Police stormed Le Cordon Bleu cookery school in Marylebone yesterday evening following a stand off with a knife wielding student threatening to kill himself unless he was allowed to retake the intermediate course exam he had failed. The distressed chef, who’d apparently spent all of his savings on the internationally renowned course, ultimately had to be tasered by riot police after 4 hours of attempted negotiations.
- As a reader of Decanter.com points out, he must be a terrible chef to have failed that exam and “totally burnt… or dropped” his dish
The 28 year old chef was taken to hospital but was reportedly unharmed by the taser stun. That’s one helluva bad day by anyone’s standards.
