"This is no ordinary Demi Chef de Partie role," the job description reads. "In our state-of-the-art kitchens, you'll prepare classical and contemporary menus for a wide range of events, learning essential skills that will provide stepping stones for a great career." Sounds like a pretty sweet job. What's better than cooking for the queen?
The lucky chef won’t even be limited to the Buckingham Palace kitchen. Their responsibilities also involve traveling with the queen between her various residences and cooking for her wherever she is.

This job sounds better and better.
