Alfred Ehrlich

Kitchen Maestro provides personnel consulting services to the hospitality industry. We specialize in recruiting culinary talent: executive chefs, sous chefs and pastry chefs.

To fulfill our client's needs in this highly competitive labor market, we now conduct searches for operations and front of the house management: directors, general managers, sommeliers and industry sales professionals.

Our searches are tailored to achieve client's goals while assisting candidates in their professional development. Kitchen Maestro's approach to personnel consulting is intelligent, effective and creative.

We never lose sight of the fundamentals of good business: honesty, integrity and empathy for our clients and candidates.

I found working with Alfred has been greatly helpful to my business. He is very knowledgeable and well connected in the industry.
