Rome Sustainable Food Project

Type: Internships [View all]
Posted by: American Academy in Rome
Deadline: Thu, May 31st, 2018

The Rome Sustainable Food Project (RSFP) is a production and teaching kitchen whose daily success relies strongly upon a team of interns and visiting cooks. Living and training here in Rome for a period of four months, they learn alongside an American and Italian kitchen staff to cook for the Academy community.

The RSFP chefs’ teaching philosophy takes root in a practical, hands-on approach to learning. By “diving in” to the busy workday of a professional kitchen, interns learn to prepare seasonal produce with a multitude of techniques. In so doing, they gain extensive knowledge in Roman and Italian culinary practices, as well as practical experience cooking for large groups in the style of a banquet. Twice daily menu meetings are an essential part of the internship education: in them, interns receive their assignments from the chef and learn the history of a dish and its preparation from start to finish.

The RSFP internship position is paid with a small benefit. Room and board are provided. There are three internship periods available every academic year. All internships are usually four months. However, it is possible to apply for an internship of up to six months.
