LE CORDON BLEU ALUMNI JADE BOWSER BRINGS MAGIC TO THE HOLIDAYS AS DISNEY PASTRY CHEF

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. (Oct. 14, 2010) – As the holiday season approaches, Chef Jade Bowser and her pastry team are preparing to create a life-sized gingerbread house that will be displayed throughout the winter in the lobby of the Walt Disney World Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in Orlando, a 12-year tradition. Bowser credits the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts (LCB) in Miami for providing her the necessary skills to succeed as both a chef and a career-changer.
"I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to pursue a new career in pastry art," said Bowser, who is currently a pastry cook at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa in Miami. "Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts was a great platform to reinforce this realization."
After losing her job as an office manager, Bowser took the opportunity to pursue her lifelong passion – baking. She enrolled in the pâtisserie and baking program at LCB in Miami and graduated in 2009.
"We are excited to honor Chef Jade Bowser's numerous accomplishments," said Kirk T. Bachmann, vice president of academics at Le Cordon Bleu. "With Bowser's talent and drive to succeed, we are pleased to know that her training at Le Cordon Bleu helped put her on that path."
Bowser was attracted to LCB for its global reputation as a leader in French culinary techniques. She says her instructors served as important examples as strong mentors and leaders.
"Without their training, I never would have become as successful as I am now," says Bowser, who expects to spend at least 400 hours baking more than 10,000 pieces of gingerbread before the opening.
Bowser was named a distinguished alumnus in the new Alumni Achievement series at LCB. The Alumni Achievement series recognizes success stories of Le Cordon Bleu alumni from the 17 LCB schools across the country. Bowser was chosen to represent LCB in Miami because she embodies the school's standard of excellence.
Offering an innovative culinary education with a local focus and a global perspective, LCB students master techniques and build a strong culinary foundation that puts them on the path to a creative career. The chef instructors from LCB bring real-world culinary experience and diverse backgrounds to the classroom.
