Fulltime Private Chef: For a family living in Amsterdam Center (Grachtengordel), we are looking for an all-round Private Chef to prepare delicious lunch and dinner daily. The chef will mainly cook for the family at home, which will usually be 2 adults and 2 children, surrounded by occasional invited guests. This is a full-time position employed by the family.
The family works with a team of full-time (international) staff. As the chef for this family, you will work closely with the Personal Assistant, nannies and cleaning staff. There is an informal and friendly working atmosphere at the family, with lots of contact between them.
As a chef you will take care of the daily healthy meals, the family is open to a varied cuisine but generally likes French or Italian. There is room for improvisation, trying out recipes is appreciated and the family is happy to come up with suggestions.
The family has two children aged 8 and 2, and one new born baby. One of the two nannies is always present for the children. The parents always eat with the children whenever possible.
Days off are alternated with the Personal Assistant. The shifts are coordinated well in advance so these are known in advance. Sometimes you will have days off on weekends and sometimes during the week. During school holidays, the family almost always goes on vacation. When the family is on vacation the chef does not work. So during the school holidays you are free. This also applies to summer vacations (usually 4 weeks). When the parents eat outside the house, the nannies cook for the children and you are free.
For special dinners, the family will hire an outside chef or invite a restaurant to cook.
You will start the day after breakfast, prepare lunch and run errands for dinner, then prepare dinner. You will occasionally help the Personal Assistant with tasks in and around the household such as bringing mail or other shopping for the family. For all other the other tasks other staff is present.
The chef also makes sure that the refrigerator is stocked with fresh products from the butcher, greengrocer, caterer, etc.
In the morning, breakfast is provided on the table in hotel set up. This is usually prepared by the PA. After breakfast the Chef takes over the kitchen.
