Valente’s is looking for a reliable, responsible, and skilled sous chef to be our second in command. A culinary degree is not necessary but a candidate who has paid dues and worked the way up the line is preferred. Experience at upscale and authentic Italian establishment(s) also preferred. As the sous, you will be responsible for making sure the kitchen and all of its components run smoothly.
Valente’s is looking for a passionate pastaio/pastaia who is dedicated to the craft of mastering artisan pasta. We are looking for the next Sabrina Botteri, someone whose growth we can foster in the journey towards pasta making mastery.
As a pasta maker, you will be responsible for creating the various artisan shapes and cuts of pasta we will sell in our store. These varietals will include — but not be limited to stuffed pasta (i.e. caramelle, ravioli, agnolotti, culurgiones, etc). Your job will also involve making the filling for these varietals, which may include cooking on the line.
You will have the opportunity to experiment new ways of making pasta dough using different ingredients (i.e. squid ink, beet, etc.), or combining different doughs together into one. You will also be able to use our stone mill to grind berries fresh to make wheat for the dough.
Your pasta will be sold fresh from our store, frozen, wholesale, and/or used in our grab-and-go dishes.
Valente’s is looking for a reliable, independent, motivated, and experienced sales person to manage our farmers market booth.
You would attend 3-4 markets per week including Rittenhouse Square (Saturdays, 9 – 3) and Palmyra (Thursdays, 4 – 8). There would be an opportunity to pick up additional hours for special events (i.e. Arts & Crafts Festival), and perhaps hours in the shop.
