Professional Certificate in Gastronomy

I have to share my excitement with you!

I have received a letter of offer to study gastronomy at a post-graduate level this year!

It is a 6 month course, and I have elected to study online, so I can continue working.

Le Cordon Bleu, in collaboration with the University of Adelaide are offering this very exciting graduate program to students, and now I am one of them!

I have to pinch myself 🙂 This is the realization of a long-held dream of mine. To study food within it’s sociological, anthroplogical and historical contexts, and to go on and apply this knowledge is just such a gift.

I was very fortunate to be awarded a part scholarship for the Professional Certificate. University study in Australia is expensive, so this was an honour and a relief 😉 The scholarship was a joint award from Le Cordon Bleu and Sumptuous magazine, and “winning” that was thrills enough! To be offered a place in the course is enough to make me cry a little bit…

It’s going to be a challenge. I haven’t been at university for over 10 years, and my writing skills are a bit rubbish… sweetrosie has certainly helped in that department, but there’s still a loooong way to go.

Happy days! Wish me well!
