How much does training at Villa Blanka cost?

The school/tuition fees go up to €170.00 and the materials fees for Kitchen Management and Service Studies, including lunch, are €150.00 (combined this makes €320.00/per month, nine times per academic year). In practice that means you get a fantastic, freshly-cooked lunch every day and your parents don’t have to give you any pocket money for food. Also, the food ingredients used in practical sessions are covered by the materials fees. And then you get top-quality training on top of that.
