PART-TIME ITALIAN CHEF REQUIRED – CHELSEA

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Italian Private Chef to work on a permanent part-time basis for an international family of four in their family home in Chelsea, London. Responsible for food shopping, menu planning and meal prep, you will be exceptionally organised and work in a fast and efficient manner, ensuring that high standards of hygiene and cleanliness are adhered to at all times.
 
The family enjoy a healthy, varied and where possible organic diet, and especially enjoy Italian cuisine. Family-style meals are preferred and though quite casual, the standard of food expected is extremely high. From time to time, the family might entertain and expect a more formal style of service, so high-end service skills would be advantageous.
 
Working Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, you will prepare lunch and dinner for the family, as well as preparing meals for the following day which can be stored in the fridge and heated up by the family the next day. Occasionally, you might also be asked to prepare breakfast, so some degree of flexibility is 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 child-friendly meals 
- Preparing and storing meals for next-day use
- 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 when required
- Occasionally serving meals in a more formal setting when the family are entertaining
 
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 Italian cuisine
- Strong technical ability is essential
- Hands-on approach
- Strict on hygiene procedures
- Highly organised, motivated, and proactive
- Trustworthy, reliable, and discreet
- Excellent checkable references
