Market Hall Caterers is looking for Event Cooks

Market Hall Foods

Jul 16, 2015 - East Bay Area


Market Hall Caterers, part of the renowned Market Hall Foods family, which includes The Pasta Shop, is seeking experienced Event Cooks/Chefs for our off-site full service events. This is an on-call position for our outside catered events; you would not be working in the Market Hall kitchen, and there is not a regular, predictable schedule. This can be a great situation if you have some schedule flexibility, especially around weekends, and are looking for pickup work to round out another job, school, etc.

We’re looking for dependable, professional, personable people who are excellent cooks, and are able to deal effectively with a wide variety of venue facilities and events, many of which don’t have real kitchens. Most of our events are small to medium size and fairly straightforward, with most of the food fully prepared and just needing to be heated or finished in some way. Really, this is about getting already great food out in a timely way, beautifully presented, and with minimal fuss.

It’s required that you have a valid, clean driver’s license, a California Food Handler’s Certificate, and direct, relevant experience in off-premises catering. You must be able to lift and move all kinds of equipment and furnishings. You must have decent food knowledge to answer questions about dishes, as Market Hall has a deep repertoire and our menus span many cuisines.

Event chefs oversee the whole sequence of an off-premise private event, from pack-out, set-up, service, breakdown and return to our facility. This person must be multi-functional, professional, flexible, able to lead and coordinate staff and of course, gracious with our clients and their guests.

Most of our events are moderate in size and not overly formal. Usually you will be working with one to ten other people, some of whom are from staffing companies. Many of our events are with long-time customers in their homes and businesses. In other words, this is more of a hands-on job with a personal approach. We are a great team of talented people who are proud of their work and our successful, growing company. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and delicious food. We have many repeat customers.
