**F&P are reccruiting for experienced Chefs to join our team for the 2023-24 winter season in Meribel.**
"F&P pushed me out of my comfort zone in a way previous jobs had not, and helped me develop through each season into a chef comfortable on any section in any kitchen." - Duncan, F&P Chalet Chef 2012-2015
If you are looking for a chef position that will look great on your CV, gives you plenty of ski time, a chance to explore your culinary skills, work in a small team and ski in one of the finest ski resorts in the World - Meribel in the heart of the Three Valleys - come and join the F&P team as a Chalet Chef for winter 2023-24! We are fanatical about food. We have brought out our own cookbook and proudly won The Times Chalet Chef award. We are firm believers in looking after your staff and that a happy team makes for happy guests! We therefore think providing the following is essential:
Our Chalet Chef will receive
- Generous live out staff accommodation
- A competitive weekly wage on a CDD French contract - one of the best in the Alps
- More skiing time than most - up to 6 days per week
- 2 full days off per week
- Free rein in the kitchen on your menu design
- Opportunity to work with top chefs from France and the UK
- Numerous other perks you get from working in small team such as ours.
We cater to a high level and strive to wow guests with chalet food that knocks the socks off most. Only employing chefs with restaurant or fine cuisine experience or those with solid training at a reputable cookery school we feel it's important to give you free reign to design your own menu which can change as little or often as you like. Whilst you need to be competent in the kitchen and passionate about food you will also have shop to a budget, cater for all ages and dietary requirements, and keep chalet accounts on a weekly basis and help out in other areas of the chalet. You will have a great deal of guest interaction and also be prepared to cook in an open kitchen. Enthusiasm for skiing or snowboarding or wanting to learn is essential. As a proactive member of the team, you will prepare a full breakfast, afternoon tea, canapés and a 4-course evening meal five days per week.
Most importantly we are looking to build a team that works well together both in the chalets and out on the slopes. Years of experience has proved to us that this team work is key to the success not only of F&P but also to your season. We are looking for a hard-working team to maintain our high standards with masses of enthusiasm for the job in hand, a love for the mountains, an eye for detail and a professional attitude. We value our staff hugely as we recognise they are fundamental in the success of our business.If this is a position you are looking for and think we sound like a company you'd like to work with then simply click on the apply button now below to make an online application.
