Studying the practice of apprenticeship through insider interviews

Abstract

In this developmental paper we report on our experiences of using ‘insider interviews’ instead of an ethnographic approach when researching the concept of apprenticeship in haute cuisine and science. For this research we interviewed publicly acknowledged representatives of both domains, namely top-chefs and Nobel Laureates. Our previous experience in these domains (author one in haute cuisine and author two in science) provided the basis for a meaningful discussion with our interviewees. Therefore, a joint construction of meaning became possible which is, we believe, the closest we can get to articulating the essence of these knowledge domains.
