I have good memories of my time at the ENSP. My chef was tough but a really good teacher. Totally implicated in his work and concerned about us as people. The staff was really helpful, if we had to go to the Dr., they were there for us. They accompanied us through the whole visa process, including taking us to the medical exam 2 hours away. Yes, sometimes things happen in the kitchen, running out of hot water etc, but this also happened during my internship and work. Just part of life..... Yes, taking the shortcut to school can be muddy, but you can always walk on the road... I learned to speak French, learned a new trade and experienced a new culture. I am happy. I would do it again at the ENSP. My chef prepared me very well for my new career !!
