We have expanded the kitchen brigade here at ********** Resort and I am in search of a pastry assistant to work in Beautiful rural Vermont. The ideal person would be well rounded, energetic, enthusiastic, willing to learn, food-focused and extremely detail-oriented. Ideally I am looking for someone recently graduated or at an early point in their career although this position is an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants to progress to the 5-star level. The position is full time, with excellent benefits, vaca, 401k, etc. and possible on-property housing to boot. Pay depends on what you can bring to the table. We run a tight kitchen filled with foodies. We love what we do and strive for perfection without the all too-hard-core, ball-busting, militant attitude. A good majority of our kitchen staff have been here for 5 years or longer, some 9, 10, and 11; the kitchen is well equipped (steam hearth ovens, pacojet, sheeter, tons of china, space, etc...) and is an excellent place to work.

The Resort recieves awards every year and is, and has been a Mobil 5-star property for the last 13 years, we feature only 20 exclusive rooms and cottages set on a few hundred acres with our own ski hill, pond, spa, multi acre organic garden, and more. We have not recieved a Mobil rating for food, simply because our restaurant is not open to the public! Since our property is not open to the public we therefore we have a maximum of 40 guests on property (there is, however, never a shortage of work). Room rates range from $1,100 to $3,200 per night and our guests expect nothing short of perfection.

As for the position; I run a 100% scratch operation and we produce a full range of products from almost every aspect of patisserie and boulangerie:
-Daily production of Artisanal hearth breads, rolls, flatbreads for lunch and dinner; Breakfast pastry includes laminated, enriched and quick breads as well as afternoon tea service products. All Fairly traditional yet forward thinking.
-Our main focus is on plated dessert; 1 dessert course for lunch (2-3 course meal), 2 dessert courses for dinner, sometimes cheese (5-8 course tasting menu format) as well as dinner petit fours and evening turndowns. The desserts, as well as the savory food, are all encompassing and purely progressive, blending classic theory with modern applications and techniques (kind of like -dare I say- The French Laundry meets WD-50 :wacko:
-We also produce a line of hand made artisan chocolates and confections soon to hit the market. Look out Mr. Recchiuti' :cool:
-The other fun note is that whether our guests stay 2 nights or 12...they will never see the same dish, bread, tea or turndown twice!!
-And this is just the short list...

Needless to say, the position of pastry assistant is an enormous learning opportunity for a motivated, dedicated foodie. Or an excellent position for an experienced pastry chef wanting to get out of the rat race of the city, but still work with high-end cuisine. The position is available now and I will not fill it until I find the right person.

Please help me spread the word and find that person!!!

Resumes can be sent to DessertsByDesign@aol.com or e-mail me and I can give you a fax and phone number.

Many thanks in advance.

Thuets flagship restaurant is currently looking for a full time evening bread baking assistant. No experience is required, just eagerness and a quick pair of hands. I am staging there a few nights a week but the current assistant is moving to the new Thuet location Atelier. Its a very laid back environment, with an unbelievable amount of knowledge to be gained. Toronto life described it as "the best bread in Toronto, hands down". As imcurrently eating a pain au lait bun stuffed with gruyere and smoked ham i can certainly attest to its tastiness. The position will be one-on-one with the master bread maker David Wilson, as well as interaction with the pastry chef. Anyone interested in this opportunity reply here and I'll put you into contact with Mr. wilson himself. Worse case scenario pop by Thuet and support artisan bakers by buying and consuming many loaves.

I will be finally graduating culinary school in a few weeks and need to start sending out my resume. I want to work in NYC at a job that pays and is fairly upscale. Does anyone work or have worked on the line any place in NYC that they recommend? I was hoping to do Italian cuisine, but since I am not picky, I just can't wait to get back on the line or in a prep position.

If you are interested in this position, please send a PM to jtphjl. -- CA

The Obama National Campaign in Ohio is heading into the critical get-out-the-vote crunch of the last three weeks. Their ground campaign is run by about 50 staff and full-time volunteers in a "bullpen" in Columbus, who will be working pretty much around the clock for the next three weeks. They have an industrial kitchen there, and they are looking for a full-time cook who can feed the troops through Election Day. They will supply the supplies and the equipment, and will put the cook up in supporter housing.

If you know someone who's had experience cooking for large groups and could take the next three weeks off to volunteer in Ohio, please steer them my way.

