Samantha Underwood Kitchen trainer Ed’s Easy Diner

on .

I started my career at Ed’s Easy Diner in July 2013 as a grill chef. I was trained to Ed’s Standards to produce high quality food within the kitchen. After working hard and establishing myself as a leading member of the kitchen team I was asked to assist with new diner openings both training prior to opening and supporting during the opening week. This entailed training new grill chefs to a high standard as well as coaching them during service.

My confidence grew with each open I was involved with and I realised that this was something I’d like to do as a career. I’m now a kitchen trainer for Ed’s, traveling around the country to train and support chefs in both new and existing diners, ensuring with the use of training materials and audits that they are all complying with company standards. I love my job.
