About

As a chef with over 26 years experience in accoladed kitchens, and as a former freelance chef, Neil Patterson-Azzopardi has won multiple rosettes in his own right.

He knows how important the synergy of a team is, to produce excellent food. This is why he set up reliefchef.org to help resourcing the correct staff for his clients.

Our mission statement

At reliefchef.org we know what effect having the wrong person in the business can be like. This is why we’ll try our utmost to pair you with the right chef and alleviate the stress of looking for the ideal candidate.

For over twenty years, just four words have been the cornerstone of our work ethos:

  • Caution
  • Guest
  • Attention
  • Detail

They remain strong core values now, as they did, when first introduced to them whilst working for a former 2Michelin star chef.

When chefs apply to work with reliefchef.org we check references & the veracity of their CV, with our library of guide books. This applies to both interim and permanent candidates.
