2. Work Experience - CV/Resume Part 2 [Mandatory]
The Riverside Inn Shropshire Position: Sous Chef
Start date 19/2/2007- 04/08/2008
The Riverside Inn is a busy country hotel/restaurant located on the banks of the river Severn, it serves a variety of home made dishes from out main menu which has six starters, mains and deserts and changes monthly. My position as sous chef meant that I was in charge of maintaining the high quality of the food that is prepared as well as the food that is delivered every morning. I had to designate daily cleaning schedules to the kitchen porters, perform regular checks to maintain the performance and hygiene of the kitchen equipment and store areas and also maintain strict stock control/ordering ensuring that no food is wasted or out of date . In addition to this, I had to assist the head chef with monthly menu changes, costing and took overall control of the kitchen in his absence.
The Woodman St Leonards Dorset Position : Sous Chef
28/3/2006 - 17/12/2006
The Woodman was a very interesting place to work as I had never served food on such a vast scale before, I took the job when the building was still under construction as the idea of serving hundreds of meals a day sounded very exiting. The volume of food being sent from such a small kitchen was staggering. We would regularly do seven hundred covers in a single day with a maximum of only four chefs per shift which was very rewarding.
My duties were to control the pass and keep the kitchen running during a shift which also meant helping whichever section was the busiest at any given time. I was in charge of ordering large amounts of food twice weekly with very little margin for error, also cleaning of the kitchen and stock taking once a week.

All of the above were owned by the Incredible pub company, I started work at the Meadow Inn which was a busy tourist driven pub and got very busy in the summer, it served a variety of meals which were mainly home made but they did buy in some of its food. Here I got to grasps with the basics of cooking and serving food and basic cooking principles and was where I decided to take being a chef seriously.
When the managers left (reasons not known) I was given the option to either stay or take a job at the Lord Nelson which was serving a much higher quality menu, I took the job.
Working under head chef Dean Marriot I was shown ways to cook and prepare food to a much higher standard and how to present my dishes in an appealing and impressive fashion. After seven months at the Lord Nelson one of the company directors offered me Sous Chef position at there new hotel in Yorkshire
again this was another step up for me as the Malthouse was the companies new flagship serving food from eight am until eleven pm seven days a week with an emphasis on high quality and impeccable service. After the hotel was up and running smoothly I was asked if I would like a Head Chefs position in another of there premises which I declined as the position was not open for at least nine months.
