A family is looking for a cook (or two cook friends) who enjoys being around children and working in a relaxed family environment. To work for the whole period - 1st July to 31st August 2019, or alternatively have two different cooks (one to do first 4 weeks, another to do the other 4 weeks so they have a variety). If it is two cook friends who want to be working together in the South of France for the summer, then this would be for the whole duration.
The clients have two young boys aged 3 and 18 months, and they will also have friends and family visiting. They enjoy fresh seasonal, locally sourced food and one member of the family is gluten free and dairy free, so the cook must be used to cooking for different diet requirements.
You must be able to drive to do the shopping and will be required to do: Lunch, early kids supper and adult dinner (possibly breakfast but relaxed), cooking, shopping, serving and clearing tables, keeping kitchen clean and tidy, menu planning and being very friendly to have around. They enjoy relaxed, informal platters of food as opposed to very intricate formal plated food. Numbers will go up to 8 adults and 6 children when they have guests who will come and go. There will be a nanny there to help when they are very busy and they are a very relaxed family, all happy to muck in when needed.
Food styles they enjoy: Donna Hay, Hemsley and Hemsley, Ottolenghi, Daylesford, Nigel Slater, Hugh F-W - Bit of a mixture. Someone with nutritional and health knowledge also useful.
One day off a week.
Accommodation provided in a two bed apartment in a nearby village.
Salary will depend on experience.
