One job listing in San Francisco offered $8,000 to $12,000 a month with a requirement that the chef is "able to deliver tasty, creative meals free from dairy, wheat, gluten, sugar, and salt."
Another listing for the Silicon Valley suburb of Atherton had a salary range of $104,000 to $170,000, depending on experience, and a long list of requirements, including "spatial awareness" and the "ability to distinguish, with a degree of accuracy, the differences or similarities in intensity and quality of flavors or aromas."
A different family had Porterkhamsy living with them in an $80,000-a-month rental unit and driving their rented Lamborghini.
The family, Porterkhamsy said, was "afraid to drive the vehicle but wanted to go for rides in it. So I spent two days just driving random people around in the Lamborghini."
NDAs be damned, we need a Private Chefs of Silicon Valley reality series.
