Demi Chef de Partie - The Glasshouse

Our Glasshouse restaurant is a theatre for food in the heart of the hotel, boasting eight live cooking stations where the chefs will prepare individual dishes to suit our guests’ taste. It’s a celebration of international cuisine, from meat cooked on the robata grill to fresh pasta, salads and speciality Asian and Tandoori delicacies.   As a hotel, we take pride in sourcing our food locally and in fact we have our very own kitchen garden filled with fruit, vegetables and herbs right here on site. 

Joining us as a Demi Chef de Partie, we’ll need you to come with solid experience, a desire for perfection and a good command of classic culinary techniques.  You’ll join a team of determined and imaginative chefs, brimming with artistic flair and expert techniques, who’ll welcome you into the kitchen and show you the ropes.

You’ll work clean and fast, preparing dishes from scratch and providing our guests with taste sensations that will see them returning time and time again.
