Family Syllabus: A lovely, growing family in Arcadia is looking for a dynamic and experienced chef to join their household team. The family loves great food, appreciates a variety of flavors, and enjoys trying new dishes.

The family would love a chef who enjoys cooking a variety of authentic world ethnic cuisine with a talent for authentic Asian flavors. Their favorite flavors include Taiwanese/Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, French and Italian. Candidates who are warm, friendly, and happy to interact with the family, a curious young child, nanny, and housekeeper will fit right in!


Ideal Candidate: Their ideal candidate is an experienced professional chef that works well with others. A chef that pays attention to details, is good at planning and scheduling, is orderly and efficient, and able to multitask. A chef that enjoys collaborating with the family to plan menus, create fresh meals, snacks, and dishes that can be easily reheated, cook from scratch whenever possible, minimize processed foods, use the highest quality of fresh ingredients, and can prepare family favorite recipes if requested is essential! Chefs that have stellar organization and management of inventory, are flexible and able to take direction and feedback from the family, can work with dietary restrictions that affect the way certain foods need to be prepared and have a solid understanding of the science of cooking would be a great fit in this home.
