Dandelion ChocolateDandelion Chocolate Website
Dandelion Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in San Francisco’s Mission District. We make chocolate from only two ingredients, cocoa beans and cane sugar, and travel to origins as often as we can to build good, trusting relationships with the producers who grow and ferment the beans we buy. Every chocolate bar we make starts with the bean, and now we’re looking for a Pastry Assistant at our 16th Street Factory to help us showcase our single-origin chocolate in our drinks and pastries in our San Francisco cafés.
About the Job
Our pastries are inspired by the distinct flavor profiles of the cocoa beans we source, which means our recipes are continually evolving within a unique creative constraint. You will learn each of our recipes in detail and support the café’s changing needs by making new batches of drinks and pastries. Our executive pastry chef, Lisa Vega (formerly of Gary Danko), helms the kitchen and leads recipe development. Every day in the kitchen starts early with the morning bake and ends with preparation of batters and doughs for the next day’s bake. We are looking for a pastry assistant who is excited about contributing to our beverage and pastry production and who takes delight working with a well-run, creative, and drama-free team. We especially welcome professionals who have the intention to commit to the role for at least a year. This position can be part-time or full-time and starts at $23/hour. Weekend availability is required.
You're a master of consistency and refinement -- thorough, attentive, and precise with your work. Our kitchen’s success depends upon how well we communicate with each other, take care of our own stations and messes, and keep our eyes on time-sensitive things like sugar on the burner. From preparing cookie dough and marshmallows for the upcoming day to refilling our inventory of chocolate drinks, you willingly jump into the task with an eye for detail. We are looking for someone who is a good communicator, punctual, kind, fastidious, and eager to learn.
