Electrolux and Le Cordon Bleu, the leading global network of culinary art and hospitality managements, announce today a long-term partnership focused on shaping the world’s cooking habits for the better through education and innovation.
The collaboration will reach for excellence in the kitchen using Le Cordon Bleu culinary techniques and a wide range of Electrolux appliances. The mission is to inspire all – whether professionals or food enthusiasts – to better taste experiences by providing excellent cooking techniques and an understanding of how to use appliances to get the best results. Combining the culinary creativity and know-how of professional chefs with state-of-the-art cooking technology will enable a better culinary journey for everyone.
The two main areas of the collaboration are education and research & development. Through a vibrant and international agenda of events, fairs and content, foodies and culinary lovers, from chefs to home cooks, will gain access to an exclusive culinary journey. More about this will be disclosed in autumn 2018. Electrolux and Le Cordon Bleu will also work to develop co-created appliances for better taste and quality within culinary creations. The first launches as a result of the partnership are expected in 2020.

With a collaboration that spans all of our respective operations, we believe we can affect some real hands-on change for better taste and sustainable cooking around the world, while including local flavours and ingredients,” says Ola Nilsson, Executive Vice President at Electrolux.
