Google Inc., a company that had long employed the former cook for one of the world's most famous rock bands to keeps its employees well fed, launched a worldwide search on Thursday for two new chefs.
The Internet search company, which proudly boasts of fine cuisine free to employees, announced its hunt for culinary excellence in the loudest possible way -- by issuing a news release on the job openings.
Charlie Ayers, who once cooked for the Grateful Dead but then earned valuable stock options as an early employee with Google, left in May to start his own restaurants. The company was so pleased with his culinary work that it even introduced him to investment analysts visiting in February.
The company said the chefs would oversee menus "from vegan entrees to pad Thai, grilled burgers, and wood-fired pizza-all while using organic ingredients whenever possible."
Google said it would sponsor a cook-off between its top four applicants before the two hires would start preparing offerings which in the past have included "sweet potato jalapeno bisque with corn" or "grilled petite New York sirloins seasoned with Creole spices." Source
