Gap Year Chef Courses

Our gap year chef courses cover both the practical and theoretical sides of working in a top restaurant. All students are given only the finest of ingredients to experiment with in order to expose them to a range of high quality international tastes and textures such as Iranian caviar, French frog’s legs and Italian truffles. Our cooking curriculum is based on the classical French method and includes an in-depth finance module which teaches our students the importance of the various aspects involved in kitchen management such as effective stock management, menu costings and how to calculate profit percentages. We are also the only school in the country where this module is delivered by professional Chartered Accountants.

Students at the academy are given the opportunity to practice their newly acquired skills in our onsite, fully equipped demonstration kitchen which is also home to our restaurant, Prue Leith’s. Voted as one of the top one hundred restaurants in the country, it is our students who, under the watchful eyes of our expert chefs, prepare the meals for our guests.
