Family of seven (mom, dad, and five children, ranging in age from 10 to 5 months) seeks creative female chef with a passion for baking.  Knowledge of pâtisserie, cakes, breads, etc. essential. Own sourdough starter a plus.

Responsibilities include:

  • menu-planning (the family is adventurous and loves to try new dishes … they own a tortilla press and a sushi mat) 
  • grocery-shopping at nearby Waitrose (with online ordering of bulk and hard-to-find ingredients)
  •  preparation of lunch, dinner, & dessert (plus, breakfast to be eaten the next morning and packed lunches for the four school-age children).  On Fridays, extra food is prepared for weekends & bank holidays.
  •  cleaning / organization of kitchen; inventory of ingredients / household items (such as washing-up liquid, etc.)
  •  laying of table & clearing up afterwards (dinner dishes will be done the next morning since the chef serves the meal and leaves; breakfast dishes will also be washed and kitchen tidied before lunch prep begins)

The chef must be able to cope with a lively, messy household where paper airplanes are flown and glasses of milk are knocked over.  The kitchen is a typical size for a central London flat (small but cheerful with two windows and half-glass balcony doors). 

In terms of holidays, it’s important that the chef not take long holidays during term time when the children are in school.  Ideally, holidays are coordinated as much as possible with the family so that everyone is away at the same time.
