Culinary Camps
at The Inns at St. Albans

International Choux Co., the cooking school of The Inns at St. Albans, presents an exciting slate of culinary camps taught by award-winning cooks, bakers, food professionals and best-selling authors. These weekend-long events are intimate and immersive experiences centered around a theme and led by a visiting chef. Attendees enjoy cooking demonstrations, excursions, talks, tastings and dinners, plus a two-night stay on the property.

Our name pays homage to Oscar Johnson, co-founder of the International Shoe Company, and his wife Irene Johnson, the visionary who cultivated St. Albans’ beauty and tradition of hospitality throughout the early 20th century.
