Wind River Ranch and Ministries, a Christian Family Guest Ranch, seeks a breakfast chef to stack hands with a phenomenal kitchen and ranch staff this summer.

Outstanding food, fun, service, awesome guests and BREATHTAKING VIEWS are just some of the ingredients that make Wind River Ranch special.


The responsibilities of the breakfast chef include, but are not limited to:

  • The breakfast chef must have previous cooking and baking experience, also having some knowledge of special diets such as gluten, dairy, and nut allergies.
  • We will usually have a few guests each week that have food allergies and strive to accommodate them. You must be self-motivated, efficient, keep a clean workspace, and be organized.  
  • In the mornings the breakfast chef will come into the kitchen at the time set according to the weekly schedule, brew the coffee for the cocoa cabana and restock the coffee bar if needed. Pull or bake any necessary breakfast pastries and prep whatever is on the menu that morning for breakfast, usually a protein, eggs, French toast or waffles, and oatmeal. Servers will set up the continental buffet.  Once the prep chef comes in they will help with whatever is left to prep and cook for breakfast. Once breakfast is out, prep for lunch and dinner will start. The breakfast chef will help with that prep but will first and foremost take care of baking the pastries and breads for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and prepping for the next day’s breakfast. The lunch pastry usually consists of items like streusel bars, layered bars, brownies, blondies, etc. Cookies should also be set out in the cocoa cabana every afternoon. Desserts for dinner are either pies or cobblers, our staple churros, and a couple of pre-made desserts that are guest favorites.
  • Once you are done with your tasks, usually around 2 PM, you are off the clock for the day. However, you are required to attend guest and staff activities (such as square dance and fireside which happens 3 times a week) in the evenings which usually only last an hour or two.
  • Saturdays are typically half days, serving a light continental, but hot, breakfast before guests depart. It’s an all hands on deck day, doing a detailed deep clean of the kitchen, usually finishing late morning and off for the rest of the day through Sunday morning, meeting at 12:30 for the weekly staff meeting.
