Canteen Support Chef

Heckfield Place is a beautifully restored hotel on a 400-acre farm in the county of Hampshire, just outside of London. The kitchen sources some of its produce from our biodynamic market garden on site, and chefs take regular tours of the farm to draw inspiration from what they see growing.  

The kitchen is currently looking for a Canteen Support Chef to join our dynamic kitchen. Most of our dishes are created to showcase the produce from the farm.

We are looking for a person that is interested in healthy food offerings, utilising the farm as much as possible with limited items bought in. Reduced food waste and the creativity using any spent items from the two restaurants.
