A fantastic opportunity has come up for an experienced Private Chef to support an on-the-go ultra-high net worth family based in Central London, with frequent travel to their homes in Ireland, France, Greece and New York. Our clients are looking for a dynamic individual, passionate about preparing clean, nutritious, yet versatile and creative meals. The ability to adhere to strict dietary requirements whilst producing beautifully presented and delicious meals will be a key skill for this role.

You will mainly be cooking for the two Principals, but should be prepared for larger parties of guests and to cook for the full family of five when the children are home. There is an emphasis on preparing clean meals, with minimal sugar, butter and gluten. However, all dietary requirements will need to be considered when there are more guests present. This is a travelling position, thus requiring a fully flexible, mature Chef, able to adapt to changing environments and settings.

When based in any of the various homes, you will be responsible for sourcing and purchasing high-quality ingredients, as well as planning a variety of menus for the clients to choose from. The family enjoys entertaining, and you will be required to cater for up to 20 guests at times.

This is a live-out role when based in London, with accommodation provided when travelling to the client’s various homes across Europe and the US.

• Maintaining daily communication with the principals regarding requests for meals and any requirements for the kitchen and/or food preparation
• Grocery shopping and maintaining accounts and budgets, building relationships with local suppliers
• Waste management
• Food quality control
• Managing stock-take

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior experience as a Private Chef working for high-net-worth clients
• Fully flexible to travel up to 50% of the time
• Ability to prepare delicious meals whilst adhering to dietary requirements
• Good knowledge of ingredients and where to source the best produce
• Strong technical ability is essential
• Hands-on approach
