About the Holiday

French for "blue ribbon", "Cordon Bleu" was initially known as the ribbon of honor given for the highest order of chivalry under the House of Bourbon, an important European monarchy from the 15th to 18th centuries. The term finally evolved to the culinary arts after it appeared in a French cookbook in the 1800s; and the blue ribbon award is still bestowed upon chefs there. Cordon Bleu is now, however, more commonly known as a chicken dish, which typically is a chicken breast stuffed with ham and cheese. So, whether you want to honor the blue ribbon of chivalry, culinary arts or just enjoy a good dinner, National Cordon Bleu Day gives you that opportunity.
