Outstanding Value!

In 2013 we launched our Workaseason cookery course, aimed at encouraging and training potential Chalet Staff so that they can get the most from their season. For 2014 the course sold out in record time. We are now taking bookings for the 2015 cookery course, running weekly from the 11th May - 30th October 2015.


Our course is by far the most intensive skills based cookery course available. You will learn all the skills you need to be a successful Chalet Host. The workaseason cookery course prepares you for the job more than some other commercial courses available in the UK. So before booking a more expensive course, talk to us. The workaseason course is the only cookery course that guarantees a job for the winter season with Inghams, Esprit or Ski Total.


Our course offers:

  • Training in kitchen management, knife skills and food awareness
  • Theory modules and guidance in catering for specialist diets
  • Timekeeping and time management skills  
  • Qualified and specialist chef trainer
  • Practical training in food hygiene awareness
  • Food Hygiene training
  • A good grounding for a future career in catering
  • The skills you need to cook for your own chalet
  • A guaranteed position with Inghams, Esprit or Ski Total for all course participants who pass the end of course assessment.


The cost of the Cookery Course is £560 per person. This includes:
  • All instruction at our purpose build kitchen at the Head Office in Godalming
  • All lunches and four 3 course evening meals
  • Food Hygiene Level 2 Certificate (City & Guilds)
  • 5 days tuition
  • Cookery Course Recipe Book
  • Cookery Course T-shirts
