The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation invites applications for a full-time seasonal Culinary Apprentice to work with us for the 2017 academic season at Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright's Wisconsin home and studio. Located in the Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin, Taliesin is the summer home of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Apprenticeship runs from end of May through beginning of November, 2017, and includes a stipend plus room and board.
Frank Lloyd Wright established the Taliesin Fellowship in 1932 to provide a total learning environment that would foster responsible, creative, and cultured human beings. Apprentices, as members of the Fellowship were called, gained experience not only in architecture but also in construction, farming, gardening, and cooking, and the study of nature, music, art, and dance. From its origins Taliesin has served as a living, working, educational space, forming a creative and diverse community of professional architects, artists, faculty, students, and staff. Together with the Taliesin Farms and Vegetable Garden, the Hillside Kitchen serves to showcase the principles of Wright’s original vision for Taliesin through the integration of farming and gardening into the academic, cultural, and communal day-to-day activities on the 600-acre property in Spring Green, Wisconsin.
Under the mentorship of the Chef/Kitchen Manager, the Taliesin Culinary Apprentice will participate in Monday-Saturday meal planning and preparation for students, faculty, and guests of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture; staff and volunteers of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Taliesin Preservation; and the community of Taliesin Fellowship residents. With the unique opportunity to learn from both farmers and the chef, the apprentice will see how and where food is grown; learn methods for preserving and canning; and help plan and prepare fresh meals based on seasonality and local availability alongside the School’s students. The apprentice will have the opportunity to live, work, and learn at a one-of-a-kind non-profit educational organization; to participate in cultural opportunities offered onsite; and to play an active role in a dynamic and vibrant community.
