Who are we looking for? A trend-setting and boundary pushing pastry alchemist. A show-off (but a nice one).

Someone as comfortable using molecular techniques as they are in their chef whites A Pastry Chef CDP wanting to work in an energetic and vibrant team, working on some the best events happening in London and beyond. A Pastry Chef CDP who wants to be the next superstar in the contemporary events scene wanting to manage their work-life balance whilst carving a niche for themselves in a World-leading industry in London.

Who is the employer? A market leading contemporary bespoke event caterer and winner of prestigious industry awards. A vibrant, cool, growing business with a focus on breaking traditional moulds and wowing clients with new and innovative ideas.

A business that operates in the best venues, Palace's, Museum's, Gallery's and for the most prestigious companies and the wealthiest of private clients.

So what's the job?

As a Pastry CDP you will be part of the pastry kitchen team, helping producing perfect replicas of the dishes created during the tasting - regardless of the numbers needed. You will work on site and help the team build desserts but you'll also understand that working in these fabulous venues isn't always easy and can be very challenging. What skills do you need to be a contender? Ok, so to be considered for the CDP pastry role you don't need to be an actual alchemist but you do need to work at the cutting edge of techniques within the pastry sphere, and be able to demonstrate at least two year's experience doing so on top of your initial training. You need to be passionate about style, beauty, and substance - and you will need to love using the most fresh and seasonal ingredients available. You will need to be able to produce your food at volume, and on site, whilst working alongside a team. You will be a team player. You will set the standard. .
