Our Chalet Cookery School

Our alpine chalet cookery course is operated and run in La Plagne 1800, high enough so you can practise your cake making skills properly!

The chalet has wonderful views, a good space for the course to run and lots of outdoor space. It’s also run as a catered chalet in the winter by our parent company, Skibug.

We will show you everything from table laying to budgeting and food preparation, covering all aspects of running an efficient chalet cooking 3-4 course dishes every single day.

How does it work?

Our course is structured around a real chalet routine to maximise learning. There’s loads of cooking time as we cook with our students every single day.

What’s better is that you will eat everything you make, from scrumptious afternoon cakes to mouth watering evening canapés.

We are one of the few Chalet Cookery Schools to provide you with a Food and Hygiene Certificate LEVEL 2 on the completion of our courses.

There’s also some free time to take in an activity like white water rafting on the Isere river at the foot of the mountains.
