Here’s a once in a lifetime job opportunity: the British Royal Family is currently looking for a sous chef to work within the Royal households.
As The Daily Meal reports, the position is with TRH The Prince of Wales and the The Duchess of Cornwall (Charles and Camilla), with the successful chef required to cater to the Royal couple’s private dining needs, as well as those of staff and for private receptions and events.
The role will require travel up and down the UK to various Royal residencies and it’s fair to say, even if you have experience of banqueting, you probably haven’t catered banquets like these before.
Staff shortages are hitting the hospitality sector hard, prompting some restaurants to look outside the industry to train those without restaurant experience for life in the kitchen. Andrew Friedman finds out more.
