Sous Chef - Cambridge
Overview At Carluccio's we put enormous care into perfecting our recipes, sourcing great ingredients and training up our kitchen teams so that our customers can enjoy the most delicious Italian food, freshly made every day in every one of our restaurants. What will I do Carluccio's will help you enhance your skills by offering you fantastic support, training and development. Our bespoke induction will teach you everything you need to know about our ingredients, suppliers, recipes, specifications and proven way of doing things. You'll learn alongside fellow chefs in Carluccio's own cook school in Islington, and also work towards an NVQ1 at Westminster Kingsway College (WKC). At the end of your course, you and your fellow chefs will use your new knowledge and skills to cook a 3-course meal from scratch for a grand dinner at which Carluccio's directors and Antonio Carluccio will be present. Benefits include regular training courses at our training academy, Chef of the Year competitions, meals while on duty, a 20% discount on our deli produce and discounts when eating at our restaurants. You'll also be entitled to 28 days' holiday. What will I need You'll therefore need to be an experienced, highly skilled chef, used to working in a busy kitchen cooking fresh food to order, as it will be up to you to ensure that every dish - from focaccia bread to fresh pasta, panna cotta to risotto - is cooked perfectly to our specification, with the utmost dedication to food hygiene and food safety. You'll need to be the sort of person who thrives in a busy kitchen environment: a hard worker, who inspires, encourages and develops the rest of the kitchen team, working closely with, and supporting, the Head Chef and Front of House.
