Position: FT Chef for Household in Tiburon (FILLED)
Schedule: Tuesday to Saturday, 11:45 a.m. to 7:45 p.m. (some flexibility)

A family in Tiburon is seeking a full-time private chef to prepare lunch and dinner daily. The chef will prepare and serve a simple lunch (reheat leftovers, prepare a salad, sandwich, etc.) for Mom and their toddler as well as the staff around 12:30 p.m. Staff includes a nanny (every day) and part-time housekeeper (employed Tuesdays and Fridays). Lunch for Dad will also need to be prepared the day before and packaged for him to take to his office.

Dinners will be for the family only. Their toddler eats at 5 p.m. and dinner can be adapted to suit the children based on what mom and dad are eating. They would like some simple pasta and vegetables prepared as back up for the toddler just in case. The chef will later serve the parents dinner around 7 p.m. and will be responsible for cleanup.

Dad especially loves food and is particular, so the Chef must present a high-level menu on Sunday evening for his quick review. Their preference is for someone who is talented in many different types of cuisine, including Mediterranean, Italian, French, and Japanese. Restrictions include butter and sugar, and they prefer to limit dairy and gluten.

The chef should have the ability to manage a small dinner party for 8-10 guests by themselves and an ability to bring in support staff for larger groups when necessary.

Chef must be open to working alternate holidays each year (Thanksgiving and Christmas primarily), though the family can offer more flexibility regarding hours for those days.

Their ideal person is an extremely clean and organized individual with a calm, positive, and pleasant energy. Someone who truly loves to cook is a must.
