Dark side of Tōtsuki Training Camp

The dark side of the camp from Yuki's perspective.

The Training Camp, which is the first hurdle that all Tōtsuki Students must go through, takes place several weeks into their first year. Students are sent to Tōtsuki Resort where they spend five days training there. The camp is supervised by some of the school instructors such as Roland Chapelle and the manager of the Resort: Gin Dōjima. The camp invites some of the Tōtsuki Academy Alumni to participate in the camp as instructors. Most Alumni come to the camp in order to recruit potential workers for their restaurants. During the camp, students are treated like employees by the Alumni. If a student does not meet an Alumnus' expectations or fails to complete a given task, the said Alumnus is authorized to expel that student from the academy. In previous years, as much as half of a generation are expelled by the end of this event.


  • Specialized Classes - Each Alumnus constructs a classroom of their own and tasks the students to complete a certain objective such as cooking a dish of their own with a theme or cook a signature dish of that Alumnus. Students participate in up to two specialized classes a day.
  • Dinner Preparation - The Tōtsuki students are required to prepare dinner for the Resort guests. Students must also cook their own meals during the camp.
  • Breakfast Challenge - On the third night, the students are required to choose or create a recipe to cook for the Resort Guests the following morning. A theme is decided as a basis for the dish they must create. Students are required to cook and serve no less than 200 dishes to the hotel guests.
  • Banquet - Students who complete the camp are treated to a lavish banquet prepared by the Alumni and Hotel Staff.
