3 fats, don’t seem to add weight around the waist as much as animal fats and processed (hydrogenated) vegetable fats that are high in saturated and trans fats.
    • Include some fermented foods like yoghurt or fetta cheese that may help provide gut-friendly bacteria.
    • Slow cook meats with vegetables, including tomato, garlic, onion and olive oil. This slow cooking of meat is less likely than grilling to form carcinogens, she says. Stewing also retains nutrients in vegetables.
    • Eat fish and seafood. Traditionally, fish is eaten more often than animal meats, she says.
    • Be generous with herbs like oregano, rosemary, dill and mint; they make vegetables taste great so you want to eat more of them. Indeed, “you don’t hear Greeks saying they hate vegetables,” says Kouris.
    • Snack on nuts and seeds. Traditional snacks include pumpkin seeds, roasted chickpeas, almonds, walnuts, as well as dried and fresh fruit.
    • Think outside the salad dressing and use vinegar as flavouring for other dishes. Besides adding a tangy flavour, says Kouris, it also lowers the GI (Glycemic Index) of foods and helps you absorb more iron.
