Susan Lane Events – Event/Banquet Chefs

Are you looking for a flexible part-time catering gig to earn extra cash during New England’s best party season? Susan Lane Events (based in Acton, MA) is seeking experienced event/banquet chefs to join our team. Our events take place mostly in our client’s private homes or at event venues. We DO NOT have a physical restaurant/kitchen space that we are hiring for. This position is for ON-SITE event cooking.

Our event chefs are responsible for unpacking, reheating, and plating our client’s menu at the event location (sometimes a private home, sometimes a venue or tent). Occasionally, the event requires a lead chef, so the ideal candidate has the ability to both take direction well from the lead chef, or to delegate effectively if assigned to the lead chef role for that particular event.

Our clients expect delicious seasonal menus, artfully arranged food displays, and top notch service from kind and respectful staff. The ideal candidate is excited about this opportunity to work our unique events with our clients, and can travel within the Greater Boston and Metro-West area. Our events are year-round, with a heavy concentration during the April-October event season, along with the November-December holiday season.

Reheat catered food to proper serving temperature, creatively display food, load and unload catering boxes to/from a client’s home from the catering van, clean the client’s kitchen at the end of the event. Communicate to waitstaff what items are ready to be served and/or displayed.

Excellent food presentation skills, ability to work independently in the kitchen, and occasionally delegate small tasks, pleasant demeanor when interacting with homeowners/clients, clean and tidy work style when using a client’s home kitchen.

SERVSafe Certification is a plus.

Base rate starting at $30/hour plus gratuities.
