Looking for on-call prep/ event chefs for high end catering. Focus is on a mix of part-time + on-call or seasonal work through the holidays.
This position is an on-call role for someone with the bandwidth to help out on prep and events (and maybe a bit of recipe work as we prepare to go fully computerized). Generally this works well as a side-gig for someone with other things going on...we have a system where you can sign up for published shifts you can accept/ decline as your schedule allows.
Bite Catering Couture offers a catering chef role designed for smart, ambitious chefs who can do a bit of everything and like constantly stretching their boundaries. We're a high end catering company who's customers ask us to do very different things in any given week, so we need chefs who can wrap their head around different approaches based on what makes sense for the week.
We have a team of down-to-earth chefs all looking to teach and learn. You'll also get to use a wide range of equipment, get exposed to a wide range of food and production volumes. We also offer a kitchen full of chef toys to play with, R&D work to make it valuable, in-house recipe tech to communicate, and a general focus on improving every day.
Success in this role generally looks like:
Why work at Bite
We offer a great work environment centered in our Culver City-adjacent kitchen (with natural light!). We're a chef-run company with a focus on high quality productive work (without babysitting) with great colleagues who are adults who can manage their own mise en plus, work clean, and follow recipes. Our Event work can occur all over LA.
Also note: we value teamwork, curiosity, process, planning, and coaching over yelling and flying by the seat of our pants. We keep a collegial, respectful, quiet kitchen filled with self-motivated chefs.
What we're about:
Our tagline is “Designed Thoughtfully. Crafted Lovingly. Presented Beautifully.” Our events reflect this across a range of different service levels (delivery to high end full-service) and themes (we’re known for a number of our thematic menus like high tea, small bites, and holidays).

Prep: $16.50-$25/hr for prep. Rates above $22/hr are based on proven onsite performance/ productivity/ capabilities.
Events: $20-$30/hr (depending on role) for event work plus event bonuses