Ridgewood New Jersey is proud to host the State's oldest birthday celebration for the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The day begins with an interfaith service (10:00) ceremony & walk through the village followed by a community lunch at noon. The day ends with an afternoon entertainment program.

The community lunch receives donations from Kings, Whole Foods and Stop & Shop, Mc Donalds (Burgers) Wendy's (chili) for side dishes - there is a committee volunteer who coordiantes donations for the day.

I am looking for a cook to prepare the lunch's traditional servings of soup, fried chicken, biscuits, sandwhiches and dessert. The lunch draws aprox. 400. (You will have several "church folk" to help prepare, cook, serve and shop!)

The stipend is $250.00 for the cook - :(
The budget is $1500.00 for food & provision of paper products.

Any one interested, let's talk... Jan 201 670-1610

This is really a volunteer position I realise -- and a token opportunity to put out a business card if so inclined... The last cook recently retired after 27 years (she is 87) - last year a local church member volunteered - he can not take off from work this year --

It increasingly looks as if I am shortly to part company with my employers of 17 years. With the economy as it is, and at the age of 53, I'm not expecting to get a well paid job in a hurry.

I have a share in a (very much wet led) pub in West Wales, that is now really struggling, so my plan is to move there full time in a few months and try to relaunch it as a food led operation.

I will be in London and not working (though at the moment still being paid) for the next 2 or 3 months , and would really appreciate any offers of unpaid work experience in a professional kitchen environment.

I'm a reasonably competant home cook and have plenty of experience of banging out Sunday lunch for 30 to 40 people in the pub as well as of managing a coffe shop/cafe operation and bars as part of my day job.

Looking for anything from the odd day to 3 months , doing any thing kitchen related as long as their is an opportunity to learn and get experience.

If anyone can offer any opportunity, or point me in the right direction for finding such opportunities, I'd be really grateful. I'm based in central north west london, but happy to travel anywhere in London area.

Hello,i want to expose my personal situation

I want go to US to make an internship in a nice restaurant.I found one page that can help me during the process to obtain the j-1 visa and all the paperwork: www.allianceabroad.com .They have two options :They found the restaurant and the housing and help me with the paperwork.Or, i found a eployeer and they do the conexion between him/her and me and do the paperwork.I´ve spoken with those guys and they look serious and confirmed me all the info.

I am more interested in the second option,my question is if you think i can find any good restaurant that want me in the crew for 6 months or 1 year.If the restaurant is really nice i can work free or with a very little compensation.

On the other hand the guys from the page told me that my CV is one of the best in culinary arts and the coordinator is really convinced he can find me a nice job/internship with a 1200-1500Usd payment, but i don´t know what is a "nice job" for him.

I will finish my culinary arts school in San sebastian (Spain) in october, I´ve made stages in all kind of restaurants incluiding michelin star restaurants,and in 2007 i have worked 6 months in a restaurant in Miami.

I hope you can give me some advices and tips!


(sorry about my english,i wish i can increase my level in some months!)

From Chef from Clarens:

I'm keen to see if there are any chefs (25-30years old) but could be older who would like to have a working holiday in South Africa. I have a 3* 20 roomed hotel, a stand alone up-market but not quite fine dining mainly steak restaurant as well as a little coffee shop. We are based in the little village of Clarens in the Eastern Free State mountains next to the Kingdom of Lesotho in South Africa. I would love to host a chef or two for 6-8 months in our kitchens, then send them on to friends & colleagues on a holiday for 6-8 weeks en route home. I think the cross cultural learning could go a long way to all concerned in broadening our outlook in the catering & hospitality industry. Are there any interested chefs out there who would like to correspond with me?

phattchef@gmail.com  or  chefbrabazon@gmail.com

Hi all

I'm sensitive to not bombarding e-gullet with business but I hoped the situation we have might be of interest to some on here.

We are a small, independant food business based in East Sussex/Kent border with two main branches to our business:

We are a wholesale butchery - originally a High St butcher our meat supply 25 years ago all came out of Smithfield. Quality was variable and provenance unknown. As a result we started going direct to local livestock farmers. That was then and now is now, as a result of what I hate to call a 'trend' in people's approach to food other butchers; and then later restaurants etc. came to us and the wholesale business grew: Butchers are easy, they tend to demand for example a side of beef, 6 lambs and 3 pigs in a week. When a caterer asks us for 12 whole filets we are then left with the rest of 6 animals to deal with;

Our other business basically seeks to make use of and adding value to principally, the forequarter of beef which we primarily do by producing meat pies, in the same way that butchers have always made puddings and pies and hasslet and brawn etc etc.

