Greetings to all fellow home cooking chefs here on the East Coast of Africa and around this beautiful world we live in.
Before we start, just for fun, I would like to tell you how the name Cordon Bleu, came about.
It refers to a special order of French Knights and translates to "Blue Ribbon".
In 1578 Henry III of Franch established the tradition of the highest order of knighthood bearing a blue ribbon. France created the L'Ordre des Chevaliers du Saint Esprit (Order of the knights of the Holy Spirit),
All members had to be at least 35 years old and Roman Catholic, these knights were then called Les Cordon Bleus, hence the name Cordon Bleu.
So how did it relate to food, you ask?
After every ceremony these Knights , with highly respected guests, had huge sumptuous feasts held in their honor that became legendary. It is believed the name of the knights then became synonymous with the food prepared for their events. Over time, it became a symbol of prestigious quality.
I hope you found the above interesting.
