Glenn Carver, Epicurean CEO, wrote the book So you'd like to make money Chefing, Book 1 of the series: Welcome to your journey from culinary school to becoming an Empire Building Chef! , the must read book for aspiring chefs and entrepreneurs in the culinary world. His son, Glenn Carver II, wrote Stand in the Heat, Lessons from Legendary Intrepreneurs on Staying cool Under Presure, the survival guide for entrepreneurs. Both books are in the left column.
In Anthony Bourdain's New York Times best selling book, Medium Raw. Anthony answers a question about campus culinary schools with the following:
"I am frequently asked by aspiring chefs, dreamers young and old, attracted by the lure of slowly melting shallots and caramelizing pork belly, or delusions of Food Network stardom, if they should go to culinary school. I usually give a long, thoughful, and qualified answer. But the short answer is "no". Two paragraphs later, he adds: "Don't get me wrong. I'm not telling you that culinary school is a bad thing. It surely is not."
On the next page he adds, "You're about to take on $40,000 to $60,000 in debt, training for an industry where--if you are lucky--you will, for the first few years, be making $10 to $12 an hour." Buy Medium Raw and read the whole book; it's an excellent followup to his mega-hit, Kitchen Confidential.
Epicurean is designed for culinary students who don't have the time or money to attend a campus culinary school and heavy debt is not an issue at Epicurean. The required training to place a student in a position as a culinary intern is eight courses with a total tuition cost of less than a thousand dollars and some or all of the cost can be earned through Epicurean's referral system.

INTERNATIONAL PLACEMENT FOR INTERNSHIPS
Many international students prefer to come to the US to do their culinary internships. Each case is individual, but a common way international students come to the US is to come as a small group. For example, a group of four students earning at typical US restaurant internship rates are expected to earn several thousand dollars per month collectively. This makes sharing a two bedroom apartment with two students per room, as students do in conventional dorm rooms and using public transportation affordable. A big advantage is that their small group has their own private living room and kitchen as opposed to a group of a hundred or more in a large dormatory sharing common amenities.
Similarly, students in the US can form a group to work in a different city together. Students from Boston may want to do their internships in Atlanta. Students from Baltimore may want to do an internship in Los Angeles. Students from New York may want to study in Paris, etc. This same scenario may be duplicatable around the globe. Your assigned eChef will help coordinate with the Placement Center.
In addition, the group does not have to originate in the same city or country. The only thing they must have in common is that they are trained by Epicurean and they want to live together for a one year internship. You assemble the group and the Placement Center will begin the placement process. In some cases, the Placement Center may be helpful in assembling your group with other interns in your selected city.
