    Hello, I'm a spanish culinary student in Lyon (France).

    I'm studing a l'Institut Paul Bocuse and I'm in my second (and final) year of education.

    I come from Madrid (Spain) and I've moved to Lyon for a year now.

    Sorry for my English, I keep watching movies and listening to musci to improve it!!

    My name is Luis Alonso.

    I was searching for some recipes and Í found the forums... Lucky for me!! This is a great comunity and I've learned some things since I have been "lurking" here, not that I'm doing it anymore... :cool:

    My life "à la Bocuse": well, the institut is very well equiped and I think we are very well prepared to enter the "real world". Furthermore, we make some training period each year (4 months) in real restaurants--> I've done it at Lameloise, a 3 stars restautant, and I think this is one of the greatest advantages of being "a l'ecole", cause we can choose our own training-restaurants.

    My future: I love the kitchens world, but I'm almost sure that a day I will want to move a little bit and leave the kitchens for a work involved with marketing, management... So I've planned to finish my year here, do my second training period for 4 months, go to the USA and work for a big hotel like four seasons or someting like that in the marketing, management or food and beberage department. Or maybe make a management school in the USA. Indeed, do you know a management school in the washington-boston area with a "one year" program in management???

    Thanks in advance!

    Luis

    Luis,


    Lameloise is indeed an impressive restaurant/hotel to do your apprenticeship.

    You must tell us more in the cooking forums about your experience there, maybe outline a typical day.

    If your looking for a management program in Hotel/Restaurant training look into Johnson & Wales in Providence Rhode Island. There are a number of us here on cheftalk who graduated from J&W and will stand behinds it's curriculum.

    To study in Lyon and apprentice in Burgundy must be a wonderful experience for you.

    PS, Here is a link to J&W
