“Hautes Etudes du Goût” or HEG as we fondly call it is more than just a study program; it’s an experience of a lifetime! I’m a die-hard food lover and I’m always attracted to food and culture from different parts of the world. As a hospitality professional, I’m very curious about quality, service and information in the field of gastronomy. That said it was only natural for me to apply for this program.

HEG opens doors to unexpected and unthinkable subjects ranging from something that is very new like “Note by Note” cuisine to something that is more specialized like neurophysiology of taste and bubble dynamics in champagne! This program brought together some of the best academics from France’s most prestigious universities and research organizations under one roof to share their knowledge and experience.

Each day was different and we had some incredible food experience. A dinner based on medieval cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu School in Paris to a sophisticated Michelin experience at Le Crayeres, Reims; gave us the opportunity to think how food has changed over the years. This program showcased France’s exceptional and world-renowned cuisine. The highlight of the 2015 course was the cultural mix of people coming from 13 different nations, each sharing their own thoughts and ideas.

In just a few days we became a close knit family of gastronomes! I can’t wait to see my friends and relive the memories once again. HEG has provided me with a launch-pad and has undoubtedly broadened my vision in the world of taste, gastronomy and fine dining.

From the bubbly mind of Herve This to the science behind the bubbles in champagne, within the Le Cordon Bleu HEG diploma you will find favourite topics and conversations. You will also develop new favourites from subjects that you previously knew little of.  The course is varied and intense. Come with an open mind and your senses will leave rewarded with knowledge far beyond any other educational program.

The Haute Etudes du Gout Diploma was my final unit of the Master of Gastronomy and Tourism program with Le Cordon Bleu and Southern Cross University in Australia. This is two weeks of excellent French content about numerous topics of gastronomy, not only from expert lecturers and professors but also passionate educators who want to share their information. This information often includes decades of study into topics and is delivered to the students in a cultured format.
Added to the education of the program is the sharing of authentic French food among likeminded colleagues. Education and themed dinners, bistro lunches,  wine matching and champagne tasting at various temperatures in beautiful champagne houses. What is not to love about this style of education..?

This was my first visit to Paris and Reims and I truly encourage all of my Masters colleagues – and anyone passionate about gastronomy - to complete this program.
