Description :

Spend your summer in the wild and scenic South Fork valley at Double Diamond X Ranch, a premier guest ranch in Yellowstone country. The Ranch is 35 miles southwest of the western town of Cody, Wyoming, and 22 miles east of Yellowstone Park.

Double Diamond X Ranch is looking for a Cook/Kitchen Manager to lead the DDX farm-to-table dining program. This program integrates local, organic agriculture into a scratch kitchen environment and relies heavily on ranch-grown organic heirloom produce and herbs, and locally-raised organic meats. The Head Cook/Kitchen Manager is responsible for all aspects of daily food preparation and service for our guests, including breakfast, dinner, and event catering. Responsibilities typically include harvest and preparation of produce, preparation of house-made dressings and sauces, quality preparation of high-volume items such as steak and specialty burgers, tracking of ingredient needs, creative use of freshly available ingredients, quality control and hygienic standards, equipment maintenance, and top-quality service and guest attendance. Other responsibilities include preparation of sack lunches for guests participating in guided activities, curing or cold-smoking of meats or cheeses, and preparation of fresh breads and pasta.

This is a seasonal position extending from late-May through mid-September, with the possibility of yearly renewal. Private room, all utilities, competitive salary along with tips, and access to ranch activities such as horseback riding, hiking, and fly-fishing in a spectacular Rocky Mountain setting are provided. The ideal applicant for this position is someone who considers him – or – herself to be a passionate cook, energetic, friendly, and outgoing with a good sense of humor, and who has interest in being a part of a true farm-to-table operation.
