Culinary arts and hospitality management institutes network Le Cordon Bleu and global appliance company Electrolux have announced a long-term partnership, focused on shaping the world’s cooking habits for the better through education and innovation.
The collaboration will reach for excellence in the kitchen using Le Cordon Bleu culinary techniques and a wide range of Electrolux appliances. The mission is to inspire all – whether professionals or food enthusiasts – to better taste experiences by providing excellent cooking techniques and an understanding of how to use appliances to get the best results.
The two main areas of the collaboration are education and research & development. Through an international agenda of events, fairs and content, foodies and culinary lovers, from chefs to home cooks, will gain access to an exclusive culinary journey, the companies say. Electrolux and Le Cordon Bleu will also work to develop co-created appliances for better taste and quality within culinary creations. The first launches as a result of the partnership are expected in 2020.
Electrolux executive vice president Ola Nilsson commented: “Le Cordon Bleu is known for culinary excellence worldwide. With a collaboration that spans all of our respective operations, we believe we can affect some real hands-on change for better taste and sustainable cooking around the world, while including local flavours and ingredients.”

When we combine their modern technology with our culinary creativity and know-how, the possibilities seem endless.
