Pastry Chef

Seeking Top Tier Pastry Chef (great company culture and benefits!)


We’re seeking a talented Pastry Chef to join our team! Michelin starred restaurant experience strongly preferred. The ideal candidate should also be creative; enjoy preparing a variety of desserts inspired by different cultures and themes; be fast, clean, and efficient; and have a positive team-oriented attitude.

Check us out at www.componerefinecatering.com where you can learn more about our company, read about our own small Marin farm, and more.

Our culinary team is a group of accomplished restaurant chefs that never thought they’d do catering but now enjoy reimaging the industry. This position provides an opportunity to be creative, constantly experience new things, and have some evenings off on non-event days, without many of the compromises commonly associated with catering.

Our previous pastry chef was formerly head Pastry Chef of the French Laundry and Benu and can still consult if needed on menus that were written previously.

This position may be structured as either a full-time salaried or part-time hourly position. A full-time salaried position would require being able to help out in savory during slow pastry weeks.


Benefits for the full-time salaried position:
Competitive pay

Unlimited vacation package including time off for both Thanksgiving and Christmas (most team members average around 4-5 weeks per year plus three day weekends)

Full paid Kaiser health plan and dental benefits

Paid premium health club membership

Profit sharing retirement plan
