Pastry Chef – The Kensington Hotel, LondonPastry Chef
The Kensington, London
The Kensington is set in one of London's most desirable locations, surrounded by museums and walking distance from the shops of South Kensington and Knightsbridge. A luxury hotel with an ambience reminiscent of a private members club, 150 individually designed rooms and suites, Town House restaurant and K Bar, make it the perfect hidden spot.
The Doyle Collection
The Doyle Collection is a carefully curated collection of eight Irish family-owned luxury and urban hotels located centrally in London, Dublin, Washington DC, Cork and Bristol. What binds our hotels together is the Doyle service ethos - a real warmth and thoughtfulness.
We are delighted that the Doyle Collection has been listed as one of the Best Large Workplaces by Great Place to Work for four years running; 2017, 2018, 2019 and again in 2020.
As our Pastry Chef you will lead a team of Pastry CDP's and Commis Chefs in the Kitchen to head up the Pastry kitchen of our luxury London hotel. With an award-winning afternoon tea on offer, we are looking for a flexible and dedicated senior Chef who enjoys working as part of a team.
Within this role, you will be tasked with delivering fine dining style plated desserts for lunch and dinner, an elegant afternoon tea service, as well as conference and events catering. In addition to the day to day responsibilities within the pastry kitchen, you will take on afternoon tea menu development as a project to develop further in 2020.
This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic and bright individual with strong organisational skills, and a real passion for fresh and seasonal products. Our ideal candidate will currently be working in a rosette or Michelin star restaurant or with a Hotel background.
