Le Cordon Bleu Melbourne

Le Cordon Bleu has launched a new Culinary Arts Institute in Melbourne.

The purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities at the Holmesglen Moorabbin campus will provide the highest level of culinary and hospitality education.

The new Melbourne location joins Sydney and Adelaide to expand one of Australia’s leading culinary arts institutes.

Applications are now being accepted for a range of Cuisine and Pâtisserie courses, including the prestigious Grand Diplôme, presenting Australian and international students with a unique opportunity to learn renowned and revered French techniques in Australia’s forward-thinking culinary capital.

Le Cordon Bleu’s Grand Diplôme qualification is recognised as a badge of excellence throughout the culinary world. Only after successfully completing the basic, intermediate and superior certificates for both Cuisine and Pâtisserie, and a practical industry placement, can students achieve the coveted Grand Diplôme.

Celebrating the launch, President of Le Cordon Bleu, André Cointreau, said: “We have a long tradition in providing excellence in teaching the classics of cuisine, but now with a presence in more than 20 countries around the world, our culinary teaching reflects the internationalisation of culinary development around the world today.

“In this context we are very happy to be opening a new Le Cordon Bleu School in Melbourne, which is regarded as a leader in culinary and gastronomy excellence in Australia,” he said.

Le Cordon Bleu retains only the most highly-experienced and qualified staff whose many years of leadership in the hospitality industry reflect a deep understanding of the challenges faced with a career in this exciting industry.

Le Cordon Bleu Australia COO, Derrick Casey, said: “The new Le Cordon Bleu School in Melbourne will provide a continuing stream of highly motivated and qualified professional staff for this ever growing and developing industry in Australia.”

Partnering with Holmesglen in Melbourne is another very exciting announcement with Suzanne McKinnon, Dean of the Faculty of Education, Service Skills and Environment declaring, “Holmesglen is very excited to welcome Le Cordon Bleu to our Moorabbin campus… this is a unique opportunity for Holmesglen to facilitate the delivery of world class qualifications by Le Cordon Bleu to Victoria”.
