Le Cordon Bleu London is to host a series of workshops for primary school children in a bid to inspire the next generation of chefs.

The renowned culinary school has teamed up with St. Alban’s Primary & Nursery School in Camden as part of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts’ Adopt a School Programme.

The scheme aims to teach children about the provenance of food and its impact on the environment.

Le Cordon Bleu’s Master Chefs will teach students classical food preparation techniques and about the importance of healthy eating.

“We welcome thousands of students around the world each year, and so many of them tell us that cooking and food have been a lifelong passion of theirs,” says Master Chef Emil Minev, culinary arts director at Le Cordon Bleu London.

“Being able to introduce children to the exciting world of food at a young age is the best way to begin educating the next generation of chefs and restaurateurs.”

The first Le Cordon Bleu cookery school opened in Paris in 1895, followed by a London outpost in 1931.

There are now more than 40 Le Cordon Bleu schools in over 20 countries worldwide, which train over 20,000 students in culinary skills and hospitality management each year.
