Independent chef

Are you creative, a team player and a king/queen in the kitchen? Can you cook the most delicious dishes? Do happy guests bring you satisfaction, whilst unhappy guests are seen as a challenge to ensure they leave happy? Are you someone who works hard but at the same time manages to keep a good atmosphere in the kitchen?

We are looking for you!

From mice en place to a beautifully dished plate, you feel at home in the kitchen and can work your magic! Taking responsibility for your own department in the kitchen is no problem for you.

When starting your day, you are ready for the beautiful chaos. You great your colleagues in the kitchen and wave hello to the busy bar/service staff. You check with the chef with mice en place still have to be prepared. Are there any big reservations or other details you need to know? The tasks of the day are divided amongst the colleagues. Together with your colleagues you serve the lunch dishes in record time and then prepare for the busy evening rush. Amidst the rush, you make a joke with the dishwasher, compliment your colleague with a nice dish and ask the waiter whether all guests are satisfied. Your shift is flying by!
