Cook/Chef needed at our Farm to Table Helicopter Lodge
Located just one hour from Anchorage, Knik River Lodge is modeled on the immaculate backcountry accommodations of Europe or Canada. You’ll experience decadent meals and craftsman-built cabins.
- Palmer, Alaska
- Previous experience required
- Start Date:
- Job starts immediately! (May 25, 2018)
Knik River Lodge is managed by a young couple that moved on from the large corporate lodges of the National Parks, to bring a more personable experience to seasonal work in beautiful places. We aim to set the standards of this industry high and take our employee interactions and experience to heart.
We would love to welcome the right applicants into our small family, and give our team the opportunity to grow with us. Chef Travis and the team have an excellent relationship with local farms, and applicants should be ready to join the close-knit farming community that surrounds us in the Matsu Valley!
Raven's Perch restaurant is an "Alaska Grown" certified facility. One of our main goals is to become the most Alaskan restaurant in the state! We are already acquiring 70% of our early season produce from our local farms, while events such as beer dinners with local breweries, weddings, and retreats offer our team of chefs plenty of flexibility and a wonderful creative outlet.
Applicants for this position must have previous experience in a fast-paced setting, and be self-motivated. The Sous Chef will work under our executive chef to carry out directives of management and owners, and will directly supervise the staff of the kitchen. Seasonal Menu writing is a team effort, and it will be important that applicants have creativity in the culinary sense. Our facility and appliances are only 2 years old, so our team has time to focus on making a name for themselves, instead of dealing with old equipment typical of lodges.
Perks of this and all jobs at Knik River Lodge include helicopter rides to the massive Knik and Colony glaciers, Dogsled tours on the Troublesome Glacier, and a wonderful backyard with a growing trail network for recreating. Housing will be included with this position (if needed).
We are located one hour from Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska. Shopping opportunities are abundant there, but the surrounding communities of Palmer and Wasilla should be able to satisfy most comforts and needs. The closest Grocery Store is located a 20-minute drive, with the closest Walmart being only a half hour away. Trails are abundant in the area, as are all types of outdoor recreation. We pride ourselves in supporting our neighbors and encourage staff to build these relationships just the same.
We look forward to hearing from you!
