With over 20 years experience of lovingly hosting ski chalets in the French Alps we run a comprehensive Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award RESIDENTIAL course in Chalet Hosting and Cookery. We are an Approved Activity Provider (AAP) and we are licensed by the DofE Award.  We run the courses either at our Ski Chalet in the French Alps or our Dorset Based Coastal Cottage. You will not only receive expert tuition in cookery, but you'll learn valuable transferable life skills! Our courses are a winning combination with small numbers and our lovely friendly, fun and highly qualified tutors. Book your place now... The course is ideal for your DofE GOLD RESIDENTIAL section, with participants aged between 16 and 19.  We are an Approved Activity Provider for the Duke of Edinburgh Award, and we will act as your assessor during your stay, submitting a report to your eDofE page upon completion of the course.  Numbers are limited to a maximum of 10 students per course.

We also run an online Cookery Course for the Skills section of the Bronze and Silver Award.










​We are into health, good nutrition and fitness and love to share our lives in the mountains with the guests and students who visit.


We've been working at Chalet Pomet in the French Alps for six years.  We manage the catered ski chalet in Winter and the cookery school in Summer.
