We have always been first and foremost focused on providing individuals with a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the USA. We know that has been hard this year and so do the wonderful hoteliers that we work with.
We are working with some beautiful locations in the USA to offer sponsored and subsidised culinary training programs in the USA so that every budding culinarian can start their Yummy Story.
By sponsored, we mean that for the right, passionate candidate the property will pay for your program fee (yes, that includes visa sponsorship) and this will be deducted from your weekly pay so that don't need to find the upfront cost of going on a program. You would pay the initial $1,000.00 deposit and the rest will be payroll deducted.
