Why choose the Italian cooking school Cordon Bleu?

Why choose the Italian cooking school Cordon Bleu?

Whether long or based on one single workshop, no prior knowledge is required for these courses.

The Italian cooking school Cordon Bleu has a network of professional chef teachers dedicated to providing the highest level of culinary instruction, and taking participants on a memorable taste experience, in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

These courses can be taught in English and French.

Who is the course for?

These courses are ideal for food enthusiasts, for chefs, foreigners and whoever wants to feel more confident in specific cooking areas.

For the love of the cooking arts

Amateur courses are aimed at those who love cooking and wish to improve their skills in the preparation of traditional Italian dishes: fresh pasta, first course dishes (pasta, risotto, soups), second course dishes (meat and fish), yeast doughs, ice-cream, as well as ethnic cuisine and pastry arts.

The courses are a fun and constructive introduction to the culinary world, and a first step towards a potential future profession.

They are great for those that already have a basic self taught level of competence in the home kitchen, for foreigners and for cooks wishing to enhance a specific area.

All of this thanks to a professional and hospitable staff of ourItalian cooking schoollocated in the unique and attractive location of Palazzo Panciatichi Ximenes.

Ready for a new start!

Cooking has the power to bring that which seems distance near and to make us travel with the senses. During this difficult moment our school has never stopped, we have activated online lessons for those who want to refine some techniques or just want a little bit of Italy. As we come out of this nightmare we are close to all those who are still living difficult situations and hope to cheer up our past and future students with our proposals, confident that we will meet again soon in our school kitchens.
