René Redzepi has announced that culinary students will have the opportunity to dine for free at Noma Mexico and also apply for a special scholarship that could see them travel to Denmark and work at Noma.
In a new update from Redzepi and his team, they announced that the final two weeks of the pop-up, which will take place in Tulum, will have lunch times reserved for culinary students to attend and eat for free - those wanting the chance should apply by emailing here.
In even bigger news, Redzepi announced that he will be launching a new scholarship fund, Saying it will “allow Mexican culinary students to travel to Copenhagen and intern with both Noma and Hija de Sanchez. We will set up English classes beforehand, take care of travel, accommodation and give a per diem.”
The chef added: “This is something that we are really excited to be offering again. We first tested this idea a few years back with great success and ever since we have been waiting for the right moment to have a project where we can continue fostering our relationship to Mexico, and help give opportunity to young talents.”
All internships are promised in the summer time, so, as Redzepi puts it, the students won’t freeze their ass off. Anyone interesting in that should email here using the subject Mexico Scholarship in the email.
