You will help in the preparation and design of all food and drinks menus and ensure that the kitchen operates in a timely way that meets our quality standards. You supervise all food preparation and manage and train kitchen staff, establish working schedule and assess staff’s performance. You will report to the Chef de Cuisine.

The kitchen of the Brasserie & Lounge is the largest on property where around 24 chefs are working daily.

Under the leadership all dishes are created from the heart with respect to seasons, nature and environment.
We use state-of-the-art machines to prepare our food, like a Josper Barbecue. We use modern European techniques with Dutch influence and produce. Most of the products we get are produced locally.
