At the Hofmann School of Hostelry we have created a carefully designed training plan to enhance the talent of up and coming chefs, which provides all the necessary knowledge to become highly qualified professionals. Learning begins with basic cuisine knowledge and getting to learn the various techniques in order to promote creativity and individual talent.

The main characteristic of the Hofmann training method is the large number of practical hours that we offer (75% of the total teaching hours). The concept of "Pedagogical Restaurant" is clearly seenat Hofmann. The combination of theory and practice sessions is specially designed to provide students with the tools that allow them to operate as high-level professionals, regardless of the specialty they choose. In addition, another characteristic of our training model is the opportunity offered to the student to be in contact and handle food and produce of the highest quality.

Our methodology is based on a combination of:

  • Theory classes that take place in the school classrooms (they can be online if required by the situation). The classes are interactive and the student participates actively in the activities and exercises proposed. They are always related and reinforce the aspects learned in the restaurant.
  • Master classes: demonstration sessions in which the professional chef makes various dishes while explaining the different culinary techniques used, the characteristics of the ingredients and suggests alternatives and tips. Those are carried out at the Hofmann school (they can be online if required by the situation). The school collaborates with highly recognized professional specialists in their field.
