Chef | 6 Months Contract – Yorkshire

£3,300.00 Month (Gross)

 

6 Months Contract | Chef Role Yorkshire Shooting Estate

A chef is required from mid-July to Mid-December to work on a beautiful country estate in the heart of Yorkshire.

The chef must be able cook and present traditional dishes, including game and roasts, along with simpler, well-prepared and carefully presented casual styled dishes, including bistro favourites and casseroles, pies and hearty soups, not forgetting the afternoon tea staples.

Whatever the cooking style, the emphasis must always be on using super quality ingredients, locally sourced whenever possible, which are then used with imagination and flair.

There are expected to be 4 or 5 Family Shoots during the season, along with a number of Paid Shoots, hosting VIP Guests.

All these events require great organisation; chef will need to think ahead, and use the quiet times to prepare properly, as guests will generally number up to 17 people, while Thanksgiving is sometimes as many as 30.

When the property is let to VIP paid guests, it is normal for the chef to work Monday to Friday/Saturday preparing Lunch and Afternoon Tea during rentals.

Whether cooking for family or paying guests, a 5* level of service is expected, albeit that paying guests require a more informal style of service.

 

The schedule of this beautiful and highly respected shooting estate is as follows

  • July: a period of nearly a month to get settled in, with bits and pieces, although  nothing major on the schedule.
  • August: from the 10th, preparing for "the glorious 12th", from which the estate will be very busy with both paid guests and family shoots.
  • September: very busy with paid guests and family shoots.
  • October: occasional paid guests, but no family visits scheduled
  • November: scattered let days, although the end of month is scheduled to be busy with family shoots
  • December: scattered let days finishing up around middle of the month.

 

NB. A Full-time position possible, with pension, bonus and private health.
