One chef, 7 days, guaranteed interview

Mon May 14, 2018

Love cooking but lack experience or confidence? Nervous about the up-coming season? Or just interested to improve your cooking skills so you can impress your friends? Read on…

Our Head Chef from Hotel Montjola, Joachim Richards, is excited to share his wealth of knowledge and passion for cooking with those looking to train as a chalet host this summer

Joachim, also known as Joe, started his career as a chef 10 years ago. Since then, he has worked in a range of restaurants, including a prestigious Michelin star establishment. His love of food and determination to provide outstanding hospitality lead him to direct a successful business offering high-end catering for weddings, corporate functions, festivals and events. We were thrilled when he accepted the job with us in St Anton this winter.

Our chalet host cookery course

Joe is delighted to be a part of the training team this summer and will be leading our Chalet Host cookery courses on 23 & 30 June. The course covers all aspects of life as a chalet host, in a real chalet environment.

The course is delivered in the Alpine resort of Morzine. Based in one of our luxury chalets (with a hot tub!) it provides the perfect learning environment; you’ll be cooking in a chalet kitchen, at altitude, and with similar hours to that expected of you in a chalet host role.

Guaranteed interview

All participants of the course will be offered the opportunity to interview for a chalet host role with us for the 2018/19 winter season.

How much?

Alongside Joe, the course is delivered by experienced chalet hosts offering you their knowledge and guidance in a relaxed environment and with a maximum of 8 participants in any one session. It is designed to encourage you to interact, ask lots of questions and learn, not just about cooking but also life in general as a chalet host. 

£645 per person in a shared twin room
