Eater Headhunter: Working With Celebrity Chefs

There a few roads to celebrity chefdom should you want it. You can attempt culinary fame via TV, perhaps getting yelled at by celebrity chef Grodon Ramsay while showing the world your lack of skills on Hell's Kitchen. Should this be your calling, the producers are "recruiting" this Sunday at the Hollywood Farmer's Market and on Wednesday at the Santa Monica market. From the Craigslist ad: "If you’re an executive chef, a line cook, a fast food cook, a pastry chef, in culinary school, a caterer or a recent culinary school grad, or simply have a FASCINATION AND PASSION FOR FOOD?.WE WANT TO MEET YOU!" Translation: Personality trumps skill.

On the other hand, if you simply want to brush up against fame, there's this:

An internationally known Celebrity Chef, new to the USA, is seeking the services of an assistant chef to assist with recipe testing, cookbook planning, live event assistance. We are in the writing stages of this chef's 3rd book and it is an extremely exciting phase!

There is a possible opportunity to eventually travel for the right person. You may be an apprentice chef wanting to expand your horizons, a restaurant chef who is wanting to move out of the restaurant scene, or something else entirely. Please note this is a part time position that can involve nights and weekends depending on our work and travel schedule. This is an unpaid intern position.

** Please do not respond if you are an aspiring Celebrity Chef who may possibly think this is your "in" to your own TV show, this is an assisting position and will not result in that goal.

Translation: Skill trumps personality, must be independently wealthy. First person to send us the identity of this "celebrity chef" gets a martini.
