THE OPPORTUNITY

Our Cooks take pride in preparing and serving Yelluh Meat's delicious food. They know that in order to do this right, they need a clean and organized work area. By consistently following the proper recipes and procedures, and adhering to Yelluh Meat’s high standards regarding food preparation, cleaning and sanitation, teamwork and hospitality, they help to ensure that the Yelluh Meat guest experience is always the best it can be. Cooks get to learn about and work at a variety of stations: Breadfruit Bowl Prep, Hot & Cold Serving, Food Prep, Roasting Breadfruits, Expo, and making Tacos.
