Sabor are seeking a Sous Chef to join their team. The successful candidate will be friendly, personable and passionate about all thing’s food and drink. This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Sous Chef looking for an opportunity in an award winning, critically acclaimed group.
Founded by Nieves Barragan and José Etura, Sabor (meaning flavour in Spanish) takes you on a journey from the tapas bars of Andalucía, through to the asadors of Castile and the seafood restaurants of Galicia. Sabor focuses on capturing the flavour of Spain as well as showcasing the use of traditional ingredients and cooking methods, and a relaxed approach to dining. The quality of the produce our kitchen enjoys is unparalleled. Upstairs in the Asador, whole suckling pigs are cooked in the wood-fired oven, and octopus are simmered in giant copper pots. Downstairs in the restaurant, a seafood counter sits next to dining bar, where guests can oversee the kitchen in full service. Sabor was awarded a coveted Michelin Star in 2018
