Having a Le Cordon Bleu affiliated culinary school in Austin (Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Austin) has completely changed the playing field for me in terms of my expectations for entry level employees. All of these men and women come well grounded in the basics, and with a serious desire to succeed in the industry. I am happy to count a number of them as productive members of my kitchen team.
