Cook/Chef

Edgewater, New Jersey, United States Full-time

At the Original Pancake House, guests enjoy a warm sophisticated atmosphere any time of day; during morning coffee, lunch with a colleague or brunch with family. Our menu combines the very best of everything you love about American breakfast cuisine. Our staff is the last piece of the puzzle that makes The Original Pancake House the greatest neighborhood restaurant.

 

We are looking for a Line Cook to join the team! The exceptional guest experience will be yours to create, while immersing yourself in the “little extras” that make The Original Pancake House Edgewater truly stand out.

 

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Prepare amazing food from scratch following our recipes to produce consistent results
  • Know and comply consistently with standard cooking methods, quality standards and kitchen practices
  • Cook a variety of meats, seafood, poultry, vegetables and other food items using broilers, ovens, grills, fryers and a variety of other kitchen equipment
  • Portion all the products, follow the recipes, and always make sure the plate presentation looks great
  • Keep it clean! Follow the sanitization standards, make sure your work station stays clean and organized, and follow all of the food handling standards

 

You need to be:

Someone who loves cooking! You’re someone who is consistently awesome and has an eye for the important details. Being able to hang in a fast paced environment is vital, and if you have prior experience to prove it, that’s even better. Speaking and understanding English is a must, and so is being comfortable standing for long periods of time. You’ll need to show off your muscles from time to time, so be able to lift up to 50 pounds. A great attitude and the flexibility in your schedule to work weekends and some holidays are the last ingredients to being part of our team.
