The world famous school of the culinary arts Le Cordon Bleu is set to open its first outpost in Saudi Arabia.
According to a Saudi Gazette report, the Paris-based organization has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the Quality of Life Program Centre and MENA Company for Education and Development.
There was no date given for when it is expected to open, with the Saudi Gazette saying it would open “soon”, but it will join more than 35 Le Cordon Bleu Institutes in 20 countries around the world and be opened in cooperation with the Culinary Arts Authority in the Kingdom.
Providing educational programs for the culinary arts is one of the Vision 2030 initiatives that the Quality of Life Program is aiming to implement, and introducing the school founded back in 1895 in Paris is a huge coup.
It’s not the first time Le Cordon Bleu has collaborated with Saudi Arabia, with 30 men and women from the Kingdom sent to the school in Paris to study last year and expected to graduate by the end of 2020.
