We are looking for chef who is able to show dedication to their work along with the ability to produce food that is tasty, attractive and precisely presented. A wide cooking repertoire is prerequisite, as is a natural love of sourcing wonderful, top quality ingredients, which can be used in healthy and diet conscious dishes.

Candidates must offer flexibility with their hours of work and be able to change their own schedule so that the client's needs are catered - their plans can, and do, change at the last minute! Candidates that come with a calm nature, vivid imagination, and a natural ability to rustle up "something from nothing', with enthusiasm and flair, (rather than a sulk!) would certainly be warmly welcomed!

Candidates must have a formal training, gathered in respected restaurants and private households and must offer longevity in their previous positions along with a career path that is coherent and logical.

This position is Live Out – no accommodation is provided in Banbury.

  • Chef will be primarily cooking for the family, along with serving food and beverages throughout the day.
  • Chef will also oversee planning, preparing and cooking menus for parties and events; so will be required to accurately estimate quantities of ingredients required, based on the number of guests.

 

Candidates must have a very good understanding of Nutrition and what Healthy living entails. We are looking for someone who is passionate about food and the ingredients used, while showing they are capable of catering for various dietary requirements (including food intolerances and working with health restrictions) while showing they can embrace the restrictions while still being creative. Candidates must be able to step-up-to-the-plate, and cook to a dinner party standard when required, but be happy cooking simple home-styled but healthy family favorites. 

Candidates must have high standards in themselves, and be highly flexible in their approach, showing they can deal with change at short notice. 

The family are very down to earth, and they are nurturing a relaxed home and work environment so there is no room for ego.
