The family enjoys a balanced and varied diet; and you will need to be skilled in preparing vegan plant-based dishes, and be creative to keep the menus fresh and exciting. The family dine out in restaurant regularly so the focus will be on preparing beautifully plated and exciting family style dishes. You will be responsible for preparing daily menus, shopping and cooking, and keeping your kitchen areas clean, tidy and well maintained.
Your working schedule will be Monday to Friday 11.00am to 21.00pm. During this time, you will be preparing a vegan plant-based lunch, followed by snacks for the children when they return from school, and a family style dinner. Staff lunch is required for 4 people.
