Hello everybody. I wanted to ask if anybody has experience in moving to a country other than your own to cook/apprentice for a period of time? I'm a 27 year old line-cook with 6+ years of experience. I never attended culinary school so my "connections" in the industry are little to none. I'm really interested in going to France(or perhaps england, italy or spain) and cooking around for a good chunk of time. I'm aware of the language constraints and am willing to study a language extensively before traveling there. Anyway, I guess my main questions are how does someone with no direct connection to a chef/restaurant in another country set-up an extended stage or live/work exchange and what other complications might I have to deal with? I'm pretty committed to the idea, am willing to work hard to make the best of any opportunity that may come my way. Thanks a lot and I appreciate any responses.
