The day we were all looking forward to – graduation.
The intensive cuisine and patisserie students had our graduation ceremony together where we received our basic certificates and our grades. It was a simple affair. The chefs presented us with our certificates and that was it. Right after, we were treated with Le Cordon Bleu standard hors d’oeuvres and champagne (or water for me).
The best team – Franz, Nadia, Serçan and I. With Chef Cotte, of course!
I think I did pretty well, especially for the theory exam. I was just a couple of marks away from 100%. Ya know, typical Singaporean student! Haha! I also did better than I expected for the final practical exam.
I’ve got my basic certificate, which means I have two more levels to go before I get my diploma. I have no idea when I will be continuing with the intermediate level, nor any idea where. For now, it’s back to work, back to worrying about money and my business. It kinda sucks but at least I get to see my family and friends again.
Thank you to all the lovely friends I’ve met at Le Cordon Bleu. You know who you are! I hope we stay in touch and get to meet each other again sometime, somewhere.
Thank you to all my friends and family back home who were so supportive the whole time, and for not thinking I’m stupid for doing this.
But before I come back home, it’s time to finally take a break! Scotland, here I come! 😛
One thought on “Le Cordon Bleu Paris – Graduation”
I’m loving your blog (followed!) but I would also like to invite you to submit a short piece to my own. I think your perspective and style of writing would be a perfect piece for my project.
It’d also be a great way to get your blog/writing out there.
Please feel free to email me (jennifer@youngandtwenty) with more questions, or take a look at the ‘BEING Young & Twenty’ page on my blog.
I hope I’ll hear from you 🙂
