Where do you find a good chef?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Besides word of mouth....where do you recommend looking for an experienced chef.  I am not sure it matters but it would be for a position in NJ. Is Craigslist a good bet?  We sort of need one in a hurry and am trying every avenue.  Got some good suggestions on alternatives here.  Thanks

Have you tried asking some of your local chefs? They may know of someone.

Your biggest competitor is best source . Find out who his chef is and see if he is ready to make a move. This used to be done all the time. Put feelers out with purveyors(salesman)

Check purveyors...sometimes your salesman will have heard that some Chef is looking for work.

Thank you Chefs' Ed, Pete and Ross for the smart advice.  I am including prayers too. ;)
