Want to travel the world and earn more than $100,000 per year? All you have to do is cook for Madonna.
The job ad reads, “Top chef with existing Private Household experience required, for VVIP client in Mayfair. This is a London-based position, with a chef in place at U.S. residences (however, you must be willing to travel to the U.S. when required).”
Then it gets very specific: “To be suitable for this role, you must have knowledge of kosher cooking. The Principal does not run a kosher kitchen…but you must be familiar with all the basic rules (no dairy and meat served together, no pork, fish must have fins and scales — no swordfish, shellfish etc.).”
The job pays up to $141,000, and the successful applicant must know how to cook “the client’s favored foods,” which include “Italian cuisine (risotto is a favorite), Asian, Sushi/Sashimi, classic European and American dishes. They are not looking for a fine dining chef; food should be healthy, simple and family style.”
In addition, the chef will be “cooking for the Principal, any guests/staff and young children (who all love food and eat the same as the Principal).”
Madonna’s “young children” include David, 13, Mercy James, 12, and twins Stella and Esther, six.
There’s no mention of cooking in Portugal, which is where Madonna recently moved to, but perhaps she already has a chef there.
The position starts late this month or early next month, if you’re interested.
