Independent Coffee. Curated Discovery.

April 25, 2025.jpg


Part-time, 2 days/wk. 10-20 hours per week. Mid-September through Mid-March. $10-12/hr.

No commercial kitchen experience necessary. You just need a love for learning, cooking, and working happily.

This position will be guided for the first three months, after which you will take the reins and become your own soup master!

Here’s an outline:


You’ll work with the owner to learn how to create

  • stocks

  • bone broths

  • homemade noodles

  • roasted meats

  • roux

  • herb drying/rehydrating

  • and all-things soup from scratch.

We’ll focus on creating cafe classics like French Onion and Broccoli Cheese, but also on soups with international flavor, ayurvedic properties, and alternative recipes to accommodate food sensitivities.


For the second half of the apprenticeship, you’ll be responsible for handling the creation of our daily soups on your own. To end your time, you will create and execute a week-long series of gumbos, stews, and soups to celebrate the spirit of NOLA during Mardi Gras. It will be your masterpiece!


Are you excited about soup?

This position is perfect for someone seeking part-time, daytime work during weekdays. We are open to scheduling daytime hours around a school or work schedule, but do require a degree of consistency in scheduling.  

This position would be awesome for a culinary student (or a university student who has always wanted to learn), someone with part-time work looking to make some money doing creative and tasty things, someone with a cooking blog that wants to explore soup, a person looking to re-enter the workforce, or anyone that has always wanted to learn kitchen basics. Think of it as getting paid to learn!

As always, we are an equal opportunity employer. We don’t discriminate against age, nationality, ethnicity, religion, or anything else. Our main concern is that you’re a good person with a passion to learn.
