UK Chefs are Boiling Over at The Chefs’ Shortage

We couldn’t help but laugh when we saw a tweet by Henal Chotai using a face of Eastenders character Phil Mitchell exploding with rage with the line: 2016: coming over here and taking our jobs!  Underneath he used the same picture saying: 2021: Not coming over here and taking our jobs!

Henal posed the question: “does this sum it up?”

Being part of the EU made it easy for Europeans to come and work in hospitality in the UK. But Brexit and Covid has conspired in a double whammy to now make it much more difficult to attract staff.

How are you coping? Are you fuming like Phil Mitchell? Or does every cloud have a silver lining? Could this be the time that hospitality changes and the way that food and drink is served changes with it?
