Job Description


Who Should Apply

A creative, curious, plan-in-advance chef who wants to put out high quality food and loves working events on an on-call basis.

Bite Catering Couture is looking for detail-focused, productive catering chefs for on-call prep and event work.

We are looking for somebody curious about food who is a strong chef generalist - excited about using a broad range of food, techniques, ingredients, and approaches as befits a caterer constantly creating menus tailored to a variety of client needs and events.

We run in a fairly detail and process-oriented way and so you'll be attracted to strong process, written recipes, and an understanding of how catering chefs need to work (which are very different than the rules of a restaurant, hotel, food truck, or private chef).

Success in this role generally looks like:

  • Works clean and moves quickly (without hurrying)

  • Ability to give and take instruction/ feedback without ego

  • Excellent food delivered on time and to specification (can vary for same product based on event formats)

  • Previous experience in catering, banquet, or fine dining kitchen

  • Chef "athlete" able to utilize many different skills and techniques appropriate to the item or situation

  • Reliable windows of time that can be booked for on-call work

Why work at Bite

We offer a great work environment centered in our Culver City-adjacent kitchen (with natural light!). We're a chef-run company with a focus on high quality productive work (without babysitting) with great colleagues for adults who can manage their own mise en plus, work clean, and follow recipes.

Also note: we value teamwork, curiosity, process, planning, and coaching over yelling and flying by the seat of our pants. We keep a collegial, respectful, quiet kitchen filled with self-motivated chefs.

The role

We seek a talented detail/ process-oriented chef who can help us to produce beautiful and creative food for events and work said events.

With us you will have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of cuisines with a large emphasis on detail and presentation - every day is something new. Every one of our chefs is expected to help with menu ideas. Opinions are encouraged and expected once you understand our philosophy and approach.

We run a "lean" operation off of detailed recipes, prep and event plans which helps us avoid chaos, surprises and maintain a highly productive kitchen. We believe in continuous improvement, so you'll need to help us plan and find/ solve for any errors.


  • Must have a reliable method of transportation, valid license and clean driving record.

  • Must be able to lift 50 lbs.

  • Fluent in English

  • Able to use Microsoft Excel and kitchen software/ applications

Preferred Education/ Experience

  • Culinary Degree from a notable institution with a proven record of high achievement

  • Experience in high end catering operations and/or fine dining, banquets, or other demanding culinary environments


Prep: $15-$18/hr. Event work comes with event bonuses and tips.
