    Professional Chef
    Well to start off, Im a 21 year old Chef from Aus. Have all my certificates etc and have been working in Restuarants since i was 15. About 3 months ago i decided i need a bit of adventure, i wanted to get out there an really see what everyone else is doing all over the world, and gain as much knowledge as i can to open a Restaurant of my own in later years. (approx when im 29) So ive been cleared for my visa to work in the Uk for two years, while im there i want to learn french and later work in france for a period of time. I leave here on the 5th of August. Any of the senior chefs have some advice? any info would be great. Thanks in advance.

    You have the cooking and back of house experience, now get the business savy . Negotiating skills, some  accounting, learn labor laws, some finance.insurance understanding, leases etc.
