Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 11, 2008
World-renowned chef David Gilbert has teamed up with Chef2Chef.net Culinary Portal--a chef's practical guide to practically everything--to offer a prestigious internship opportunity to an aspiring culinary artist. The Chef David Gilbert Internship Search (http://www.chef2chef.net/internship/) launched Friday, March 7, 2008.
"I feel that internships are the starting point for most young chefs," Chef Gilbert said. "If they (the intern) have a great experience from day one and learn the techniques and skills they will grow to be great chefs."
The internship will take place at Chef Gilbert's new restaurant in Dallas, TX. The restaurant (yet to be named) is currently under construction, and its much anticipated grand opening is scheduled for summer 2008.
Chef Gilbert knows how to dish out classic favorites made from the finest ingredients. He's well-versed in all things culinary and has cultivated his art both in Europe and across the United States. His worldly experience pays off -- Chef Gilbert blends global aspects and avant-garde innovations into his cooking, creating a cuisine he likes to call "Progressive New American."
"I look for an applicant with passion, personality, creativity, and a relentless drive for perfection," Chef Gilbert says. "It is important for my intern to be articulate and organized and have hobbies other than cooking. I always find a little bit of me in the people I bring on to the team."
Chef Gilbert has a long standing relationship with Chef2Chef.net Culinary Portal; he is well-known to site visitors and forum members for his monthly In the Fire column. The Web site will be accepting applications (http://chef2chef.net/internship/submit_resume.php) on Chef Gilbert's behalf. All applicants must submit their full application (personal information, statement, and resume) before May 1, 2008. Chef Gilbert will screen all applications and make the final decision as to whom he will choose for the internship.
Chef2Chef.net offers user forums, a searchable database of recipes and a comprehensive U.S. directory of top culinary schools and institutes. Culinary students, professional chefs and culinarians can also find the latest food industry news, a job search section and a marketplace for culinary supplies and equipment.
