Location has not launched
About the LoK
The League of Kitchens is a unique cooking school in New York City where immigrants teach intimate cooking workshops in their homes, and participants encounter a new culture, cuisine, and neighborhood with every experience.
We opened in 2014, currently have 10 instructors from all over the world, and have taught thousands of students from the U.S. and abroad. We’re very excited to now be laying the groundwork to launch a Los Angeles branch in the fall of 2018.
This participatory learning / cooking / eating / sharing experience starts with an interactive cooking lesson and leads into a celebratory dinner. Each experience offers opportunities for meaningful connection and social interaction, cultural engagement and exchange, culinary learning and discovery, and exceptional eating and drinking. Through this experience, we seek to build cross-cultural connection and understanding, and to increase access to traditional cooking knowledge.
The League of Kitchens has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the Chew, Tasting Table, Saveur, The Splendid Table, and Time Out New York, among others. Conde Nast Traveler called the League of Kitchens “quite possibly the coolest foodie thing to do in NYC whether you're a visitor or local.”
About the Position
We’re looking for a smart, big-hearted, self-directed, hard-working, and passionate individual to help us launch in Los Angeles and to manage day-to-day operations after launch.
Before launch, the LA Manager will help us find, train, and onboard 3-4 instructors, help organize one or more launch events, help set up the website, and help create new materials for our LA classes. After (and right before) launch, the LA Manager will manage daily operations, and oversee communications with instructors, workshop participants, partner organizations, potential instructors, and the general public. As needed, they will also help to find and train additional instructors.
We promise that you’ll have lots of opportunities to learn and grow, to meet amazing people, to build your network, to cook/eat incredible food, and to contribute in meaningful and substantive ways.
And as this is a very small operation, you will also be able to shape this role to your interests and to get involved in any other areas of the business that interest you.
You’ll work with us remotely, but the NYC team will come to LA to help train new instructors and for the launch events. We will also be there from January 8-23rd to find new instructors and to meet with potential partners (and hopefully, we’ll either be able to interview LA Manager candidates, or, meet with our newly hired LA Manager). In addition, we will fly you out to NYC for 4-5 days to meet with us in person and to take two of our NYC cooking workshops.
~20 hours/week (Some weeks will be more, some weeks will be less)
Must have some availability during business hours, during evenings, and on weekends. (This availability can change from week to week.) Must be available for skype calls with the NYC team at 7am PST/10am EST.
We’re looking for a commitment of a minimum of one year.
$1200/month (on payroll as a part-time employee). After launch, compensation will go up to $1600/month. Plus, two weeks paid vacation. We will also cover the cost of attending food related conferences, talks, parties, etc. in LA to help us spread the word, and we will fly you out to NYC and put you up for 4-5 days.
Please send a cover letter, a resume, and a writing sample (or a link to a writing portfolio/blog) to Lisa Gross, League of Kitchens Founder/CEO, at firstname.lastname@example.org
