Laurence Volondat Dupuis (France) - 2012 student

“ The Hautes Etudes de Goût” , this surprising title caught my eye when I was clicking through the Cordon Bleu website. But what was behind it?

Quite simple to summarize actually – just an amazing experience!

A comprehensive approach to the theme of taste, gastronomy and table arts with top-quality multidisciplinary teaching to a disconcerting level.

A sustained pace over the period of 2 weeks with rewarding cultural encounters (both with the other students and with the teachers) and culinary experiences. We are literally plunged into the Middle Ages with the medieval dinner at the Ferrandi School; and that magical moment with the champagne dinner in the cellars at Veuve Cliquot, or that unique tasting of Chateau Yquem 2009 married with an exceptional dessert at the restaurant Les Crayères in Rheims.

I realize every day how lucky I was to be part of the 2012 class; this experience will definitely be a turning point in my career change into the universe of taste and gastronomy.
