Marshall-Alan Associates can help you find the perfect chef for your hotel restaurant, specialty restaurant, club or other food service operation. Extremely talented chefs are very hard to find, and are paid extremely well in order to retain their services. Finding and trying to engage a top-notch, professional chef can be a long and tedious process – but Marshall-Alan Associates can help.
Many talented chefs have specialty skills, cooking French food, organic dishes, pastries or soups with flair. Alternate forms of cooking such as using nitrogen or natural food based chemistry to cook foods is becoming more popular, as is the practice of plating foods with original artistic designs created by the chefs themselves. In addition, showmanship is becoming a part of chef culture with the explosion of the entertainment industry around gourmet cooking. Many chefs have reached rock star status and actually have agents who help them map their move up the star studded culinary ladder.
