I am managing a position for a private chef to cook in a Tuscan residence for four months during the Summer of 2019. The estate is located in a stunning part of Tuscany with excellent access to superb local produce. You will be living in a one bedroomed fully furnished apartment that is a short distance from the main residence. A car will be provided for provisioning.
You will need to be extremely skilled in preparing regional Italian cuisine and be expected to utilise the local produce wherever possible. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served daily while the guests are in residence. You will have access to a perfectly maintained vegetable garden that provides seasonal produce for the estate all year round.
You will be working a 6-day week. Family style and fine dining cuisine skills will be required for this position. Your accommodation contains a well-equipped kitchen where you will be able to do the main food preparation. You’ll then finish and serve from the main kitchen in the house.
The estate will be accommodating different guests throughout the four-month period, so you will need to be able to deal with continuously changing preferences and requirements. There will be additional staff to serve your dishes, but you will be encouraged to present your food to the guests and explain what you have created.
