NEW - Cordon Bleu for Adults 18 + (In-Person) - NEW

National Chicken Cordon Bleu Day is annually observed on April 4.  This day is all about a special dish combining chicken, ham and cheese.  The French term for Cordon Bleu is translated as "Blue Ribbon".  The earliest recipe know was in a March 1964 printing of the Cincinnati Enquirer by the Cincinnati Gourmet Stanley Demos.  Despite some misconceptions, Chicken Cordon Bleu is an American dish.  This dish is a take on the popular Veal Cordon Bleu.  Tonight you'll sample my version of this classic along with side dishes fit to go along with this winner!  You'll sample...

  • Chicken Cordon Bleu with Dijon Cream Sauce
  • Duchess Potatoes
  • Asparagus with Classic Hollandaise Sauce
