National Cordon Bleu Day

Five Food Finds about Cordon Bleu

  • The phrase “Cordon Bleu” means “Blue Ribbon” when referring to the dish.
  • Another use of the phrase “Cordon Bleu” comes from a distinguished order of sixteenth-century French knights, who apparently wore blue sashes and were therefore popularly referred to as the “Cordon-bleus.”
  • Cordon Bleu is a thinly pounded piece of meat (most often chicken, but also veal or pork) stuffed with ham and cheese, then breaded and fried.
  • Chicken Cordon Bleu is a relatively recent American creation, first found mentioned in the written word in 1967.
  • Common variations on this recipe include baking instead of frying, skipping the breading, and switching the order of the meats.
