BE A CULINARIAN - Get involved in the Houston Food & Drink Scene as a Food Tour Guide
Are you a Culinarian?
A Culinarian is a tour guide, a host, an expert, a coordinator, an ambassador of local food and drinks, and a storyteller of history and architecture. A Culinarian wants to show off their city’s food and drink scene, as well as its culture to others.
They are comfortable in front of groups, engaging people in conversation, and have the intuition to simultaneously work with guests and restaurants to provide a fantastic experience. They adapt to their audience and have good sense of humor.
Taste Houston Food Tours offers public and private food tours both during the week and on weekends. Groups range from locals wanting to explore their city, to visitors, and corporate groups. We are looking for outgoing and passionate Culinarians to lead a variety of walking and at times motorcoach based tours throughout historic neighborhoods in and around the greater Houston area.
The Food Tours you will lead combine the city’s history, culture, and architecture with its indigenous food and drink. As the expert and host, you will share information about the history and culture of the many areas that the group travels through.
While at the various venues, you will assist the guests whenever needed in order to ensure a great experience, while teaching them about the food and drinks they are enjoying.
This is a part time position where flexible schedules are a huge advantage, as we often run Food Tours throughout the week, including days, nights, weekdays and weekends.
Full time opportunities are available for those who excel and offer other relevant and business skills.
We offer a comprehensive training program to ensure you possess the knowledge needed to run culinary tours and events with confidence.
When responding, please send a resume as well as a Cover Letter describing why you are interested in these open positions.
