Hi guys: My name is Joseph and I am from Taiwan. I have been longing to study Italian cuisine and to intern in restaurants in Italy. I googled on websites and I found 2 institutes that I am interested in. One is Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners(ICIF) and the other is International Academy of Italian Cuisine in Lucca. They both have a 2-months lessons in school and then a 4-months internship in local restaurants. Has any one ever been to one of these institutes? Or anyone has opinions about these institutes? Though I prefer International Academy of Italian Cuisine in Lucca cause it's much cheaper, but anu information will help, thank you!
