    Hello, I'm wondering if anyone's been to Dublin Cookery School and can share your experience? Based on what I've read and researched, it's a pretty good school with a comprehensive syllabus, but my concern is on the certificate and it's applicability or recognition outside of Ireland.

    A little bit about myself so that there is context: I'll be moving to Italy with my husband and hence would want to look for a school within Europe for networking purposes and for closer access to each other. I'm a mid-career switcher and have been working in the kitchen for 3 months now (and going) to ascertain my interest for the industry. I want to head to culinary school to get me up to speed on the basics and for that reason I do not want to specialise in a particular cuisine at the moment. At the same time, I do not want to spend too long and too much on studying and hence have been looking for a short course (3-6 months) to obtain a certificate/diploma in culinary.

    The Dublin Cookery School seems like a perfect fit, but my only concern is if the Professional Cookery Course certificate would help me secure a job in a kitchen in Italy when I move there. Any other recommendations for schools in Europe is also welcomed.

    Thanks!

    I just went to a cooking school in Ukraine 6 weeks long and around $500 was a great course also at the end you take a test through one of the universities and get a certification from the state not just a diploma from the school. Might not be the same level as some of the longer programs but it was very good. The instructor also speaks English and worked in Italy for several years and may be able to help you work in Italy depending where you are.

    Wow, that sounds interesting, i've never heard of cooking schools for $500! May I know what's the school and how your experience was like? 6 weeks seem quite short for a professional certification so I would just like to know more.
