Things to consider


About the employer

Lucky Lychee is a restaurant group serving consistently delicious Chinese, Malaysian and Thai food. We started trading in September 2020 as a street food stand and have since operated as a home delivery service and are currently in residency at The Mucky Duck on Hyde St, Winchester.

In 2021 we plan to further build our customer base before setting up in our own premises and building the foundation for growth into multiple outlets.

Our USP is to serve the needs unmet by most provincial restaurants and takeaways: authentic dishes which are novel to the market, alongside takeaway classics and inventive takes on old favourites. We only use high-quality ingredients with excellent food hygiene, sustainable practises and packaging.

Level 2 Commis Chef.

A commis chef is the most common starting position in many kitchens and in principal the most junior culinary role.

A commis chef prepares food and carries out basic cooking tasks under the supervision of a more senior chef. The primary objective of the commis chef is to learn and understand how to carry out the basic functions in every section of the kitchen. Therefore, having the opportunity to experience, consider and value each section with a view to choosing an area where they feel most inspired. The learning journey of any chef will vary considerably from one individual to the next; however, it is necessary to understand and have experience in the basics that this role provides in order to progress to any future senior chef role.
