Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

I would advise them to give it a go - it doesn’t mean you have to work there long term. You must know how to speak a language other than your mother tongue reasonably well, as a good proficiency is essential. It’s also important to know and understand the cultural diversity that makes up the European Union.

Our internships are a great chance to come for a short period to determine where your interests lie and taste the experiences. Starting out your career path with the EU gives you a really good foundation of insider knowledge of how the EU works and is so useful professionally, even if you don’t plan on working there forever.

It is also important for young Irish people to consider moving to countries that are not English speaking and working for the EU would be very useful to your long term career.

Professional Three Month Cookery Course

COURSE STARTS MONDAY 11th SEPTEMBER 2017

It has been well documented in the media that there is a critical shortage of chefs in Ireland, to the detriment of reputable restaurants and cafes nationwide. If you think a culinary future might be for you, our Professional Three Month Certificate course will help open up a world of different food careers!

The Three Month Certificate cookery course at Dublin Cookery School is widely recognised as a credible and practical route to acquiring the expertise and skills needed to pursue a career in the food industry.  It revolves around facilitating your learning with daily cooking demonstrations so that you are always clear on what you are aiming to achieve. But the real learning takes place in the kitchens where, with a chef at your elbow, you will learn how to taste, develop your technique, improvise and to present your finished dish creatively. It is this level of individual attention that ensures students’ particular needs are met.

This cookery course attracts a wide mix of people and abilities from a range of backgrounds from Ireland and abroad, which makes for a friendly and collaborative learning environment. Each day, you’ll be working with the best fresh local produce in state-of-the-art kitchen facilities, helped every step of the way by a team of inspirational, enthusiastic and patient tutors.

Strong industry connections allow Dublin Cookery School to organise stage’ placements’ for students at some of Dublin’s best restaurants, giving them invaluable experience of what it’s like to work in a professional kitchen environment under the guidance of some of Ireland’s most talented chefs. Previous ‘stage’ placements have included the likes of Chapter One, Delahunt, One Pico, Forest Avenue, Bastible, Forest & Marcy, Etto, Restaurant Forty One, The Pig’s Ear, Dax and MacNean House & Restaurant.

As well as a large amount on hands-on cooking, the course also includes breadmaking, field trips, foraging, food styling, wine certification, HACCP certification (valid for 5 years) and business talks.

The career possibilities in this industry are endless; employment in a professional restaurant kitchen, opening a food business such as an independent café, catering enterprise, food truck or farmer’s market stall, food styling, cooking on superyachts or in ski chalets, food journalism, blogging - the opportunities are endless.  As the artisan food sector continues to grow at pace, this course provides you with the inspiration and skill set to develop viable food business ideas.

Should you wish to pursue a career in the food industry, this course will provide you with an excellent foundation on which to build a culinary career for yourself.
