Cook / Chef

Cooks are real experts in pleasure. The core of their tasks is the preparation of dishes and menus. To do this, they learn all the important working techniques and interesting facts about food - from meat and fish to plant-based cuisine and desserts. This solid basis enables the next generation to have a professional future in a wide variety of businesses: From guesthouses to business hotels, from large kitchens to star restaurants or even on a cruise ship. Cooking is both a craft and an art.

But cooking is by no means the end of the story, chefs are the professionals for all processes and planning in the kitchen and around it: purchasing, storage, menu preparation are all part of it. They organise the kitchen and work together with the service staff. They always keep an eye on quality and guests' wishes.
