You will be given a three week, five course menu, including vegetarian options, with detailed recipes and time plans. Also advice on catering for special diets and food allergies (coeliac, diabetes etc). We will show you short cuts and pass on valuable tips of the trade, teaching you how to handle disasters and equip you for coping with the unexpected problems you may come across while cooking at altitude (exploding cakes being the most memorable one!).
Our cookery course is intensive, enabling you to get the most out of your time at The Orchards. In the evening we have a dinner party, each course cooked by two students giving everyone the opportunity to practise as a chalet host (don’t panic, lots of personal tuition and encouragement makes the whole experience surprisingly easy and enjoyable).
We supply you with a the Orchards Cookery book and a detailed Chalet Cook’s guide containing all the information you could possibly want to know about working in a chalet. We don’t believe in note taking, it’s boring and you might miss something! We also provide you with a Chalet Cook's goodie bag to take with you, containing all sorts of essential time saving pieces of equipment.
We will also educate you on wines, basic food hygiene and health and safety to add more strings to your bow.
