CHIC Welcomes FENI

With gracious hospitality, passion for culinary education and a chance and desire to show what the LeCordon Bleu North America is about, CHIC faculty and staff welcomed FENI attendees from all over the US. Several classes were held in both the South and North Campuses, some full hands- on Master classes, some demo only, and truthfully, quite a few more interesting than the others. Some classes were lacking in content and organization, but overall it was four days of learning, sharing, getting to know colleagues from every culinary school imaginable. Here are some pictures:

Cooking and Hospitality Istitute of Chicago SupportsFor the Love Of Chocolate-Chicago

CHIC faculty and students created a sweet table, participated in the fashion show and entered in the Student Chocolate Wedding Cake Competition in the French Pastry School sponsored "For the Love of Chocolate" to benefit C-CAP.
The students' wedding cakes were in strict adherence of rules that included specific height and girth measurements, and at least 50% chocolate. To top it all off, students used tempered chocolate for the entire chocolate with scratch-made chocolate rolled fondant. We think they all did a wonderful job, considering they are in an intensive cohort requiring them to be at school most of the day for their regular classes.
