Family Chefs & Cooks Staffing

Family Chefs have to be used to accommodating the needs of everyone, from younger children, to hungry teenagers, to the more sophisticated tastes of the older members of the family. Our Family Chefs may need to work around the differing schedules of the whole family and also bear in mind any allergies and intolerances, or specialist menus, styles, or diets required by the family.

A Family Chef’s duties will invariably involve

  • Cooking healthy family meals
  • Breakfast, lunch, children’s tea and dinner
  • Freezer filling
  • Packed lunches
  • Catering for parties
  • Home baking, and so on

Chefs will be used to managing budgets, handling accounts with local suppliers, sourcing the best fresh ingredients, maintaining pantries and supplies, keeping kitchen organised and so forth.
