In the thick of it

There have been a few blogs going on lately about attending Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. My Google alert for the book kindly informed me of another one. If you’re interested in following someone going through the intensive Basic cuisine course, take a look at this one. She’s still in the first week. Today she went on the French market tour with the chef, which she found a bit disappointing as she spends a lot of time at farmer’s markets in various countries. But as she rightly points out, they don’t offer pigs testicles in your typical market in the U.S., not to mention their snouts, tails, ears and the tongues, brains, sweetbreads and massive livers from our friend, the cow.

The school offers “intensive” courses twice a year that allow students to complete the 10-week Basic or Intermediate Cuisine blocks in five or six weeks. I have posted more information about going to Le Cordon Bleu in Paris on the blog here. Take a look at the postings under Le Cordon Bleu to the right.

  1. Hi Kathleen,
    I also have completed the Intense Basic Cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris this past Nov/Dec 2010 session. I blogged my experience at http://www.talesfrommyplate.wordpress.com. I read your book before hand and all in all it was a fantastic experience. I hope some of your readers enjoy my tales. Cheers – Audrey
