Culinary Camps
at The International Choux Co.

The International Choux Co., the cooking school of The Inns at St. Albans, presents an exciting slate of culinary classes taught by award-winning cooks, bakers, food professionals and best-selling authors. Our weekend cooking events are immersive experiences, each custom designed to give students the opportunity to master new skills, explore new culinary traditions and discover local producers and artisans. Camps and classes include a mix of hands-on cooking, demonstrations, excursions, talks and tastings.

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.


The Inns at St. Albans is thrilled to announce the return of culinary camps in August 2021
in the brand new home of the International Choux Co., the newly renovated Pomp’s Chapel.

Generally, weekends include cooking classes on Friday evening and all-day Saturday, wine tasting and heavy appetizers on Friday night;
Saturday morning continental breakfast, lunch buffet and dinner (alcohol by consumption); and Sunday morning breakfast buffet.
