Could you, please, recommend any global/European or British forum or networking group/association for professional chefs? What are the popular networking sites or how can I get connected to the chef's community? Your advice is highly appreciated. Thank you!
Global and United Kingdom Forum/Association for professional chefs
There are two to choose from, the first is probably the best "Craft Guild of Chef's" any chef can join from student upwards although you can only get master craftsman and fellow if you can prove yourself.
The other is Master chef's of Great Britain, not to be confused with the prats on TV
Perhaps a longer procedure, but have you tried using Twitter?
If you follow students for the majority, I would assume it is likely to email you with more students as suggestions and recommend more on their website too. Basic social media knowledge required but should have a decent turn out - a surprising amount of chefs/general chef relations use the site. Hope that helps!
