Chef Instructors 

This isn't your typical chef gig; this about sharing your passion and knowledge of food and cooking with others. Work for one of the largest recreational cooking schools in the country and make a difference in people's lives every single day. Chef Instructors support in guiding people into the right classes, setting them up with the recipes, instruction and kitchen equipment they need to get cooking as well as selecting the perfect wine to pair with dinner. Please note we require all Chef Instructors to have at least four years of professional cooking experience. 

Class Assistants

Class Assistants have a unique opportunity to work with our highly trained chefs to educate our students about the world of cooking and learn new culinary techniques themselves. Formal culinary education is not a requirement, yet an ability to demonstrate relevant hands-on industry (or equivalent) experience is essential to be considered for this role. 

Retail Concierge/Sales Associates

Our Retail Concierge/Sales Associates are interested in building long-lasting relationships with our customers and have a positive “can do” attitude. Team members will be trained to be knowledgeable about our expansive and unique line of professional cookware and gourmet retail items.
