As a Demi Chef De Partie in the kitchen it is my job to support the Sous Chefs and assist the Chef de Partie.
As a Demi Chef De Partie I need to be flexible and be able to cover all of the sections in the kitchen. This includes breakfast, in room dining, banqueting, night shifts and Lounge Bar.
When on one particular section it is my responsibility to ensure all temperatures are being recorded. Write up an MEP list and to do an order. When working with junior chefs it is my job to distribute the jobs and ensure that everything gets done.
Other shifts may involve working in the Pastry Department, looking after the afternoon tea preparations, where we will prepare and decorate the afternoon tea pastries. We also make the scones, curd and seasonal jams. This section gives us a real opportunity to use out artistic skill as there is a lot of freedom to try new skills and techniques.
Banqueting is a large part of our business at the W London Leicester Square Hotel, there are varying sizes in the banquet rooms here, so we cater for lots of different styles of banquets – breakfast functions, plated desserts, buffets, afternoon tea breaks, Lunch, Dinner etc.
I also have regular meetings with the Head Chef. He will tell me any updates that I am unaware of and I will keep him informed on my progress with everything I’m working on.
The job is very exciting and if you like to learn a lot then this job is perfect! The hours are as required and vary from 8-10 hours 5 days a week.
