Based in The Old Granary on the outskirts of Milton Keynes, Mountain Chefs specialise in providing Chalet Chef Cookery Courses. Our open-plan kitchens provide the perfect learning environment for students to master the skills required to be a sucessful Seasonaire.

Mountain Chefs Instructors are professional Chef's who are fully versed in Chalet Cookery. Their style is approachable, professional and fun – always getting the best out of each student and allowing them to develop at their own pace.

Working along side our Instructors we will support each student with CV preparation, interview skills and menu planning.  We partner with many chalet companies and work closely with them in recommending students for Seasonaire roles.