The current way we operate is very much word-to-mouth with local businesses and some work in London. What we really need is someone to put a bit of commercial immperative into it. The role would be part time and could be really flexible - possibly suiting someone with children in school etc.

If anyone is interested please drop me a pm/email at ben@sussexfarms.co.uk

To all you want to be chefs... I am from South Africa, own and run a successful 50 seater upmarket grill house restaurant and a 25 roomed 3* hotel. We offer mid-life training stages in our organisation. You are welcome to contact me for more information, but in a nutshell, the candidate comes and spends up to 4 weeks in various departments of the hotel or specifically the kitchen. In those 4 weeks we endevour to help acertain whether or not the candidate really wants to work in a restaurant/ kitchen or whether they have been enticed by the romantic visions from childhood / TV shows etc. More often than not candidates leave saying "THANK YOU for opening my eyes to what could have been the biggest mistake of my life. I'll stay a happy home cook!!" BUT on the other hand we've woken passions in some people that have had to be addressed. We leave that up to them. Some stay on as trainees in my kitchen, some go home and dream and others go back to school. Mail me in confidence hereEmail me
The fat & happy Chef from Clarens, Eastern Free State, South Africa.
I've never had a bad day in the kitchen, but I've had some bad kitchens in my day!

Hi everyone,

I am looking to open a neopolitan style pizzeria in california. I've been a chef for about 8 years now but have zero to none experience in making pizza. I'm currently working at a pizzeria to learn the techniques but was wondering if anyone knew of any stages in italy where I can learn more about pizza making. Or any other leads or references that may help me achieve my goal.

Thanks :)

I have been attempting to embark upon a second career now focused within the food industry. I have tremendous passion, knowledge and technical abilities, great taste buds and commitment to always learn more. I would give my eye-teeth as the saying goes. I am in Rockland County, NY on the border of Northern NJ. Any assistance and guidance would be greatly appreciated. I truly believe, knowing how my first business was so successful because it was built upon a passion, that I can be successful given the opportunity.

Hey guys, first post although I have been looking around eGullet for some time. I have been working in the food service industry since I was 14 and am just now seriously thinking of this as a career. However, I am currently enrolled in college, and as such am, having trouble finding work here in Atlanta, GA. I was wondering if you guys had any sort of advice for someone like myself trying to break into the fine dining aspect of the industry, who most likely will only be able to work summers.

I hope everyone had a great holiday. Tasted Menu (http://www.tastedmenu.com/about), a website and forthcoming mobile app that helps people find the best restaurant dishes, is currently looking to hire a Content Director to join our team here in Boston. A full job description can be found below. I thought this position could be of interest to folks on eGullet. Feel free to pass this along or to reach out to me with any questions. We're also on the lookout for a part-time Community Manager (http://www.tastedmenu.com/careers).


If you live in Boston and haven't already, check us out! We'll soon be expanding to additional markets.


As a Content Director at Tasted Menu, you'll find yourself at the center of our menu database operations, and in particular the expansion and maintenance thereof. Based in Boston, you'll work directly with the Founder & CEO and will be responsible for coordinating with contractors, offshore firms, and our users. As our ideal candidate, you are...

* Obsessively meticulous and thorough. If people refer to you as "anal," that's a good thing. Like a copyeditor, you should be able to scan dozens of pages of text or data and, within seconds, spot any errors. Style manuals are like scripture to you. Excel is your playground. Data-centric tasks that others might consider rote, you find invigorating.

* Tenacious and indefatigable in doing whatever it takes to meet aggressive, imperative deadlines.

* Passionate about restaurants and, of course, restaurant menus. An hour spent reading Eater or browsing Art of the Menu is like heaven for you. You're excited about the opportunity to quickly establish thorough and up-to-date knowledge of restaurant scenes in markets throughout the country.

* Immersed in the online food world and social media in general. You spend more time than you're willing to admit consuming and producing restaurant content online. You know what makes online foodies tick because you yourself are one.

We're looking for someone who is energized about being a core part of a team building something that will change the way people discover food and share their dining experiences. If this person is you, please reach out to us at careers@tastedmenu.com or apply with LinkedIn on our Careers page (http://www.tastedmenu.com/careers).
