Craigie on Main Seeks
Seeking accomplished cook to become next Craigie on Main Sous Chef
We have a stable kitchen staff and are NOT seeking entry level candidates. You must have three (3) years experience in a full service kitchen, be talented, and ready to produce.
Does your kitchen team rely on you? Does your chef describe you as:
· competitive and determined
· accepting of feedback as a matter of growth
· pushing self, people and processes to exceed
· efficient at limiting waste
· a positive influence on new staff development
· a “go to” person in the kitchen
· strong in controlling labor
· cost conscious with food purchasing and use
· organized and priority driven with daily and weekly projects well
Do you want a challenge? …a sense of personal ownership in the process? …a fast paced learning environment that most of our cooks call, “better than school?”
This opportunity is for you to take the next step in your cooking career! Craigie on Main will push your current skills and talents to another level. You will work hard in this popular Cambridge restaurant, and your skills will take a quantum leap upward.
At Craigie no job is too big or too small, so “prima-donnas” need not apply. If you are thinking about how soon you will get the call for that Food Network gig, we probably aren’t a great fit. But if you want hone your craft – the old school way – Craigie might be the place for you.
To be successful at Craigie on Main you will need more than getting by on grit and determination – our line cooks are described that way. In a Sous candidate we seek a leader that will identify with Tony’s vision and help the team “make it happen.”
If you are a hardworking, talented, and up and coming leader – we want you BUT be prepared! Our team takes great pride in the day to day challenge and in order to have any credibility with them, you will need to earn your stripes. Expect a sharp learning curve while getting immersed in the “Craigie-way.” We seek a unique brand of hot shot; willing to do the work to get where you want to go.
We could list literally dozens of awards since: best dish awards, best restaurant lists, even James Beard awards but we do not rest on our laurels – each day is a new day filled with opportunity to shine.
Imagine yourself at work at a 12-foot long, six-foot wide Molteni cooking suite, stainless custom made in France by hand to the chef’s specifications. The result: an island suite nerve-center for the kitchen, complete with hot top, flat top burners, char-broiler, plancha grill, and enough space for the team to work together to create each dish. Plus, we have combi and C-Vap ovens and many other state-of-the-art bells and whistles.
