Job Details

Food and wine is very much the focus of a Morgan Jupe holiday. We take great pride in providing a memorable dining experience for each of our guests and we always use the freshest, best quality produce available.

We recruit only the most dedicated and enthusiastic chefs who have a real passion for food and a desire to share that with our guests. 

The Role ... 

The role of the chef is to organise the smooth running of the chalet kitchen and to serve superior quality meals with emphasis on fresh produce and excellent presentation.

    • submitting weekly menu plans and writing up the daily menu to present to guests each morning;

    • catering for special dietary requirements;

    • pairing wines with starters, main courses and desserts (where appropriate).

  • Managing stock and budgets

    • shopping and placing butcher orders;

    • carefully managing stock levels and controlling wastage;

    • working within a generous but precise budget, submitting weekly accounts.

  • Maintaining exceptional hygiene standards in the kitchen and ensuring any maintenance issues with kitchen equipment are resolved quickly and efficiently.

  • Meals that are provided by the chef are as follows:

    • Breakfast - a choice of continental & cooked breakfast (to order);

    • Afternoon tea - homemade cakes and/or savoury snacks (prepared each morning);

    • Children’s supper - a two course meal (main and dessert) usually served before 6pm;

    • Dinner - a three or four course gastronomic menu with paired wines;

    • Canapés (first and last evening), hot and cold pre dinner nibbles and cheese boards.

  • Hosting the guests when appropriate and presenting each course of the evening meal.

  • Liaising with the management on a regular basis to discuss any changing guest requirements.

  • Be able to work autonomously and contribute to developing the product we offer;
