RESPONSIBILITIES OF YOUR CHEF
The following is a list of typical responsibilities that you can expect when you hire The Chalet Chef. These responsibilities will vary depending on the type of job, the number of guests and of course any other specific requests. However, unless otherwise stated your chef will typically be responsible for the following:
- Planning menus (liaising with you and agreeing menu plans)
- Managing special dietary requests
- Food provisioning/shopping
- Keeping kitchen spotlessly clean
- Washing up used pots, pans and utensils
- Adhering to Food Safety Standards and any other relevant codes of practice
- Emptying rubbish created from service during and at the end of every day
Our chefs will bring their own knives to a job and will do their best to bring any specific equipment that that they need. However please bear in mind that certain food requests are dependent on certain equipment being available and the chef may not always be able to bring the relevant equipment with them.
All of our chefs will take time to discuss any dietary requirements. They will then prepare a menu plan in accordance with your groups needs, should they differ from our suggestions. We take pride in using local ingredients that are in season where possible, so please allow us flexibility to use fresh produce we find at market; you will end up with some of the best tasting dishes, even if you have not planned for them!
We encourage all our chefs to avoid wasting food, however we know that in some circumstances it’s difficult to avoid wastage. We ask that you allow your chef to be creative and resourceful in using up ingredients.
The use of The Chalet Chef during your holiday is strictly dinner service based. Our staff are not there to clean your chalet and are not expected to help in any other way, except to host your delicious dinners in the comfort of your holiday home.
