Additionally, you will lead and present the culinary aspects at customer presentations and build and maintain strong chef to chef relationships with strategic clients.
So, what are we looking for?
Well, you’ll be a trained chef for starters, with flair, creativity and confidence. You’ll have a strong background within the restaurant, foodservice or the food industry and have a recognised culinary certification to underpin this.
