To all the readers of the Cheftalk BLOG from ICIF:
Dear Mr. Vasilij,
we would like to reply regarding your comment about our Institute ICIF because despite your pseudonym we have found your real name.
In the specific case of the ICIF Short Course, in which was interested Mr. Vasilij, the training offered is organized in 3 weeks of theoretical and practical lessons at School as a complete overview of the Italian Culinary, from appetizers to desserts, including also pastry and bakery lessons, wine tasting and food and wine pairing lessons.
Regarding the experience of Mr. Vasilij, who chose to attend only one week included in the standard program of the ICIF Short Course that has a total duration of 3 weeks, the starting date of this course has been postponed of one week, because as we are an International Culinary School for foreigners, our students to participate to our Courses have to obtain a visa for study at the Italian Consulates or Embassies abroad, and on that occasion there was a delay in the issue of such visas, so the postponing of the starting date of the Course was not up to ICIF, and Mr. Vasilij was informed in advance of this.
During the first day of the ICIF Short Course of total duration of 3 weeks, it is required by the law (as well as for the ICIF Master Course and as happens in all the Schools in the world), a meeting for the presentation of the Course and the rules of the School, the information regarding the workplace safety, the regulations on fire prevention, the delivery of the complete Chef uniform, the checking of the documents required from the Police Headquarters to apply for the Italian permit of stay for the foreign students, all these are mandatory practice required from the Italian law to allow foreign students attend a Course in Italy, perhaps Mr. Vasilij is not informed about the regulations governing the training Schools in the world.
In the week of attendance of the program chosen by Mr. Vasilij, the only moments when he appeared in classroom, having regard to his coming and going at pleasure, he showed a completely disrespectful attitude towards the Institute, the teachers and also to the classmates: hands in his pocket, without socks and always wore flip-flops in the kitchen laboratories!
This is the demonstration of the professionalism of Mr. Vasilij who claims to be a business man and owner of restaurants chains!
Before judging the curriculum of a course maybe is necessary attend it, to the complete Course not to just a week! Since 1991 the ICIF Institute has graduated students coming from every country in the world with great results, confirmed by the success of the former ICIF students currently Chef and owners of renowned Italian restaurants in their own Country and with International reputation.
