Chalet Chef / Host - Meribel

Job Details

Are you looking for a chalet role which gives plenty of ski time, a chance to meet a variety of interesting people, work in a small team and ski in the one of the World's finest resorts?  Come and join Fish&Pips team this winter!

"Fish and Pips 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, come and join the Fish & Pips team at a Chalet Chef/Host next winter! 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:

  • Three  Valley season pass
  • Generous live out staff accommodation
  • £245 per week
  • More skiing time than most - up to 6 days per week
  • Free reign in the kitchen with a generous food budget
  • 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.  We are looking for someone with solid cooking experience and experience front of house, or perhaps you have run a chalet before? You will be looking after a small chalet with just 6 guests and providing all the food and hosting duties for the guests.  There will be assistance with the daily housekeeping but you will need to have lots of energy and the ability to multitask.  The food side of the riole willl be a little simpler then in other chalets so we are able to consider chef/hosts with less restaurant experience.  We will provide training and menu support but you will need to be able to cook a high end menu in a short amount of time, and be able to juggle plating up with serving drinks and hosting the guests. 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 but lots of support will be provided as needed.  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 keep the chalet running smoothly and look after your guests' needs. 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 six 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 Fish&Pips 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.  Hurry, we only have a small number of positions to fill!
