We’re looking for a new head chef to lead our kitchen team. This consists of seven chef de partie and sous chefs, two apprentices and three kitchen assistants. At the moment our restaurant is in transition, incorporating new elements into our traditional German/Mediterranean style, inspired by vegan and vegetarian raw food cuisine.

It’s just recently closed so we thought it’d be nice to look back over what happened there during the summer. Eternal Youth was the brain-child of our wonderful UK partners Missy and Deano (more on them later) – the idea was (…)
