We’ve got lots of ideas for future shows, but it’s not always easy to find the people whose story we want to tell. Below is a short list of people we’d like to find and we’re asking for your help in locating them. If you or someone you know is a good candidate for one of the shows listed below, head over to our contact page and let us know.
Chef for roadies
Roadies work hard and they’ve gotta eat. We’re looking for a chef that’s been out on the road to learn about what it takes to keep the crew well fed.
The recipes you see in food magazines, books, serious food blogs and on TV have to be tested. That means not only making and remaking the recipe many times, but also making sure the instructions are clear, easy to follow and complete. We’re looking for recipe testers who get paid to do the research and ensure that when you go to work in your kitchen, the results will be great.
It’s probably the least glamorous job in the food industry – dishwasher. Dishwashers are vital to keeping restaurant kitchens operating at peak performance. Cooks cannot run out of skillets, fresh dishes must be ready to put on tables along with clean utensils. We’re looking for someone who has been a dishwasher for a long time to find out what the job is like.
When the ticket-spitter buzzes in the kitchen with a new order, it doesn’t make sense for every cook to rush up and take a look. Line cooks need to know what to prepare and when to have it ready. If job isn’t handled by the chef, expediters track everything so orders flow in and out of the kitchen smoothly and efficiently.
Server and bartender panels
We want to create two small groups – one of bartenders and another of front-of-the house staff. These groups would take part in occasional discussions about different aspects of their jobs. Ideally we could do a two-hour recording session that would provide material for a few months of episodes so the time commitment would be minimal. If you’re interested in participating, let us know via our contact page.
