Our high-end catering events feature menus and locations that vary each day, which means our Executive Chef must be eager to take on the challenge of leading our teams in many different environments while using a variety of cooking methods and ingredients. Our approach to catering is different than most, in that we cook all dishes a la minute, restaurant style, on each event site, every time. No boring buffets, transporting in hot boxes, or old-school style catering.

Ideal Candidates should: 

  • Be able to offer culinary instruction and demonstrate skills to kitchen staff
  • Be a patient, organized leader who is able to supervise and coordinate tasks for our kitchen team, in both prep and on-site event work  
  • Display excellent communication skills in order to successfully collaborate with our sales, event staff, and management teams
  • Be creative and eager to take on new challenges
  • Be willing to work nights, weekends, and holidays during our May-October season
  • Be comfortable with food costing, ordering, receiving and scheduling
  • Work well under pressure, in high stakes situations

Why Should You Apply?

  • Full-time, salaried (+tips) position starting late April 2022 through October 2022
    • Potential for full time, year round employment with benefits after successful completion of first season
  • Fun, safe, and professional work environment
  • Opportunities for learning, growth, and advancement in a team-oriented environment 
  • Access to learning and development opportunities including classes, mentorship programs and 1:1 support
  • Simple IRA Match
  • Employee Referral Program
  • Dining discounts at our sister properties
  • Experienced chefs with or without catering experience are eligible to apply
  • Possible housing available 
  • Be part of a fun, award-winning team!
Interested candidates should contact us at Contact [email protected] with questions.
