Rain and shine
You will have to deal with exacting standards and being told "No, that's horrid," all the time

I am looking for Wetherspoons employees, home cooks, or "chefs" who have never worked in a kitchen before
I want wet clay, yearning for a good shaping
Basic lego blocks I can build into a whatever form I choose.
If you've gone to school for cooking and think your ocean-deep understanding of French mother sauces means something, please do not apply

If you don't even understand how butter happens, I want you
I need two commis chefs who will just listen to instructions and follow them exactly, and eventually learn how to improvise without my help
I do NOT want two commis chefs who will say "Aye," and then do whatever the hell they want as soon as I am not in the room

Also, if you're a woman and you're afraid this will be some sort of cowboy, alpha-male kitchen, don't be
The best employees I've ever had have all been women, so get in the ring.
I am trying to build a good team for a very large future expansion
In the meantime we'll have free reign to do whatever we want in a kitchen the size of a football pitch
Get on board.
