What is a kitchen host in Terra Alta?

The kitchen is the heart of the land where the harvest turns into delicious food. For this we are in search for someone that is passionate about guiding a small group of people into cooking lunch and dinner daily.

You will be asked to work around 5 hours a day in tasks that include:

-working together with the gardening apprentices to harvest what is needed

-guiding a small group of students and crew into cooking a meal together

-keeping inventory of our stock

For this position you need to be able to commit to the given time frame:

End of May - Beginning August

You will also be in charge of baking bread for each course, this doesn't need any pre-knowledge as we can show you once you get here.

If you are interested in experiencing community living and cooking while being hosted by a beautiful landscape and meeting many new friends this might be an opportunity for you.

You will not be expected to take on the role of a chef, just to be a guide for the group and enjoy the process together.
