The Great British Cookbook is now in the latter stages of releasing their second book, which raises money for Macmillan Cancer Support and Hospitality Action, and are delighted to announce that Le Cordon Bleu London, leading culinary arts, wine and management school are sponsoring the cookbook.
Founded in Paris in 1895, Le Cordon Bleu has grown from a popular culinary magazine to one of the most prestigious global networks of culinary arts and hospitality management institutes.
In 2012, Le Cordon Bleu London moved from its base on Marylebone Lane to its new state-of-the-art premises, 15 Bloomsbury Square.
Offering a range of industry relevant cuisine, pâtisserie and wine Diplomas alongside a variety of engaging short courses taught by their team of high calibre Master Chefs, students are often considered to be synonymous with outstanding ability across the globe.
Although traditional French culinary techniques remain at the heart of Le Cordon Bleu, the school’s academic programmes continue to be pioneered as a response to consumer and industry demands, which as a result has seen the introduction of the Diploma in Culinary Management and the Diploma in Gastronomy, Nutrition and Food Trends within the last two years.
Le Cordon Bleu’s place in the industry plays an integral part in the success of the hundreds of students who graduate each year. With such a respected reputation, Le Cordon Bleu London also host a number of industry competitions from National Chef of The Year to Bocuse d’Or, which benefit from the professional facilities and equipment.
The Master Chefs at Le Cordon Bleu can often be found on the judging panel at culinary competitions, or sometimes actively competing in their own right. This maintains the vital connection the school has to the industry, and opens a unique opportunity for students to witness first-hand the dedication and passion that chefs require to become and remain successful.
Chef Alan Swinson, Culinary Arts Director at Le Cordon Bleu London comments: “The book is supporting two very worthy causes and we are delighted to be sponsoring this collection of recipes from Britain’s best chefs. With the evolution and transformation of British food over the last two decades The Great British Cookbook brings together and demonstrates the culinary excellence we have to offer today.”
Gary Allen Founder of the book quoted “We are delighted to have the support from such an iconic cookery school who have no doubt had so many chefs involved with the book come through their school. The book will certainly inspire people who want to be part of the hospitality industry and Le Cordon Bleu are a great organisation to provide the training.”
The Great British Cookbook will take you on an unforgettable journey through 200 of the UK’s most prestigious pubs, guest houses, hotels, AA Rosette and Michelin Star restaurants showcasing 200 of the UK’s finest chefs who have created 200 culinary masterpieces using locally sourced produce; for you to cook with your family and friends in your home. If all this wasn’t enough the cookbook is your very own road map of exceptional places to eat.
