Join Team Ambassade and let’s create an unforgettable work experience together at one of the loveliest places in the city!


This is what the position entails..

You start the working day by checking orders and mise en place. You are an excellent planner and know how to set the right priorities, which you discuss with the team. At 12:00 you are ready for lunch. While preparing the dishes, you maintain focus and control over the rest of the kitchen. Between lunch and dinner, you prepare the mise en place for the rest of the evening and come up with a dish for the new menu together with your team. Thanks to your knowledge of trends and creative approach, you get these ideas clear. After lunch, you discuss the new dish with the chef. You immediately add the required ingredients to the order list for a test later this week.

In preparation for a busy evening, you make sure everything is ready at 17:00. The first orders are coming in and together with the chef you ensure a streamlined service. On days when the chef is not here, you take charge of the kitchen team and motivate them.

The kitchen closes at 23:00. Before you leave, you and the team ensure that the kitchen is completely tidy, in accordance with hygiene and cleaning standards (HACCP). You perform a final check as an extra guarantee.
