Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts-Chicago Top Questions

Describe your favorite campus traditions.


The school which I attend is most likely known for the culinary institute which is housed there. Washburne Culinary Institute is the oldest culinary program in the country beginning in 1937. Many of Chicago's leading restauranteurs and chef instructors have graduated from this elite program. It is home to two great restaurants in Chicago - the Parrot Cage which is located at the Southshore Cultural Center and Golf Course (formally the Southshore Country Club) and Sikia located on 63rd and Halstead. The later restaurant is inspired by African and Caribean cuisine.
