The Swiss Army Knife of cooking courses, preparing you for a job on the slopes.
Being able to poach an egg is one thing but juggling management of a chalet, catering for paying guests and managing after that party in Rudi’s bar is quite another. BREATHE.
We will arm you with a repertoire of dishes that will cater for all tastes and throw your guests in to a satisfied stupor. Veggie, Vegan, Kids or Dentures, no problem. And, since it’s all about you spending as much time as possible on the slopes and not in the kitchen, we will give you all the insider tips to turn your chalet into a sparkling jewel in no time and keep your boss happy.
UPDATE: All the skills and nowhere to go? We will help you polish your CV, develop your interview technique and get you in front of several of the leading UK ski companies who visit during the course to give you tips on the opportunities out there.
Great news - the Wyld Cookery School is an Approved Activity Provider for the Residential section for the Gold DofE award. (You only need to stay for one of the two weeks to qualify!)
