Although a vocational school diploma is not a priority, it goes without saying that candidates must have previous experience in the field of gastronomy and hospitality and ambition and a desire to progress. The evaluation criterion will primarily be talent, followed by the relevance of experience and previous education and motivation. The Chef’s Stage gastronomic offer foundation is intended to finance the education of young gastronomic and catering talents at renowned culinary institutes such as the Basque Culinary Center, Cordon Bleu, Ferrandi in Paris or Intreccio in Italy. The holder of the Michelin star, the Croatian caterer Rudolf Štefan, founded the Budi Foodie Foundation with the aim of providing better education to young people in cooperation with the company Coca-Cola HBC Croatia. To apply, you need to fill out a form with personal information, attach a motivation letter and a letter of recommendation and, if desired, motivational video material. The following documents are posted on the page: http://chefsstage.com/budi-foodie-chefstage/ to 15.02.2019, and the winners will be announced on 19.03.2019. at the Chef’s Stage congress in Šibenik. From 18.01.2018. to 15.02.2019. a competition is held in which candidates aged 16 to 26 have the opportunity to win specialist training in world culinary institutions. It is important to note that the type of education and the institute are chosen on a personalized basis in order to best suit the characteristics of the candidate.
