The Chalet Host Cooking Course is aimed at students wishing to complete a ski season (or yacht season) as a chalet host. The course has been tailored specifically to help those needing to gain the required skills to work in a Chalet or in other hosting jobs, covering all aspects including; hosting skills, budgeting, shopping, menu planning and chalet cleaning.
Provided you have reached the required Avenue standard, ‘The Avenue Chalet Host Cooking Course Certificate’ is awarded and we will assist you in finding a job. We have excellent links with many companies in the ski industry, which means we are aware of their changing requirements with regards to employment. This also enables us to help you through the recruitment process, which we do by giving helpful interview training tips and practice as well as checking over your CV. Additionally, we will ensure that you can provide a full planned and prepared sample menu plan for your season.
The two-week Chalet Host Cooking Course prepares you in the most professional, effective and thorough way to ensure that you have confidence in the kitchen and therefore can complete your job in the mountains to the best of your ability. The best route to a ski season in the mountains, is to achieve an Avenue Chalet Host Cooking Course Certificate!
Several of the chefs at The Avenue have completed their own ski seasons and therefore they are very familiar with the demands of the job as well as the fabulous opportunities to be gained on the slopes!
Many ski companies now require you to have completed you Food Safety Level 2, which we include, as well as a book – or as we call it The Avenue Chalet Host Bible certificate – in order to help you when you are working in your chalet!
If you have already covered the basics of cooking you can join our 1 week Intermediate Cookery Course to just spruce up your already obtained skills.
