(43778) 5th July - 8th August. Assistant Chef required to cater for family at their home in South of France. The family like healthy food to a degree, but would like an innovative and talented chef. They LOVE their food and have been spoilt with a very talented chef for a long time, so they expect the very best for every meal. Excellent food is the requirement here.
Personality is key for this role, they describe their ideal person as having a sunny disposition and a happy and friendly attitude. They like to have family style buffets for each meal, rather than plated courses. They are not formal, they just love fantastic food. In the past they have had chef who specialise in French or Italian cuisine, however they are totally open minded in this respect. The house is 20 mins from some fantastic markets, so they would love someone who will thrive on this and want to go to the markets to find the very best produce.
One of the family follows a gluten free diet and there are a few more dietary requirements, but the family will discuss this with the chosen chef directly. You will be catering for 6 family always, plus occasional guests, but numbers rarely increase beyond 10 people. They do not tend to have parties or anything.
Commitment is paramount for this role. In the past the family have gone through the trial process and then have been let down as the chef accepted a permanent role - they really don’t want this to happen again and would like to make this clear from the offset.
Other staff include: 1 x Laundress, 1 x Housekeeper/cleaner, 1 x gardener/handyman.
Salary: £100 per day
