    I am trying to find out what European certifications exist for culinary or culinary/hospitality professionals (e.g., a European equivalent of the AFC). I am interested in a supra-European accreditation, not in one that exists at any particular country level. The only thing I am aware of is of course the Cordon Bleu and its various Diplomes and certificates. CAN ANYONE HELP?

    I am also interested in corresponding with culinary professionals in Europe, particularly if they are American transplants and/or have very strong business (e.g., MBA-type) backgrounds.

    Hoping to hear soon!

    I know of MOF (Meilleur Ouvrier de France) and HAAC certifications. HAAC is in Germany and MOF in France (I think)
