Are you planning a career as a Chalet Chef? Or going to do a ski season as a chalet chef? We run comprehensive, hands-on Chalet Chef courses across 7 exciting, action-packed days.

We run Chalet Chef courses across 7 highly intensive days, packing in the content that some schools take 2-weeks to cover. We have chosen to create long days with a high tempo to reduce the time and cost of training for participants. We work in small groups with a minimum of 1 teacher per 6 students.

Our teaching is based on rigorous, classic technique. We equip our budding chalet chefs with professional building blocks vital for embarking on a ski season and cooking for discerning guests, for whom the food in their chalet is an important part of the skiing holiday. Whether you embark on this for a gap year or as part of a career, we will give you the necessary skills.

  • Time management and menu planning
  • Key chef and cooking skills
  • Relevant 7-day menus including starters, main courses and desserts for adults and children
  • Nutrition and special diet options
  • Food presentation
  • Budgeting
  • Table-setting, napkin folding and table service

The testimonials we receive reflect the fact that we believe in high quality training in small groups. As a small school, we’re able to offer participants a personal and tailored experience, ensuring that each and every budding chef comes away with the skills they require:

“Thanks so much for everything – I had an absolutely fantastic week, met some wonderful people, and gained half a stone (with no regret whatsoever) on absolutely gorgeous food which I had mostly produced myself. Your team could not have been nicer, expecting us to grasp things quickly but always happy to go back over things if required. The range of dishes we covered was thorough, comprehensive and all very cookable.”
