Throughout my career I have enjoyed leadership positions as a working chef in fine dining, corporate high volume and fast casual establishments, operating hands-on alongside my front and back of the house colleagues. I am always eager to broaden my culinary knowledge and continuously seek to refine my training skills and management proficiency. My expertise spans the gamut from creative product development, menu writing and planning for a broad spectrum of clientele, inventory control and analysis, quality and cost control, safety and sanitation, purchasing, receiving, planning labor effective work schedules, sourcing ingredients, scaling, standardizing and documenting recipes, testing menu items, designing production space for efficient execution, and generating the soft systems and training necessary for consistent and reliable execution. I work effectively across functions by regularly and clearly defining opportunities for improvement and seek win-win solutions.Chef Instructor @ From January 2013 to Present (3 years) Executive Chef and Menu Consultant @ Culinary Consultancy: - menu planning - recipe testing and standardization - quality and cost control - staff training - systems development From October 2009 to January 2015 (5 years 4 months) San Francisco Bay AreaTeaching Excellence Internship - Culinary Arts @ From August 2012 to January 2013 (6 months) Head Chef @ From April 2006 to September 2007 (1 year 6 months) Executive Chef @ From June 1998 to January 2006 (7 years 8 months) Elisabeth Schwarz is skilled in: Culinary, Recipe Testing, Menu Design, FoodWorks Nutrient Analysis, StarChef Recipe Management System, eNutrition, Sysco, Certified ServSafe Instructor and Registered ServSafe Examination Proctor, ServSafe, Recipes, Culinary Skills, Menu Development, Restaurants, Fine Dining, Food, Cuisine
