About Le Cordon Bleu
Few institutions possess the prestige of Le Cordon Bleu. Its internationally renowned culinary arts curriculum has become synonymous with expertise, innovation, tradition, and refinement-qualities meticulously nurtured by the school.

Le Cordon Bleu was founded as a cooking school in Paris in 1895. Its name traces to a high honor bestowed upon members of the Order of the Holy Spirit by King Henry III in the 1500s.

The awarded medallion, called the Cross of the Holy Spirit, was suspended from a blue ribbon, or Le Cordon Bleu.

At the end of the 19th century, a collection of recipes called "La Cuisinière Cordon Bleu" was published to much acclaim. The book's success prompted its publisher to open a cooking school with the Cordon Bleu designation.

The school's reputation spread fast, both in France and internationally. Since then, culinary school students throughout the world have trained in the culinary arts at Le Cordon Bleu.

Le Cordon Bleu's arrival in the United States ushered in a new educational era in culinary arts that combines classical European techniques with modern American technology and training.

As a testament to their accomplishment, Boston, Massachusetts culinary school graduates receive a specialized associate degree and the coveted Le Cordon Bleu Diplôme.
