Chef School

The Capital Hotel School – To Be the Best, You Have to Study with the Best 

Are you someone who is passionate about learning more about the hospitality and culinary arts industry, but at a loss for what to study, or even where to study? If you’re a “foodie” with a flair for baking cakes like Buddy Valastro, mastering beef like Gordon Ramsey, and experimenting with sweet and savoury gourmet dishes like Nigella, then why don’t you follow your passion and put yourself on the path to becoming a highly sought-after world-class chef?

The Life of a Chef

This is a profession that has been glamorised by the rise of reality cooking shows. The kitchen has become attractive and exciting again. However, from the outside looking in, being a chef seems like a pretty sweet job, right? From developing and testing new and inventive recipes, and sampling some of the world’s finest ingredients and sweets, to earning a world-class reputation – there is much to love about being a chef.

But, being a chef is not all about pork and veal, the perfect roasted potato, gourmet lemon cod, fondant, crêpes, and crème brûlée. Make no mistake about it – life in a commercial kitchen can be frantic, chaotic, and extremely stressful. Even though you’re getting paid to do something you absolutely love, being a chef is a demanding and challenging job that only those who are truly passionate about food and have the right training will survive and thrive in.

Your Career Prospects are Limitless

While being a chef is a tough, challenging, and demanding job, it’s also extremely rewarding. Not only do you get paid well to do something that you’re absolutely passionate about, but you also get the freedom to create your own recipes, as well as work anywhere around the world as a chef. While being a chef is a brilliant career for those who truly have a love affair with food, if you want to be the best, you need to enrol in the best chef school.
