Chalet Catering Courses at In The Kitchen
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take to the ski slopes on a professional basis? If so, there’s more to life on the piste than the obvious ski instructor route suggests, as many successful chefs (including In the Kitchen head honcho Peter Testo) will testify. Now Peter is keen to share his experience catering for chalets in resorts across the world courtesy of his Chalet Catering Course, which offers a realistic view of how to run (and work in) a chalet kitchen and offers a City and Guilds level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene Certificate on completion.
Peter’s Chalet Cookery Course is perfect for those looking to work in a resort over the ski/summer seasons, but is equally appealing to folk wishing to build their CV or merely improve their confidence and cookery skills in general. The intensive 5-day course covers topics including menu planning, budgeting, cooking and knife skills, dealing with specific dietary requirements, serving wine, table laying, chalet etiquette (yes indeed!), plus practice in preparing and cooking breakfast, afternoon tea, canapés and 3-course meals. It may sound like a packed schedule to manage, but Peter promises that, once this course is undertaken, participants who take the experience away with them will still be able to find time to build up maximum slope time and season enjoyment as well as gaining all the necessary skills needed to be confident cooking gourmet meals for clients or family and friends.
The In the Kitchen Chalet Cookery Course runs for 5 days (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) and costs £550 per person. A £150 deposit is required to secure a space on the course, and start dates in the pipeline for this season are as follows: September 18, October 2, October 23 and November 6 – slalom over to the In The Kitchen website for more information and to make that all-important booking.Categorised in: News
