FREELANCE PRIVATE CHEF FOR UHNW AD-HOC ROLE

We have an exciting opportunity for world-class freelance Private Chef to work on an ad-hoc basis (roughly 1or 2 times per month) for a lovely ultra-high net worth family in Central London. Versatility, creativity and the ability to adhere to strict dietary requirements whilst producing beautifully presented and delicious meals are all key skills for this role.

The family eat a very healthy organic diet, avoiding dairy/sugar/wheat/gluten - the style of food is predominantly vegan and vegetarian, but they do eat a small amount of meat and fish. One of the principals follows a strict diet for medical reason and so the ability to adapt menus is essential. The family love Persian and modern Indian cuisines, as well as fresh and healthy British and European tastes.

The chef is required when the family entertain or have dinner parties, so they are looking for a Chef who can produce high-end delicious meals, but is also happy to cater for teenagers. An ad-hoc role, the principals are usually incredibly organised and able to give ample notice of when they will be entertaining and therefore require a Chef – but of course, understand that you may have other commitments so utter flexibility is not required.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE, BUT NOT BE LIMITED TO:
• Menu planning in line with dietary requirements and the principals’ preferences
• Preparing beautifully presented and delicious meals with accordance to the principal’s tastes
• Happy also to prepare teenager-friendly meals
• Food ordering and liaising with the housekeeper on deliveries
• Sourcing high quality, and where possible locally sourced, ingredients
• Maintaining hygiene standards to the highest level
• Food quality control
• Liaising with PA and principal on event details

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA
• Prior experience as a Private Chef working for high-net-worth clients
• Ability to prepare delicious meals whilst adhering to dietary requirements
• Experience of cooking for health-focussed diets
• Good knowledge of ingredients and where to source the best produce
• Strong technical ability is essential
• Hands-on approach
• Strict on hygiene procedures
• Highly organised, motivated and proactive
• Trustworthy, reliable and discreet
• Dog-friendly
• Excellent checkable references

If this sounds of interest, and you meet the essential criteria, please get in touch to find out more or apply within.
