Hello everyone!!! I am still working on finding a decent school in Europe which offers a comprehensive course material within a limited budget. The International Program of Italian Cuisine at Alma scuola internazionale di cucina offers the following: The programs lasts 7 months and it is structured as below: - A 2-month in-school phase in ALMA headquarters in Colorno, Parma, Italy, with classes from 09,30 am to 6,30 pm with compulsory attendance and 1- hour lunch break in ALMA restaurant - A 5-month traineeship in a restaurant or hotel structure in Italy - A 2-day final exam I like the fact that they promise 5 months traineeship despite the brief 2 months school session. I would like to know if anyone had any experience attending this institute and could vouch for this program. school website: http://www.alma.scuolacucina.it/ Thank you in advance.
