New Opening – ROKA Japanese Restaurants – Kuwait – Head Pastry Chef
We are delighted to announce the continued expansion of the ROKA brand internationally and its third Middle Eastern home in Kuwait City, Kuwait. This exciting new opening sees us partnering with the incredible new destination hotel and the country’s first Waldorf Astoria.
Founded in London in 2004, the brand has grown to 4 sites within the English capital. ROKA Dubai opened in 2020 as the restaurants first international location and ROKA Riyadh is set to open in summer 2021. Kuwait City to the family will further develop our stature in the region and showcase the ROKA culinary experience in an exceptionally exciting dining destination.
Luxury and world-renowned Japanese cuisine cooked over our famous robatayaki grill and served in all-embracing high-energy environment with personalised charismatic service is what our guests have been enjoying for 17 years with no sign of stopping!
We are looking for a Head Pastry Chef to join the ROKA family and develop the decadent pastry offering to the next level. Ideally you will have had some professional experience within the Middle East however this is not essential.
You’ll be working in partnership with the Executive Chef and Global Pastry Chef to ensure the delivery of ROKA quality and style of pastry and desserts. Experience with Japanese cuisine would be advantageous, however the style of pastry delivered is more of a classical technique incorporating Japanese ingredients such as yuzu, green tea and cherry blossom.
ROKA is a luxury high volume operation, applicants should be comfortable delivering the same levels of quality pastry in a busy fast paced restaurant.
Your background should read as:
– An impressive career history in luxury restaurants- Fantastic passion for presentation and a meticulous eye for detail- An organised and methodical approach to work which can be ran at a fast pace- Calm but motivational leadership style- A passion for developing junior chefs and sharing your expertise- Determined attitude and an impressive palate for flavour
If selected, then it’s time to pack your bags as your ROKA journey will begin with a trip to either our Dubai or London locations to immerse yourself in the ROKA product and culture.
During your training we will expect anyone to demonstrate a high level of commitment and humility by collaborating with the local teams and really embodying the approach, style and standards of the ROKA brand.
Our managers are mentors who demonstrate their passion and ability to create an environment where training and constant development flows naturally throughout the business.
With future expansion planned for ROKA and other company brands within the Azumi group there is no better time to join the family and start your story…
