History of Le Cordon Bleu
Few institutions of any kind possess the prestigious reputation of Le Cordon Bleu. This internationally renowned school for the culinary arts has become synonymous with expertise, innovation, tradition, and refinement – qualities that are meticulously nurtured by the school.
The name "Cordon Bleu" [meaning Blue Ribbon] is rich with history and heritage. It has been synonymous with excellence since 1578, when King Henry III created the "L'Ordre des Chevaliers du Saint Esprit" [The Order of the Holy Spirit]. It was the most exclusive order in France until 1789. Because the members, royalty included, were awarded with the Cross of the Holy Spirit, which hung from a blue ribbon, they were called "Cordon Bleus". The sumptuous banquets which accompanied their award ceremonies became legendary.
