Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts Institute Vies for Prestigious Award


OTTAWA — Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa Culinary Arts Institute (LCB) is one of six schools vying for the title of North America’s Best Culinary Training Institution. Over 126 years, LCB has evolved from a small Parisian cookery school to become the leading Global Network of Culinary Arts Institutes providing education excellence and training within the industry.

Today, 20,000 students of more than 100 different nationalities are trained in more than 35 schools in around 20 countries every year with Ottawa being home to LCB’s only campus in Canada. LCB offers a wide range of culinary arts, wine, management, boulangerie and hospitality programmes. Voting will take place on the World Culinary Awards website until the end of August, with the winner announced shortly thereafter.

“We consider ourselves the guardians of French culinary techniques, preserving centuries-old practices, and to have our efforts recognized with this nomination proves that excellence endures the ages,” says Yannick Anton, executive chef of Signatures Restaurant and cuisine instructor at LCB Ottawa.

“Our students talk about the family-like learning environment and the benefits of interacting and studying with classmates from different parts of the world,” says Yann Le Coz, head pastry chef instructor at LCB Ottawa. “And since the methodology is similar across all LCB campuses, a Le Cordon Bleu qualification is truly a global certification.”
