    DESCRIPTION

    We are looking for Line Cooks to prepare fast, high-quality and delicious food for our tap room guests. You will prepare dishes that will delight customers with taste and timely delivery. Must be able to follow instructions in cooking and delivering well-prepared meals in a fast-paced environment. Cooks should possess excellent knife skills, as well as a thorough understanding of basic cooking equipment. Because of this fast-paced environment, candidates should be strong enough mentally to handle stress. Positive and energetic interaction with other team members is required. Work typically is performed in an industrial-style kitchen. Applicants must be comfortable standing in one spot for a long period of time. Reading comprehension is critical, as line cooks will be expected to read and follow recipes with no mistakes. Cooks have one direct superior (head chef) who will assign cooks to a station. Cooks are responsible for their designated station and must understand that the failure of one station often means the failure of the entire kitchen. They must be familiar with moving around a kitchen and able to multi-task. Experience with menu change & flexibility, a variety of ingredients and cooking techniques is required. The goal is to help maintain and strengthen our reputation as the destination for incredible food and craft beer in an amazing environment.
