TIPSY NOMAD POSITION OVERVIEW
The chef is responsible for all food production in the restaurant and catering. He or she develops menus, creates food purchase specifications and recipes, supervises production staff, develops and monitors departmental food and labor budgets, and maintains the highest professional food quality and sanitation standards. The chef leads by example and is responsible for all food and beverage back-of- house (BOH) operations while working closely with front-of-house (FOH) staff to ensure the delivery of high quality and consistent products, services and offerings to all guests. The chef is responsible for ensuring that all food is consistently outstanding; from standardized menu options to innovating offerings. Consistency is imperative at Tipsy NoMad Bar and the chef should have standards and processes in place that ensure that consistency in every meal served. The chef creates Specials often; incorporating features and developing and documenting recipes and controls to ensure consistency. Creativity, not just variety, is essential in planning special menus for Tipsy NoMad customers. The chef is a team builder who mentors kitchen staff and develops a pipeline of talented and creative individuals by building on its reputation as an excellent learning and training ground for up and coming culinarians. The chef treats all staff with respect and, in return, requires that of the team. The chef works to ensure that a positive working atmosphere is maintained throughout all F&B operations. The chef is responsible for leading product knowledge training for FOH personnel through daily pre-meal meetings and special food knowledge training programs. The chef is the face of culinary operations and should be comfortable conversing and interacting in both FOH and BOH settings, and interfacing with multiple and diverse parties: Customers, staff, vendors, etc., throughout the day. The chef is visible and responsive to Restaurant and team member requests and strives to find creative ways to accommodate reasonable requests. Ultimately the chef is the important and positive face of Tips NoMad’s culinary operations. He or she is integral in the overall success of the operation. The responsibility of this facet of the organization – from a passionate, creative, supporting, progressive team and member-focused perspective – is of critical importance for long-term success.
