From Novice To Cook In One Month
Leading UK cook school, the Edinburgh New Town Cookery School (ENTCS) is running a one month summer course during August, ideal for school leavers to develop skills and techniques suitable for jobs during holidays. Whether it is for the gap year or to work in ski chalets, shooting lodges or luxury yachts, the course takes students to a high level in only one month.
As a cook school which has seen former students from its longer courses enter leading kitchens such as Fat Duck at Bray, Ottolenghi and Chez Roux, the Edinburgh New Town Cookery School's courses are highly sought after. The one month course offers a useful way to combine a love of quality cooking with a route to financial independence.
As well as a range of essential cooking skills, the course includes the REHIS Basic Food Hygiene Certificate and modules covering nutrition, choosing and storing produce, menu planning, budgeting and costing and very useful advice on finding a job at the end.
ENTCS was founded by Fiona Burrell, formerly Principal of Leith's School of Food and Wine. She began her career in Edinburgh and has been teaching professional cookery courses for thirty years.
Fiona is 'hands-on' and is ably supported by a highly-motivated team.
The one month course runs from Monday 28 July to Friday 22 August 2014 and a few places remain.
