How To Be A it all began

The pilot

Back in 2017, the pioneering people at Bristol24/7 approached us to ask whether we’d help them run a training programme for young chefs. We jumped at the chance - and How To Be A Chef was born. Over three days of workshops, hands-on learning and 1:1 mentoring from professional chefs, the young chefs were ready to cook a four-course meal for over 100 invited guests at the Bristol24/7 Autumn Feast.

The 12-week course

Fast forward to September 2018 and Square Food launches its expanded programme. How To Be A Chef is now a twelve week course that includes a Btec, a Level 2 Food Hygiene qualification, work experience placements at food businesses across the city, field trips to farms and producers and comprehensive hands-on cooking instruction from SFF experienced teachers. Watch our film to see who took part in the programme and how it went.

What’s next?

The next How To Be A Chef starts in April 2019!
