A high profile couple are seeking a superlative live-in chef to work between their homes in New York (UES) and Jamestown, RI. The schedule will incorporate lunch (12:30pm, served from time to time) and dinner (7:30pm, served), and will typically be Friday through Tuesday, with Wednesday and Thursday off each week. The role will be split between the principals’ homes in Manhattan (typically Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) and Rhode Island (typically Friday, Saturday, Sunday). The principals generally spend the entire summer in Rhode Island, where the candidate will be provided separate housing on their 8-acre estate, complete with a newly renovated chef kitchen for their sole use (with stunning views!). They will also provide a studio apartment to the candidate in Manhattan when they are on duty, and will cover transport back and forth to Jamestown, RI. 


The candidate will be required to accommodate lactose intolerance (one of the principals only), and the couple describe themselves as “foodies” but are health/weight-conscious, so prefer light, fresh, nutritious meals (salads, soups, low sugar- agave only- lean poultry and fish etc.). Collectively, the couple probably spend 3 months of the year traveling, and do not require the chef to join them, but will guarantee the candidate's salary during this time. The summer (June, in particular) is generally the busiest month, with family (including children) visiting. 


Candidates must be professional, passionate and discrete, with previous experience working in formal, fully-staffed homes. This role would best suit someone who enjoys peace and quiet/ nature. Candidates must drive, and have a clean driving record and valid driving license. Only those candidates who are fully COVID vaccinated will be considered for this role. A highly competitive compensation package is available to the successful candidate - their current chef has been with them for 21 years and is leaving in April, but will happily provide a comprehensive handover to the candidate. If you are interested, with a US passport, Green Card or EAC, please apply to KP423.
