As well as teaching a real life skill the Essential Skills Course is valued by a considerable number of ski chalet operators and other companies offering gap year and vacation employment with which Tante Marie has excellent links.
The course also counts as a qualifying activity for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and for the International Baccalaureate which an increasing number of schools are now offering as an alternative to A-levels.
Skills covered include the preparation of sauces, soups, eggs, pasta dishes, seafood, meat and roasts, poultry, vegetables, salads, canapés, desserts, pastries, cakes, biscuits, bread and ice creams.
As well as taking some of their creations home, students are encouraged to demonstrate their new skills to their families at home as the course progresses. The students are not examined but receive a certificate of attendance at the end of their course.
As with all our courses, there are no “extras”. Everything is included in the course fee: tuition, ingredients, and the students’ own special Tante Marie chef’s knives and knife wallet, recipe file and apron.
