ultra-local food: restaurant and cornershop deli
We are currently looking for an experienced Chef de Partie to join our small team at Brixton Cornercopia
Brixton Cornercopia is a small neighbourhood restaurant and deli located in Brixton Village Market, which Jay Rayner argues is ‘the most vibrant restaurant scene in London today’. We serve seasonal British food with a frequently changing menu showcasing the best local and seasonal ingredients.
We have a growing reputation, a loyal following, serve up to 50 in the evenings and are often fully booked in advance.
Time Out described us as a ‘pioneering locavore shop and restaurant that helped to kick start’ the food revolution in Brixton Village - It is certainly a vibrant and ‘happening’ place to work, with live music, film crews and press, making regular visits.
Localness and sustainability are central to what we do. We source from biodynamic farms, urban growers and foragers. Alongside the restaurant activities we are involved in many sustainability and local food initiatives. We run workshops, take part in Slow Food festivals, and support small local food producers.
The right candidate will have enthusiasm, drive, a passion for British seasonal food and will thrive under pressure in a small but busy environment. If you are a fan of St. John and The Anchor and Hope, know your way around a black pudding or a faggot and believe a good pie can be a thing of beauty you will fit in well.
We want someone who is keen to contribute to menu’s and demonstrate creativity in all sections of the kitchen, someone keen to learn new skills such as curing and smoking, pickling and preserving. Someone short on ego who understands the real spirit of collaboration. Butchery skills would be a fine bonus. A professional, organised and mature work ethic is a basic requirement.
For the right person the post will be about more than just cooking, with opportunities to engage in community workshops, visit local suppliers and skill share.
If you have two years' experience in a similar role, good knowledge of British food and share our values we would like to hear from you.
We offer a competitive salary depending on experience, plus additional benefits.
