The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation invites applications for seasonal Culinary/Kitchen Assistants to work with us for the 2019 summer season at Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright's Wisconsin home and studio. Positions are available for part time seasonal (mid-May through late-October) employment.
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.
Under the mentorship of the Chef/Kitchen Manager, the Taliesin Culinary/Kitchen Assistants will participate in Monday-Saturday meal planning and preparation for students, faculty, and guests of the School of Architecture at Taliesin; staff and of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation; and the community of Taliesin Legacy Fellowship residents. Once a month on Saturdays, the Assistants will also support special events that are arranged by School staff. In all assignments, the Assistants help plan and prepare fresh meals based on seasonality and local availability alongside the School’s students while working and learning at a one-of-a-kind non-profit educational organization and playing an active role in a dynamic and vibrant community.
