Since March they have been based almost exclusively in Devon, but they plan on returning to London and a more usual routine during 2021.However, the candidate will need to be flexible as regards location for the first few months of the role, as there may be more time in Devon than would usually be the case. DutiesThe main requirement is to produce healthy meals for the family, who have various dietary requirements.  The chef will therefore work closely with the family’s fitness consultant, to help family members achieve their health objectives.  The family entertain frequently and so there will also be opportunities (particularly in Devon and France) to cook for lunch/dinner parties and other social events.The chef may also be asked to produce meals for the rest of the staff team.In London the chef will work in the family kitchen (which the family use rarely).In Devon they will be involved in designing and equipping a new chef’s kitchen and may also use the family kitchen (knowledge of Aga cooking useful).CandidatesThis role would suit a chef with a strong interest in nutrition and healthy eating (including calorie counting to control total intake).The ideal candidate will have experience working in a private family home, and an understanding of the dynamics of working in a staffed household.
