Position: Executive Chef

We are Mr. & Mrs. Watson and we want to change the world with good food. Good for the planet, animal welfare, people and our taste buds.
It all started in 2017 with the opening of our plant-based food bar in Amsterdam-East, which quickly became known for its artisanal cheeses.
In the following years Mr. & Mrs. Watson evolved into a broader vegan food concept, supplying a complete cheese product line throughout the Netherlands from our own factory. We are now about to take a huge next step. After years of Research and Development we will launch the world’s first plant-based Dutch cheese wheel based on faba beans. It is our ambition to once again make the Dutch world leaders in the field of cheese, this time plant-based.
We are now looking for an executive chef. In this position it is your mission to develop amazing recipes, dishes and products which support the vegan cheese experience for the guests in our restaurant, customers at home as well as for (visual) marketing content.
