Cuyama Buckhorn Jobs 2020

Description :


WHERE: Cuyama Buckhorn in Cuyama, California

4923 Primero St., New Cuyama, CA 93254

Cuyama Buckhorn is a timeless roadside inn & restaurant in the heart of California’s high desert in Santa Barbara County, where community, locally-inspired food, and artistry flourish.

The property is undergoing a major revitalization under new ownership. Once complete the property will function as an intimate resort with 21 updated guestrooms, a pool, lobby and plenty of indoor and outdoor event spaces, in addition to The Buckhorn Restaurant, Bar & Coffee, which are currently open to locals and travelers alike.

The Buckhorn Restaurant & Bar was originally established in 1952 as a roadside stop for weary travelers to enjoy a meal in good company. More than 60 years later, The Buckhorn has become a historic establishment nestled in the Hidden Valley of Enchantment, featuring treasured favorites such as Santa Maria tri-tip grilled on our historic Red Oak grill.

While The Buckhorn will always offer nostalgic classics, we have a new focus on connecting our food and beverage offerings to the local bounty of our valley. We offer thoughtfully crafted menus, in partnership with our neighboring farms, ranches and wineries, to create elevated and unexpected farm-to-table comfort food that everyone can celebrate.

We are looking for a passionate and creative Farm-to-Table Chef to assume full responsibility for all facets of our kitchen.

The successful candidate will be low-ego, talented, and possess strong leadership skills with previous experience designing menus and an extensive training background. This candidate should be willing and eager to create their own approachable and exciting culinary experience in a remote, beautiful high desert community.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about rural, small town living and who is ready to relocate for a new and exciting adventure. Someone who loves the outdoors, agriculture, nature activities and embraces a remote lifestyle would fit well in Cuyama, as our valley is filled with amazing natural landmarks including, Carrizo Plain National Monument, Los Padres National Forest, amazing campgrounds and stargazing, as well as plenty of incredible local farms and ranches.
