The Hive Cookery School

One and Two Week Chalet Cookery Courses in the French Alps

Established by experienced Alpine seasonniares, The Hive Cookery School run courses from a typical Alpine chalet in the charming village of Plan Peisey, near Les Arcs in the French Alps. Courses run throughout July, August, September and October.

The curriculum on our courses doesn't just cover cookery, but all the skills you'll need to run a chalet efficiently and confidently throughout a season.  We'll teach you how to make beds, clean windows, chop wood, lay fires, plan menus, write shopping lists and so much more.

You'll be cooking each and every day of your course, preparing three-course meals, canapés, children's food and learning about dietary requirements. There's a lot to pack in, but each afternoon you'll have an hour or two free to enjoy a walk in the mountains or to relax in the cosy chalet. On your day or afternoon off, we can arrange any number of activities, from white water rafting and mountain biking, to horse riding and hiking.

Here at The Hive, we work closely with many reputable ski Tour Operators to help them recruit their chalet hosts for the season.  We will show you how to tailor your CV and applications for winter jobs, to help ensure you get invited for interview with our partner Tour Operators and others.  Some companies visit students on site whilst courses are running to carry out interviews.

Your experience at The Hive will certainly maximise your chances of success at securing that all-important job!

Come and talk to us at the Natives Jobs Fair this June and find out more about how we can help you to realise your dream of ‘doing a season’.

We’ll be offering 10% off all courses booked on the day!
