So before we start I would like to tell you how the Name Cordon Bleu steeped in history came about.
I do not know about you but I always find it interesting to find out the history of recipes that I make, don't you?
Let us first examine the name:the term “cordon bleu” it refers to a special order of French knights. Literally, cordon bleu translates to “blue ribbon.” Henry III of France in 1578 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).
Louis Gonzaga,Duke of Never was the first to receive the order.
All members had to be at least 35 years old and Roman Catholic, these knights then called Les Cordon Bleus.
Hence we get the name Cordon Bleu.
So how did it relate to food?
After every ceremonies these Knights had with highly respected guests, there were huge sumptuous feasts held in their honour 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.
