Job Description

We are looking for an Executive Chef to run the kitchen and create the menus for ARTAH’s 2020 season. We are looking for someone creative, who is passionate about health and food as medicine. The chef will work alongside ARTAH’s founder, Rhian Stephenson, to create a nutritionally-focused menu that delivers as much on taste, texture and flavour as it does on health. During retreat weeks, the chef will oversee and execute all covers to ensure a smooth operation at each meal with assistance from a sous-chef depending on the number of guests. The role will go far beyond running the kitchen; he or she will build relationships with local producers, ensuring a true farm to table experience, and contribute recipes and content to the UK team to share with the ARTAH community. The Executive Chef will play a significant role in the growth, development and shaping of the ARTAH experience in 2020 and will be responsible for creating a best-in-class culinary experience for our guests.

ARTAH was founded by Rhian Stephenson – Nutritionist, Naturopath and CEO of Psycle London. Born out of her passion for health and energy, Rhian’s vision was to create a sanctuary where people could nourish the body, clear the mind and uncover a new level of health. Combining over a decade of clinical experience with her wealth of knowledge from the fitness world, ARTAH is a modern retreat that provides guests with a challenging, invigorating experience that is truly transformative.
