Miguel - Kitchen Porter
The ‘Cog in our Wheel’ at The Clock House – Miguel
Miguel, our kitchen porter, has been with us longer than any other members of our staff, including me! That’s because he was already here when we bought The Clock House way back in 2004. Since then, he has been quietly beavering away in the kitchen, making sure that everything runs smoothly and supporting our brigade. We thought it high time he receives some recognition, so we asked him for a minute or two on the clock:
What do you enjoy about your job Miguel?
The busier the service, the happier I am! I really enjoy my job and I like - and respect - my colleagues enormously. When we are very busy, it gives me so much pleasure to be able to help make everyone’s life easier and have the kitchen service run as smoothly as possible.
What music do you like to listen to?
Oh, always romantic music (read into that what you like!)
What is your guilty secret?
Football… and betting – I enjoy a regular ‘flutter’
Generally I choose non-greasy, light food with very little fat. Fish is my favourite food because it is so delicious, as well as being healthy.
I used to enjoy the occasional beer, but I stopped drinking alcohol some 15 years ago now and don’t miss it.
Much as I love my job, I also love holidays! Especially visiting islands. I like islands because they are usually nice and quiet. I’ve not yet visited the Caribbean or America, so maybe next time….
