Chef wanted for high-end plein aire painting workshop in Provence.
Julian Merrow Smith

We are looking for a chef (and maybe an assistant?) to prepare and serve two meals a day for us for one week (25-31 May 2024) for a painting workshop held in a beautiful manor house with pool near the village of Blauvac in Provence.

We have an International clientèle of between 12-14 people who are out painting poppies and lavender all day and delighted to come back to continue their experience of Provence through the colours, scents and tastes of local cuisine.

We can help you source everything as we have lived here for 20 years and can direct you to the local markets, organic butcher, bio cop-op and better supermarkets etc.

Lunch is usually a buffet selction of bright and healthy salads (usually vegetarian), and dinner a two or three course family style meal with either fish or meat. We are passionate about locally produced and organic produce, and minimum waste. Mediterranean and Middle Eastern tastes are preferred, healthy and not too heavy.

Chef must be clean as we are in someone's home.

We can provide a rental car from the airport (Marseille) and simple accomodation in a twin room. We run four workshops a year and have been using a wonderful Ballymaloe chef, Alasdair Gill, for years but he is unfortunately not available for this particular week. If the partnership works well it might lead to more regular work. Very happy to talk on the phone to discuss more details.
