The skills you need for a career in Food & Beverage

The skills you need for a career in Food & Beverage

In luxury hospitality, you need to yearn for the exceptional. 


Whether you work at the front desk or in the spa, striving for more is paramount. The same goes for working in the food and beverage space. 


One of the most important elements of a luxury hotel, food and beverage plays a significant role in the growth and investment of luxury hospitality. 


A great drink and an excellent meal are some of the main experiences that visitors will remember and talk about for weeks after. 

From knowing the ins and outs of cocktails to making unforgettable and salivating dishes, there are specific skills needed when it comes to food and beverage in luxury hospitality. 

Before embarking on a career in the sector, seek out courses that are tailored to training behind the bar, being a barista or becoming a chef.  

Doing this will equip you with the knowledge and techniques needed to excel in your chosen role. 

In luxury hospitality, its all about service. It is at the core of the business and food and beverage is no different. Whether you are on the bar floor or behind the scenes in the heat of the kitchen, service is your only goal.

These are roles that need excellent communication, attentiveness, and the ability to anticipate and exceed client expectations.
