    Welcome Ramjan. Not the best one to ask, but if you can get a job at Noma then perhaps you should take it. Chef Lagom has a substantial operation on the West coast somewhere but that's a big move also maybe.

    Hi Ramjam. Just so happens that I am currently looking for a key, experienced person to head up a kitchen in the city of Göteborg. My guy there has accepted a position in Switzerland and is leaving in mid November. I am talking to candidates now about the position if you're interested. Swedish language not required.

    Also, look at the Arbetsformedling websight, better yet book an appointment and go meet a job coachbin person. They can set up interviews, help with your cv, and may even be able to offset part of your salary for a potential employer.

    Pm me if you want.

    Have you gotten the "All Powerful " personal number yet? Welcome to the land of unmovable rock head pencil pushers. Seriously, once you have that and your ID things flow much easier. What is your residence permit like? Are you EU citizen?

    @lagom, yes I know, but "just one town over" as they say. ;-)

    Ramjan, I don't actually know chef Redzepi from a hole in the wall, and if I were in the business I'd jump at the chance to work for chef Lagom.

    Thank you Rick. Can't wait to visit Boston again, it's been years( well the 80's) but I got many a blurry memories from China town and the combat zone.

    @lagom can you explain what a "personal number" is? That is a new concept to me here in the states.

    It's kinda like a social security number. Your date of birth plus a 4 digit number after. Once you have one issued by the tax agency here then you can pretty much do anything. Ie get a bank account, apply for an apartment, collect pay, drivers license, doctor appointment. Without it you are a person non grata here.
