Are you seeking to enrich your culinary endeavors through hands-on experience, cultural exchange, and deep immersion in Italian cuisine as it is manifested throughout the world?
If you are a culinary student who is interested in becoming a top chef in Italian cuisine, we would love to have you join us at Umbria Hospitality for our Culinary Internship/Exchange Program.
Our culinary internship is a great way for you to bridge the gap between going to school and landing a great job. At Umbria Hospitality, we will work with you to help you develop your culinary experience and learn about Italian culture. At the end of your internship, you will have relevant job experience that will help you excel in your career.
We have three world-class venues that you will be training in. Our flagship restaurant, Mulino Italian Kitchen & Bar, provides a dining experience that takes the curious on a richly rewarding gastronomic journey across the Italian culinary landscape landscape and rewards the intrepid adventurer with simple yet sumptuous cuisine, wines, and a complementary culinary education in the history of Italian cuisine all in a very cozy environment. Our special event venues, Historic Melrose Knitting Mill and The Wakefield, are home to hundreds of corporate events, special events, and weddings throughout the year.
You will be training under some of the best chefs in the world including Umbria Founder Samad Hachby. Samad was raised in Morocco. He then attended schools in Italy on scholarship before he came to the United States to earn a political science degree from N.C. State. Italian is one of the five languages he speaks, and he worked on an Italian cruise ship for five years. In 2009, Hachby opened then Babylon Restaurant, a Moroccan dining concept, which served as one of Downtown Raleigh’s most vibrant evening and weekend destinations until the restaurant was re-imagined to the Italian eatery it is today: Mulino Italian Kitchen & Bar.
