We have an immediate vacancy for a reliable Private Chef to cater for a family at their home in Oxfordshire.
Duties will include
Breakfast, lunch, preparing an evening meal and supporting the day to day running of the kitchen (including sourcing and purchasing kitchen supplies and equipment)in collaboration with the current Chef. You will also be responsible for liaising with suppliers and taking care of grocery shopping.
You will mainly be cooking for the family, serving food and beverages throughout the day.
You will also be in charge of planning menus for parties and events - it would therefore be useful if you have the ability to accurately estimate quantities of food based on the number of guests.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about food and capable of producing fresh, healthy meals.
You must have high standards and be flexible in your approach as things can change at short notice. The family are very down to earth and there is no room for ego.
We are looking for someone with a passion for healthy living, experience of catering for various dietary requirements (including food intolerances) and can be creative using both luxurious menus and cooking at a more simple but healthy level.
Experience working in a private household, working for high net worth individuals or running their own restaurant is advantageous but not essential.
We would like someone with a strong work ethic, and whose CV shows longevity and loyalty to previous roles and employers. The interview will include a trial day at the family home.
