A chef in the midst

My husband, Ron, and I have just purchased our first AS and will be taking it on the road in the next couple of months or so. Not ready to retire we hope to mix it up with some Workamping (paid) positions or freelance type of work. I have had a private chef and catering business for the past 12 years and am hoping to parlay that on the road. Just wondering if there are any others out there that have successfully taken their job(s) on the road with them and what that was like for you. Of particular interest, of course, would be any other chefs out in AS world :-)

Thanks for all of the continued great ideas and shares.

Karis, new AS mom

Hi - I think there is a thread here called working while camping or something like that. A lot of the full timer threads have had that discussion too. I don't know how to provide you with a link to them in this reply from my iPhone but search for those words and you'll find the threads! Good luck! Sounds fun!!

That's an interesting idea for workamping. Some of our State Parks have group camping, meeting and dining facilities. Having a shur-nuff chef in the campground might raise some interest and bring in some more business.

Could do some "classes" as Chef! Might be lucrative.

I don't know what the prospects might be, but I suspect that you might find an audience for your skills with the planners who put together Regional and National Airstream Rallys. You could probably approach them with the idea of offering to cater one or more of their Rally included meals . . . or offer to present a seminar. I know that as a presenter at some of these rallys that I have done so as a volunteer, but I do know that caterers are often employed to provide one or more of the rally group meals.

Good luck with your investigation and planning!

Kevin
