Our apprentices – Creative Cup 2018


The Mandala Hotel regulary offers trainings for all their apprentices, so they can successfully start their professional lives.

The Creative Cup is an annual youth championship for chefs, restaurant and hotel professionals. The young talents of the 2nd and 3rd year can show what they have learned in their training companies and at school. The championship is not only an optimal preparation for the final exam, but also an excellent preparation for the Achenbach Prize for cooks and the German Youth Championship, as well as the Bitburger Cup for the service professionals.

This year we sent three trainees of hotel management into the race. - Ms. Charlotte von Keller, Ms. Lisa-Marie Malchow and Mr. Sergejs Kitajevs. Together with our training manager, they learned a lot about drinks and meals, as well as service and hygiene. Of course, we offer these classes to all of our apprentices at The Mandala Hotel. Therefore, we initiated The Mandala Academy, which is especially designed for our young talents. We give all of our career starters the opportunity to learn as much as possible, because we want to encourage our talents and that's what we do!

In order to even get the chance to participate in the Creative Cup, our talents had to prove their skills in a first round. They had to take a theoretical examination about:

  • Identification of goods
  • Recognition of work equipment
  • Theoretical examination (answering questions about foods and beverages)
