Location: Pacific Palisades

Schedule: Monday – Friday, 7a-7p (with a break between lunch & dinner)

Compensation: Day rate, DOE

A family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) who recently moved from the UK to the Palisades is seeking a top notch, full time chef to join their family team. They are seeking someone who is friendly, good with kids, comfortable with dogs, and an excellent cook! There are some intolerances and special diets in this family, so the ideal candidate has experience cooking with substitutes and offering alternative options, still making the food taste just as delicious. We would like to find someone who knows how to avoid gluten and casein, and be mindful of sugars as one family member needs to strictly monitor their sugar intake and wears a glucose monitor.

The chef will be responsible for breakfast, lunch and dinner, in addition to preparing and packing the kid’s school lunches. The family is comfortable with the chef prepping food off site if needed, but will require the chef to cook on site in their home kitchen. There will be flexibility for the chef to leave for a break after lunch and return back later to start dinner.

Additional duties will include handling all grocery shopping for the house, making sure the fridge and pantry are properly stocked, and old, expired foods are tossed. A weekly menu plan is preferred until the family’s preferences are learned, and then the family will be open to more spontaneous meals.

Fridays will be a meal prep day, prepping meals for the family to make over the weekend (chopping veggies, seasoning meats, and putting the meals together so they are easy to cook).

Meal schedule is as follows:

7:30 am – Breakfast

8:30 am – Kids lunches packed and ready to go

11:00 am – Lunch (Mr.’s lunch is packed to go)

5:00 pm – Dinner for Kids

6:00 pm – Dinner for adults
