A first in Kazakhstan!
Le Cordon Bleu will be in Kazakhstan, for the first time in its history, to promote French gastronomy. This follows an invitation from His Excellency Mr Jean-Charles Berthonnet, French Ambassador to Kazakhstan, the Almaty branch of the Alliance Française and a number of other prestigious participants including Askar Askarbekov who launched the first “Tous au Restaurant” festival of gastronomy.
Kazakhstan, thanks to its size and potential for economic growth, is an important country in Central Asia.
Le Cordon Bleu London Chef Instructor, Eric Bédiat, will give master classes from July 4th to 14th 2013 to Chefs from prestigious hotels such as the Ramada Plaza with Chef Lyazat Nurtaeva in Astana and the Royal Tulip in Almaty with Chef Klara Aldesha.
Two Le Cordon Bleu alumni who are of Kazakhstan nationality will be assisting Chef Bédiat: Anton Novotochin (Le Cordon Bleu Paris Grand Diploma) and Aigerim Saldorova (Le Cordon Bleu Wine and Management graduate).
Chef Bédiat and Chef Yana Lykova will be responsible for a dinner which will take place on 4th July at the Gentlemen’s Quality Club in Almaty. The menu will include a salmon ballotine, lamb, and chocolate tart.
On July 9th, Chef Nicolas Lesur, who has been working in Kazakhstan for a number of years, will welcome the Alliance française for a presentation and press conference at the French Connection restaurant, the only French restaurant in Kazakhstan. This will be followed by a master class for Alliance française members.
On the 14th July, Bastille Day, Chef Bédiat will prepare a classic French menu at the Hôtel Ramada Plaza in Astana for a dinner to be given by the French Ambassador. Coq au vin and beef stew in red wine, with bacon, onions, and mushrooms will be served!
French culinary art will therefore be represented as it is taught in Le Cordon Bleu schools throughout the world.
