Hi, Ive been researching for a while and some people say "Culinary school is a waste of money" others say "Go to culinary school". Just to give you a bit about my background: I have a MSc in a none food related subject, have been playing with the idea of switching to become a chef (because of my passion). In 2016/2017 I tried to contact some restaurants in Italy to see if it was possible to get a work for free internship or similar, but none approved. I have been cooking for the most of my life. Age 26. What kind of food: - Italy (preferred) - French Culinary school, I have considered: - The University of Gastronomic Sciences - Or FUA Apicius in Florence - The obvious Le Cordon (But have read lots of bas reviews from this, and based on the $$$$ fee) What do I want? Find a mentor who know his/her shit and become a good chef. Does anyone have any advice on what to do, who to contact or similar? Probably a no-brainer, but I do not expect advice such as "Contact Gordon Ramsay" etc.
