11 years promoting the chefs of tomorrow.

Le Cordon Bleu Madrid celebrated the first edition of the Promesses Award in 2012 and since then, every year, it supports the work and educational effort of gastronomy schools across the country and rewards their most outstanding students.

A clear example was the case of the chef who won the first edition of the Promises Award, Cristóbal Muñoz, who two months ago received double recognition of the highest level: 2023 Young Chef Award from the Michelin Guide, in addition to obtain the green distinction from the guide and renew the Michelin star of the restaurant he runs, Ambivium (Peñafiel, Valladolid).

In the same vein, in 2022, Rafael de Bedoya de Jerez, winner of the fourth edition of the Promises Award, obtained his first Michelin star for the restaurant Aleia (Barcelona), which he runs with chef Paulo Airaudo.

The Promises of Haute Cuisine award is aimed at young people up to the age of 25 who are in their final year of training at any Spanish cooking school. These 11 years of holding the competition have been possible thanks to the support of the schools which encourage their most brilliant students to participate in order to continue their training. In addition, the validation plan launched in 2017 allows all students with an advanced degree in kitchen management to access the intermediate levels of the programs.
