Description

With as many as four different outlets producing dishes at any given time we are looking for an experienced Sous Chef to support our Head Chef in the challenging role of leading the team in what is a challenging yet extremely rewarding role. Producing quality dishes, our chefs are team players looking for a challenge who love what they do and are excited to share it with our guests. With the majority of our guests spending most of their day in the club, food is an integral part of their holiday. Our kitchen team provide an array of exciting varied meal options to suit all tastes, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Key responsibilities

  • Assist the Head Chef with day to day running of the restaurant and food service areas
  • Liaise with purchasing companies for food orders in the absence of the Head Chef
  • Maintain profit margins on food
  • Contribute to the creation of new menus and dishes that cater to guests of all ages and consider different tastes and dietary requirements
  • Assist with the mentoring and training of junior chefs
  • Maintain a high standard of food with the aim of exceeding our guest’s expectations
  • Ensure that all guests’ dietary requirements are understood and catered for
  • Strictly maintain all food, health and hygiene standards on a daily basis
  • Build and maintain excellent relationships with other departments to provide the best guest experience, a positive working environment and a sense of team spirit
  • From time to time you will be required to take on additional tasks and duties relating to the smooth running of the club

Evenings at Peligoni are a unique affair with something different happening each night and our dining options reflects this. The Courtyard, a recent addition to our events space, hosts weekly events including our family festival nights. Open mic style live music accompanies pop up food stalls where our chefs produce creative and tasty street food. On Fridays we celebrate the week with a huge dinner party: large communal tables with family style sharing platters is the perfect way to finish a Peligoni holiday. 

Throughout the low season we also host our Guest Chef Series; accomplished chefs join us each week working directly with our kitchen team to showcase their talent and produce a delicious and exciting menu to dazzle foodie fans, staff and guests alike. 

With our regular weekly agenda, the Guest Chef Series and a sprinkling of weddings and private parties throughout the season, there is plenty for our kitchen team to get stuck into. 

It’s not all work and no play – in your spare time, as well as being able to explore the island and experience the local food and culture, you will have access to the club’s watersports facilities, allowing you to hone your existing skills or learn new ones in sailing and windsurfing.
