Breakfast Chef - in Greece – Full Season (May ‘23 to October ‘23)
Our kitchen team provide an array of interesting varied meal options to suit all tastes, across three busy restaurants focusing mainly on a mix of Mediterranean and Modern European cuisine. We also host a number of weekly events, including a Food Festival with ‘street food’ style pop ups and family feasts.
We are looking for a talented chef to focus on our increasingly popular breakfasts and deliver everything they prepare to the high standard that our guests have come to expect. They need to be self-motivated, able to manage their time effectively and have impeccable attention to detail. Our chefs are team players looking for a challenge who love what they do and are excited to share it with others.
The Club is home to two busy restaurants: The Terraces seats around 80 covers with a menu featuring Mediterranean inspired dishes and Tasi provides an informal setting with bistro-style dishes which can be enjoyed with a bottle of wine and a stunning view of the Ionian sea. The Peli Deli Kitchen offers a laid back alternative to our busy club restaurants where our guests can enjoy simple food, done well and is a just a two minute drive away.
Breakfast is a balance of healthy options and old favourites served in Tasi. With more and more guests coming to the club earlier in the day and joining us for breakfast, we are looking for someone who can be dedicated to this. They will be responsible for ensuring all preparation is done, managing service and cooking up every dish to a consistently high standard. There will be plenty of opportunity to get involved with the rest of operation – assisting with lunch service and evening events from time to time.
Throughout the low season we also host our Guest Chef Series. Now in it’s fifth year, accomplished chefs join us each week working directly with our kitchen team to showcase their talent and produce a delicious and exciting menu to dazzle foodie fans, staff and guests alike. In previous years we have be joined by Ellis Barrie, Jackson Boxer, Neil Rankin, Tom Brown, James Cochran, Romy Gill, Tim Siadatan and Gill Meller, to name a few.
This is the perfect position for self-motivated early-risers who can work independently and who are comfortable working in an open kitchen and having interaction with guests.
