The academy launches on the 14 July and will have seven UK Malmaison chefs teaching there. Each trainee will undertake a year long training programme covering four main kitchen sections; larder, vegetables, sauce and pastry. Trainees will also spend a few days at Malmaison Liverpool for coaching from Malmaison chef director John Woodward.
After completing the course of training the young chefs will have gained a recognised industry qualification from HIT training. Malmaison and HIT are also currently working together to start a national apprentice campaign to attract young chefs to the academy.
Malmaison’s director of People and Development Lindsay Southward commented: “We are extremely excited to have launched this campaign as part of Malmaison’s ethos is the fantastic food offering. This is a great opportunity to help nurture and develop young talent.”
