Looking for a job as a chalet cook?
In what was once a disused pub in the heart of the Surrey Hills, The Abinger Cookery School was founded by a small team of culinary enthusiasts with a wealth of experience and a passion for all thing’s foodie. They aim to fire up your imagination with courses that are practical, inspired and of course – fun and believe in utilising the best produce that Britain has to offer and most ingredients are sourced from fantastic suppliers, right on their doorstep.
They offer a 5-day Ski Chalet Cooking Course which is ideal for school-leavers wanting to do a ski or summer season, or for students heading off to University. This course is a great way of giving confidence to any young person who will be living away from home.
The intensive syllabus aims to give students a thorough overview of working and cooking in a chalet, incorporating basic to intermediate cookery training, knife skills, menu planning, sourcing ingredients, budgeting, time management, meal service, time management and an overall general view of life in the Alps. The courses are practical, hands-on and fun!
Students will come away with an armoury of skills, a folder of tried and tested recipes and a ‘Chalet Bible’ written in association with our friends at “Fish & Pips”. With the Abinger’s many affiliations the ski industry they are perfectly placed to help graduates of their courses look for and apply for winter season chalet positions.
Their ski chalet cooking courses run throughout the year and students are offered accommodation while also cooking their breakfast, lunch and supper.
