Interns I
Kitchen, Food Service,
Clean-Up, Etc.

We take on regional paid interns in both the food service and kitchen areas, whether fresh from schools or just from their personal interests. We train and pay them well for advancement.

Although culinary work can be exceptionally hard, our team works smoothly together as a team amid peaceful, friendly, and often mentoring relationships. While we function under traditional titles, our model is much more flat and cooperative than under a strict command-and-control "yes chef!" hierarchy. Clients often comment, "Why don't I hear any yelling in the kitchen?"
