Family with homes in Los Angeles and at the beach, are seeking a “Travel Chef” willing to travel with our Principals upon request

This Travel Chef position, when land based, works with the Executive Chef in place at the client’s homes for private parties and events, and Chef coverage. The Travel Chef primarily supports the family when they are on their private yacht,  as well as doing some cooking at their residence in Malibu, with some international travel when that resumes to semi-normal (no dates yet decided). They will also
collaborate with the crew sous chef onboard the vessel for provisioning etc. We want someone who is passionate about sourcing and preparing clean, sustainable, healthy, and amazing meals.

The Chef will be required to source the best local ingredients and then cook/prepare ‘normal’ but high quality meals. They would like a Chef who can put together clean, healthy, regular dishes for them, not necessarily a 5 star gourmet dinner. They’ll need to coordinate closely with the sous chef onboard the yacht, and begin to strategize how to source the best local ingredients for trips. We’ll need someone who’s super flexible, as you may need to be available with a few days’ notice for travel.

Chef will receive the client’s preference lists, and will cook accordingly off of what they can/can not eat, creating menus and adding their “flare” to the meals. Healthy, but not boring as they have excellent palates. Resourcing local vendors – wherever the clients are – will be a very important part of this job. You must be comfortable traveling, as trips could be 2 weeks. Chef will receive advance notice of length of travel to prepare.
The minimum qualifications include:
• 2+ years experience working in private residence or yacht
• Some formal training desired
• Excellent nutritional and dietary background
• Positive demeanor
• Leadership skills to help guide and support other house staff
• A cohesive team player
• Strong organizational skills
This position’s schedule will be very flexible and can be tailored in advance. They are open to developing a highly competitive flexible compensation arrangement. There is potential for travel for a week or more at a time, intermixed by week or more of free time. Client will provide an excellent compensation package for the right person. We also provide full medical benefits, 401(k) match, and an unlimited paid time off policy. .
