About This Project

16 trainees, 10 workplaces, 5 fields of work and 1 city: the perfect ingredients for a successful project! This group of Polish trainees stayed in Seville for a three-week internship in March/April 2017, working as hairdressers, cooks, pastry cooks, chef assistants and waiters at several local companies, of which mostly restaurants and tapas bars.


The trainees carried out tasks such as:


  • Learning about the typical Spanish cuisine and local specialties
  • Performing skilled cooking and food preparation
  • Assisting in coordinating food service activities to have meals prepared at scheduled time
  • Washing and drying kitchen pots/ utensils and ensuring their proper storage
  • Observing and testing food to determine if it has been cooked sufficiently, using methods such as tasting, smelling or piercing it with utensils
  • Weighing, measuring and mixing ingredients according to recipes or personal judgment, using various kitchen utensils and equipment


Next to that, they also took part in all kinds of cultural activities: they did a stadium tour, went on a Seville tour and visited the cities of Granada and Malaga. We hope the trainees had a great and interesting stay.

Katarzyna Sadło:

‘The atmosphere at the workplace was very nice. I spent a very good time with the coworkers, in spite of my little knowledge of Spanish. If only I had such opportunity, I could work in this restaurant permanently. During my stay in Spain, I had an opportunity to get familiar with Spanish culture and customs. In my free time I was walking and sightseeing Seville.’

‘At my workplace, I got to know many nice people, who were coming regularly. During the practices, I was brewing the coffee, getting to know the profession and I was serving customers. During the stay in Spain, we have seen a lot of interesting places, among them the Spanish Square, Metropol Parasol, the Cathedral of Saint Mary etc.’
