If you’re a chef who’s used to bouncing around the kitchens of local restaurants, you’re probably looking for a new challenge. Well, a new job just opened up at one of the most exclusive kitchens in the world: Buckingham Palace. One lucky, qualified pastry chef might get the opportunity of a lifetime, designing menus and preparing dishes for the royal family.
Buckingham palace is currently looking for a classically trained pastry chef to join the kitchen staff. According to the job description, you’ll be planning and preparing desserts for the Queen and her guests, including at the several estate dinners held throughout the year. Don’t worry, you be decorating cakes with frosting pictures of Harry and Meghan’s faces. Whoever is selected for the role will work directly with the Head Chef to design new menus, and oversee the kitchen’s entire pastry team. You’ll also get the chance to travel, as you will be working at multiple royal residences throughout the United Kingdom.
But don’t expect working in a royal residence to be anything like living in one. You will be preparing food for guests with discerning tastes, at a variety of high profile events. If you decide to apply, you should be confident that you can handle the pressure that comes along with the job.
Applicants must come from a fine dining or five-star catering background, and apply by June 26.
