    I just finished my red seal a month ago. Now I find myself at a stand still doing the same mondane job at work. 

    I'm interested in doing what I think is called contract work.  21 days on 21 days off or 4 weeks on 2 weeks off  type of work. 

    I would be very well suited for large scale cooking. use to cook for a buffet, 200 to 400 people,  did that 1 1/2 year. 

    I don't mind being at a remote place to work.  

    I just dont know the names of these companies, plus I'd want one of those companies that fly you there and fly you out.  

    I live in canada, plus I don't drive a car.

    would be interested in talking with someone that as done this kind of work. 

    so if anyone could help me , give a good direction.   thanks.

    not sure about remote companies but most of those are covered by bigger companies with local contracts or corporate extensions.. maybe checking with vacation lodges and seeing who they contract with or checking out Alaska cruises and see what the hiring process is.
