    Default One and possibly two Thai/English cooks required

    Probably not the place to put it but I couldn’t; find an emplyoment section. I may have a couple of jobs for 1, maybe 2 Thai cooks. Even better if they can cook English food too.

    I've put a pitch in to run a very busy Thai/English restaurant in a busy pub in Middlesex.

    Very up in the air at the moment so I have no idea of salaries etc. Just wanting to find out of there is any interest out there at this stage.

    Oops. Replying to my own post...

    If anybody knows of a website where I can find CVs of Thai chefs looking for job I would love to know.

    Whenever I Google all I get is agencies who are advertising jobs. Thanks.

    79 views and no replies. I can narrow the area down a lot now. It's near Heathrow airport.

    Any ideas on Cvs of Thai chefs looking for work please?

    i would say depends on experience ,remember they dont have to be thail jamie o is a very good chef and proberly could cook most thails under the table might be a tad to expensive thore ,i should imagine all the best have jobs already in resturants maybe someone who has a keen interest willing to learn and likes to cook ,word of mouth seems to work for thails get yourself down to local market were they shop with misses and put the feelers out .

    Who is Jamie O? I know they seem to work using the grapevine but we have never had much to do with it. Their are not that many Thais around us. Those we know already own restaurants...

    Thanks.

    you have put a "pitch" in to run a restaurant and you don't know who Jamie O is.

    Save your money and pull out now before you go the way his restaurants did

    In fairness, if you eat in any of his restaurants you’d be forgiven for not knowing Jamie Oliver is allegedly a chef.

    I'm afraid that is something you will never find me doing Mr T so will take your word for it.
    I do not go in for all this expensive pretentious rubbish and prefer a plate of proper food in front of me.

    Thought he was talking about somebody in here with a Thai wife. Yes I know who Jamie Oliver is. Just didn’t think of the connection. Certainly not Jamie O as a Thai chef.

    My wife is off to a Thai monastery for a few days that isn’t too far away. I will see if they have a notice board.

    There is nothing fancy or pretentious in a Jamie O restaurant, better food at Pizza Hut! He might be an okay caterer but he’s no chef.

    Jamie the O was on Thai PBS this morning knocking up some Tuna and Rice when I switched the TV on.
    I took Mrs to Jamie Os restaurant in Edinburgh when we lived in Fife for a Valentines meal, just a famous name really. I think theres / was a Jamie Os uptown somewhere around Siam.

    Leeds.......that reminds me. There used to be a Thai guy called San who ran an Isaan style Thai restaurant on Vicar Lane in Leeds. Previously he was the chef at the now closed Thai Elephant in Harrogate. Local Thai's raved about his food and said it was 'real Thai food' - from my limited menu choice when I visited, they were correct. He had a short term lease and it ran out - anyone know where he is now?

    It's a non issue. It's been running very successfully for almost ten years and we are taking over.

    never take anything for granted you have to work at it i had my own buisness for 15 years and i lived with it 24 hrs a day 7 days a week ,yes the benifits was good but was it hard work yes it was ,there is no such thing as easy ,so the quality of the cook never came into question ??? go for it as you will only regret if you dont make it yours dont think its easy or your ass will get chewed and it could cost you more than you think be positive and it look after you like you look after it .

    I have always had my own businesses since I was 21. This will be the third different business. The quality of the cook won’t be an issue with this business. It's my wife doing the cooking and her Thai food is amazing. The best I have ever tasted. My English food might be a problem though!
