    What is a Stage? | The Chef Network Stage Listing

    So stages has been a part of cheffing since day one. Stages are short periods of work experience that chefs spend in another chef’s kitchen and it’s kind of traditionally been a big part of the way that chefs train. It’s all about experience. It’s all about networking as well. You’ve learned a lot cooking-wise but it’s also learning how to operate a kitchen. But what the Chef Network are hoping to do is to open that right up into chefs that are already in their careers. No matter how qualified or what you are doing, there’s an opening and an opportunity for you to go and learn or experience…

    7 Life Skills Your School Forgot to Teach You

And I’ve ended up graduating and working in a firm that works in Native Title. It’s…
