Vegan Visionary Sought!
Catskill Animal Sanctuary, upstate New York’s beloved haven for horses and farmed animals, seeks a full-time vegan chef.
CAS seeks a formally-trained vegan chef to create and direct our cooking program. Our mission is simple: to create more vegans! To that end, we seek an individual who can cook and create meals from the simple to the sublime, and who can present them with flair and enthusiasm to audiences ranging from individual families (the “veg curious”) to 800 or more at our annual events. We’re looking not only for a master chef…we’re also looking for a master teacher.
With your input, we will design and implement our “vegan vision” -- a multi-faceted program that may include any of the following and will most certainly incorporate some of your creative ideas: cooking demos for volunteers, lecture/demos on vegan nutrition, vegan holiday meals, in-home cooking lessons for members, lunches for weekend visitors, and SO much more.
Salary is modest but negotiable; benefits could include full-time housing.
If you’re interested in joining a compassionate, dynamic team of people working for a common cause and you meet ALL the requirements below, send resume, cover letter, 3 personal and 3 professional references to [email protected].
• Graduation from a recognized culinary school or culinary program
• Three or more years' professional cooking experience
• In-depth knowledge of the health benefits of a vegan diet, and a passion for inspiring others about them
• Interest in working with staff to create a varied, year-round program of both on and off-site offerings
• Interest in partnering with local and Manhattan-based veg restaurants
• Strong public speaking and presentation skills
• Ability to work well with others in a team environment
