There is an art to being a great Chalet Cook. We will show you how to master it, enabling you to get the most out of both your job and life in the mountains. With many seasons of experience in the chalet industry and working alongside ski companies we have designed a course to train the perfect chalet host. Designed specifically for ski season Chalet Cooks, the course will boost your confidence, develop your culinary skills and knowledge of cooking and give you the ability and inspiration to create your own masterpieces in the kitchen. We will show you short cuts and pass on valuable tips of the trade, teach you how to handle disasters and equip you to cope with the unexpected problems you may come across while cooking at altitude (exploding cakes being the most memorable one!).
Our courses are intensive but great fun, with dinner parties in the evenings enabling students to get the most out of their time at The Orchards. In addition to the cookery course, during break times students have the opportunity to: receive personal help and advice with CV writing; have interview training; attend ski company presentations and interviews; take the Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering; have a tour of the kitchen garden to see how some of the fruits, vegetables and herbs used in the cookery school are grown and harvested; learn quick ways to deal with a brace of pheasants (during the shooting season only). Students can also burn off a few calories in the gym or by playing volley ball, football, croquet, badminton etc. in the garden. We recommend the two week course to Gap Year students wishing to do a ski season (if time and money permits). for more information and dates please visit: www.orchardscookery.co.uk
