The Team

The head chef running the show is well-respected among his peers in the industry. He has appeared on TV and is a regular at public events. However, he is still approachable, calm and loves to guide and mentor his staff members.

The team here is solid and experienced with 16 chefs on the roster. The kitchen is nicely spaced out as a U-shape to flow with prep and service. There’s plenty of quality appliances and top of the range equipment to play with.

The Role

As chef de partie, you can also contribute to the menus and specials if you are brimming with ideas. You will also get a chance to learn plenty of new techniques and skills.

The restaurant is usually quieter during winter so the hours will be less. On average, you will work 50-55 hours a week (2 doubles and 3 singles).

There’s tips for the kitchen team, which the head chef puts in a common piggy bank. When it is full, he will take out the whole team for a nice dinner and other outings.
