Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts-Las Vegas
The Le Cordon Bleu schools in the U.S. invite local residents to watch as Las Vegas chefs, personalities and students team up to compete for the Le Cordon Bleu title. The competition is taking place to celebrate the re-naming of the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.
The transition to the Le Cordon Bleu brand name reflects a continued commitment, on behalf of the faculty and staff, to provide students with the foundation for a fulfilling career opportunity in the hospitality industry. The name change will officially be recognized with a ribbon cutting ceremony during the Le Cordon Bleu Challenge Event on Jan. 14, which marks the first-ever cooking demonstration on an electric stove at Le Cordon Bleu Paris in 1896.
Three teams will put their own modern twist on the classic Poulet Sauté aux Fines Herbes (Sautéed Chicken with Herbs).
Attendees will be able to taste the competition dish created by each team and vote to determine the winner. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to the local Ronald McDonald House.
Ward Daughters, Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, is available for an interview or in-studio demonstration of the signature dish.
