Opportunities with Gradito
We are passionate about treating chefs and sommeliers with respect, and compensating them based on experience. Diverse backgrounds and resumes are what we’re looking for. Following our registration process, which includes references and a background check, our chefs are carefully selected based on their enthusiasm for memorable food experiences and service.
How do I receive contact requests through the Gradito app?
First, chefs must keep their schedules current, as clients match with them based on cuisine choice and schedule. Please confirm if you'd like to be booked for short notice events, as chefs are able to be booked for three course dinners within six to 24 hours’ notice. Chefs receive a 30 percent pay increase for short notice service.
Is there a Budget for groceries for the event? Does it Affect A Chef's Compensation?
Chefs first input their minimum daily rate and it's worked with a multiplier system based on the number of people and size of menu. Chefs who set a lower day rate receive more work.
Grocery budget is determined based upon the size of menu and number of guests. Total dollar amount to be used for groceries is shown to the chef for each individual booking within the app. Please take a photo of all receipts and send it to us within the app.
