That is a good point. I am starting my stage today and I chose to keep my restaurant and chef confidential. My friends think I am being a snob for doing this, but I didn't think it was appropriate to disclose the information.
I have read a few blogs from culinary students, and when it came time for their stage/apprenticeship, they chose not to disclose any information on their restaurant or chef out of respect. I have also read blogs were the stagiaire is not shy about who they're working for. What are everyone's opinions on this?
