Bosses at a new restaurant under construction on Bristol’s Harbourside are searching for 15 expert chefs in cuisines from across the world in a major recruitment drive.
Za Za Bazaar which is due to open later this year, has been scouring the UK for chefs specialising in a broad range of cuisines.
Twenty chefs have already been found, but a number are still required specialising in a range of cuisines spanning from American and Mexican to Italian, Turkish and Lebanese.
In addition, the new venue is providing a series of apprenticeship opportunities for six young people looking to launch careers in the hospitality industry. The restaurant is working with City of Bristol College to find apprentices with an NVQ Level 2 qualification. Over 19s with NVQ Level 3 qualifications will also benefit from work experience placements.
Za Za Bazaar, executive chef, Nitin Bhatnagar, said: “I am delighted with the calibre of chefs that we have already attracted to our new operation. “From Ireland to Scotland and across England and Wales we are building an extraordinary team of specialist chefs. They will be inspiring mentors for the young apprentices that we are recruiting here in Bristol. I am determined that Za Za Bazaar earns a national reputation for identifying and nurturing the best young talent.”
Bristol will be the first Za Za Bazaar operation. There are plans to create over seven more across the UK. Adventure and live cooking are at the heart of the restaurant concept, which will set cuisine from India, China, Japan, the Far East, South America and Europe against vivid backdrops, reflecting the cultures from which it originates.
The new restaurant is designed to offer ‘something for everyone’ with dishes that will appeal to the whole family. There will always be a guest cuisine and something from every corner of the world for diners to sample and enjoy.
