The most generous family on the Peninsula is looking for a full time private chef. This is an amazing opportunity to work for the nicest and most loyal family of 4. The family has had a chef/House Manager who is going to take on the household management duties, which is why the family is looking for a career private chef, who can stay for years and become a part of their family.

The family is not on any specific diet, but they do like to cleanse with weekly vegan menus, vegetarian menus, etc. They also like to have a hearty meal from time to time, so you should have an extensive repertoire of different cuisines and diets. A background in nutrition would be a bonus. Degree from an accredited culinary institute is preferred but not required.
