Description

 

We are looking for a talented pizza chef to support our Deli Head Chef in running the Deli kitchen, specialising in producing delicious sourdough pizzas in our wood fired oven as well as assisting with creating delicious simple meals in the restaurant. Our Chefs are creative team players who love what they do and are excited to share it with our guests. 

 

Key responsibilities

  • Manage the Pizza Section within the Peli Deli kitchen
  • Work with the Deli Head Chef to ensure that all produce sold in the Deli is presented attractively and packaged and labelled correctly, with clear information on allergens
  • Prepare dough daily and create daily pizza specials
  • Assist in cross training other chefs to gain further experience with pizzas 
  • Assist other sections of the kitchen as and when needed
  • Assist the Shopkeepers and Deli Hosts with picking and packing as well as preparing hampers.  
  • Effectively communicate ordering requirements with the Deli Head Chef

  • Strictly maintain all food, health and hygiene standards on a daily basis
  • Maintain good profit margins on food
  • 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

 

This is a fantastic role for someone who expresses themselves through food, is self-motivated and enjoys working in a small team. The Peli Deli is still a relatively new addition to The Peligoni Club, with a great deal of potential and we are looking for chefs with the passion and commitment to make it a real success.

As a Peligoni chef, you are part of a wider chef team, operating across multiple kitchens. You will therefore naturally get to work in our other kitchens as well, and have the opportunity to experience different cuisines and service styles.
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.
