Learning to cook has never been so easy..

In 2013 we launched our workaseason.com cookery course, aimed at encouraging and training potential Chalet Staff so that they can gain the most from their season. In 2015 our courses sold out in record time so we are now taking bookings for our 2016 cookery courses, running weekly from the 23rd May - 30th October 2016.

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
  • A good grounding for a future career in catering
  • The skills you need to cook and run your own chalet

The course is located at our Head Office in Surrey. Hotelplan Ltd, Mountain House, Station Road, Godalming, Surrey GU7 1EX.
The Cookery Course is led by Mark Vinall (our Catering Recruitment Manager who has over 20 years of high end catering experience) and is taught by some of our most senior chefs from overseas. They are specifically chosen for their experience working overseas in both our Chalets and Chalet Hotels. The workaseason catering team are here to help you to gain the knowledge and confidence you will need to have a successful course and winter season.
All those who successfully pass the course assessments will be offered a position with the company. Whilst the majority of candidates will proceed to Chalet Host roles, the assessors will only offer positions at a level which they feel the candidate can comfortably complete the role.
