June’s Amigo of The Month

June’s Amigo of The Month

We’re at that time of the month again where we celebrate our Avenue Amigos, and this month it’s the fantastic Dan Hughes!

Dan Hughes

Dan started by doing our 2-Week Chalet Host Course back in October 2020 and then applied for an internship with us. Having completed his internship he now works with us as a freelance chef! It’s safe to say that since first arriving at the school, Dan instantly became a part of The Avenue Family – so much so he now lives with the head chefs!

Dan says one of his favourites was learning to cook one of his favourite dishes; Katsu Curry – we have to agree, it’s completely delicious! But his all time favourite dish at The Avenue, is the Sous Vide Steak… makes us all drool just thinking about it 🤤

During lockdown, Dan spent some time with The Avenue’s chef, Richard, experimenting in the kitchen, including making ‘Bacon Sherbet’!! He said “it was one of the most disgusting yet intriguing things I have ever eaten…” Heston Blumenthal, watch out, sounds like you have some competition!

Dan’s favourite class at the school is the Bao Class, which isn’t surprising as it is one of our most popular classes – fancy booking a spot to see what all the fuss is about? – you can do here.

When asked what advice Dan would give to someone thinking about joining one of our classes/courses, he said, “As someone that has experienced both sides at the Avenue, both being on a course and teaching, I have enjoyed every minute, so just go for it!”


Thanks again Dan, for always being such a loyal Amigo!
