Job Details
Fancy Plants Kitchen is hiring a daytime prep cook who is passionate about learning to prepare excellent vegan cuisine.  
As the chef, I love to teach people how to taste, and how to cook.  You will work closely with me and our kitchen team to transform vegetables, and keep this restaurant stocked and running smoothly.
This position is less 'kitchen nightmares' style face-melting intensity; more sensitivity and sensibility, paired with an opportunity for you to become a consistent and reliable member of our team.
 
If you are passionate about cooking, consider this a paid cooking school.
You will learn many different perspectives and sensibilities that help us to craft our dishes; from traditional to modern techniques, creating balance and imbalance, classic flavor pairings, efficient prep tricks, classic interpretations of global cuisine, and an uncanny ability to organize your workflow for success. 
 
These skills you'll learn with us you will carry with you for the rest of your life. 
You will eat well, this skill will bring you happiness, you'll be able to cook very well for your loved ones, and you'll be able to throw a mean dinner party with minimal stress. 
 
Cooking is fun.

We are a 100% vegan restaurant, and I'm a chef/owner who trained in San Francisco with some excellent chefs, learning unique techniques, and working with passion utilizing farm driven produce.

We are:
1) A tight, focused team who is equal parts playful, and professional.
2) Cooks who enjoy creating fun dinner theme parties, continuing to learn, and exploring creative cooking.
3) Cooks who work clean, efficiently, and and with the focus one expects from a professional cook.

I would like to find someone who is passionate about excellence and consistency, can be thorough and organized, and can communicate with the chef, and support our team of excellent line cooks.
This really is a team sport, and we've been playing really well together lately
Pay is $18/hr. - 21/hr. based on experience, and the more you contribute to a successful business, the more you get paid.  Raises are often attached to specific, attainable goals. 
Whenever people hit the goals (and they most always do) the place does better, and we all win. 

The dining room tips out the kitchen as well.
In return, we work extra hard to create good events that bring in people, and are very responsive to customer and server needs. We've cooked for many events, including weddings, RCM (Record Chicago Music), and our Sunday 5-course dinner. I won a San Francisco iron chef, and I am very passionate about teaching cooks and food education.
 
This summer we are going to have different themes for our 5-course pre-fixe vegan dinners.

This place is going to be very successful, and the people who contribute early to something they believe in can benefit the most.

Being on time and having a good attitude are paramount. Take care of us, and we'll take care of you.

If you are interested please send us your resume, availability, and why you would like to join our team.
We will reach out and respond to each and every single applicant, so you can be clear about the likelihood of you working here.
We believe in good communication, and if you reach out to us, we'll reach out to you.

Thank you in advance for your time!

Sincerely,

The FPK team
