Gap Year Chefs

Celebrated Gap Year Chefs Training Courses In South Africa

There is almost no culinary institute in this world that can open doors as much as the Prue Leith Chefs Academy. This is understandable too, considering that the Academy’s patron is Prue Leith OBE, one of the world’s most celebrated culinary connoisseurs. The Prue Leith Chefs Academy is regularly praised as South Africa’s leading chefs training institution, and as it goes from strength to strength, their chefs are continuously and exclusively sought after within the hospitality world. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if you came across adverts in the job classified section entitled “Prue Leith graduates only”. Therefore, it would be in your best interest to apply for a gap year chefs training course if you wish to experience culinary excellence.

It can be said that in order to be the best, you need to learn from the best, and that is exactly what the Prue Leith Chefs Academy is offering you. The course is divided into four curriculums, namely: Cold Kitchen, Hot Kitchen, Pastry Kitchen and Service. Each curriculum is unique in its design, and you will learn specific skills and knowledge that were all developed by the celebrated and honoured Prue Leith OBE. For gap year chefs the part-time Diploma will be available from 2010, where you can enjoy what each individual curriculum has to offer, however, if you were to become a Prue Leith chef you will have to enrol for the Grande Diploma in Culinary Studies and Wine that covers everything as well as all four the curriculums. In addition, our chefs are provided with only the finest quality ingredients from around the world. This includes Italian truffles, Belgian couverture chocolates, Scandinavian salmon, Iranian caviar, French frog’s legs and foie gras.

Another ingredient that forms part of the success of Prue Leith Chefs Academy is the training facilities. Gap year chefs are trained in the fully equipped demonstration kitchen under the ever-watchful eyes of Prue Leith’s highly skilled professional chefs. These culinary masters-in-training are also given the opportunity to hone their skills at the fine dining restaurant which is located on site and has been ranked as one of the top 100 restaurants in South Africa.
