Sous Chef ‐ The Shot Caller


“I can tell the difference between a pear and an apple blindfolded. I was that kid who licked my plate clean. My socks always match because that’s what looks good. If I were into football I would be the referee. People say I take pride in everything I do.”


Sound like you? Apply to be a Sous Chef with LivGenerations today. Waste is not an option for you, which is why you follow strict guidelines that align with proper portion control. As Sous Chef, you take pride in everything that goes out of your kitchen. You have strict standards, and you expect the same level of care and consideration from the culinary staff.
