Working in partnership with Leeds City College (LCC), IN 2019 LHVA introduced its first ever Chef’s Academy putting ten Commis Chef’s through their paces during a six-week training programme, with each session focusing on a key culinary skill.

Turning their hands to butchery, preparing fish, international cooking, artisan bread and petit fours, the Chef’s newly refined skills culminated in a 4-course dinner. The dinner took place on Wednesday 5th June at LCC Printworks Campus and saw friends, family and colleagues attend. The evening concluded with a short presentation and each Chef was gifted their own set of knives courtesy of Nisbets Catering Supplies.

After the huge success of the first LHVA Chef’s Academy, we announced the second cohort beginning on Wednesday 2nd October 2019. Now in its second year, the third cohort aimed at Senior CDP’s / Sous Chef’s begins on Wednesday 26th February 2020.
