Welcome to Way of the Chef - The world’s ONLY dedicated stage website for chefs!

A stage is a cooking internship and one of the oldest forms of education in the industry. Staging in a restaurant allows chefs to learn new techniques, discover new cuisines and ingredients, to soak up the atmosphere of a new kitchen and to gain invaluable experience working under a new chef.

With millions of kitchens worldwide, thousands of chefs to learn from and hundreds of different cuisines to discover; the possibilities really are endless with staging.

At Way of the Chef, we stage in as many restaurants as possible across the UK and Europe to provide unique insight into the dynamic and varied world of the stagiaire and to help chefs to discover their ideal stage. 

We have an ever-growing number of stage articles to pore over for inspiration, including three Michelin starred restaurants and even some on the World’s 50 Best list.

With interviews with top chefs and in-depth stagiaire guides soon to be released; Way of the Chef is the ultimate stage destination for chefs.
