“Le Cordon Bleu is dedicated to offering the highest level of support and development for our staff,” said Edward Leonard, CMC, vice president and corporate executive chef of Le Cordon Bleu. “The program will help our staff master their craft and demonstrate their vast industry experience and credentials to our students.”
Interested LCB employees must meet all Career Education Corporation and ACF requirements and be nominated by their campus president and executive chef to participate. The program includes assessments tailored to reflect the judging and scoring process of the CMC exam. Participants in the program also receive 12 to 15 months of direct mentoring and support from Leonard. Ferdinand Metz, CMC, LCB executive dean and chairman of the LCB National Advisory Board, along with other Certified Master Chefs, will advise and assist during the training. Leonard and Metz are two of only 72 CMCs nationwide.
