In keeping with its commitment to connect students with industry leaders, more than 75 students will have the opportunity to use their culinary skills throughout the competition and interact with professional chefs and competition teams, allowing them to get a firsthand look at the latest industry trends and gain hands-on experience outside the classroom.

Le Cordon Bleu students will assist in a variety of positions throughout the weekend, including serving as sous chefs to competitors and creating mouthwatering dishes for the Ultimate Bacon Experience – an event that will have attendees sizzling throughout the weekend as they enjoy original culinary creations featuring this trendy ingredient.
