The Chef Foundation Course is a 4-day preliminary training course that gives students with no prior culinary experience an opportunity to prepare themselves to a level where they are fully confident in the kitchen. This short course is an intense induction programme that teaches students everything they need to know about preparing themselves to work in a cooking environment. We focus on training students to manage themselves in the kitchen including knife skills, classic recipes, and cooking techniques.
This course is highly practical and students are put through an intense and rigorous programme to prepare them for working independently in any kitchen. Each student is assessed to their skill level during the first few hours of the course, after which the tutor assists them in preparing for the practical days ahead.
This course is also a requirement for students entering the 10-day Superyacht Culinary course who have no prior culinary training.
