An excellent and flexible chef is needed to cook for the Principal of a large estate in Berkshire. He enjoys light and simple Mediterranean style food but he is looking for good quality. As you will not be required to cook every day, you will need to be willing to undertake light house management/service duties. Additionally, you will be required to be at the London residence at least one day per week and be willing to travel abroad with the Principal occasionally. You should be a confident cook of fresh healthy meals, the family enjoy a healthy lifestyle and eat light dishes, mainly based on Mediterranean style of eating to include lots of fresh vegetables, salads, fish and meat. Ideally you will feel comfortable to cook for a small informal dinner party. You will care for the kitchen, have responsibility for provisioning and household shopping.
Ultimately we are looking for an all-rounder who is happy to muck in wherever needed! This is a small team and really nice environment to work in.
The house is used as a weekend residence as the Principal stays in London during the week.
Partners and pets cannot be accommodated.
Due to the location you do need to drive and have your own car. Previous yacht experience is preferred, as well as longevity in previous roles.
