Valentina is the founder and head chef here at LELE'S. The cafe is named after her dad Raffaele who taught her the virtue of stubbornness and generosity, both essential to the growth of LELE'S. She is a massive foodie and in fact all she can talk about it is the weather and what she had for lunch! Yes, she is very Italian! When she is not cooking she is probably playing with Zz her little rescue dog, reading sci-fi and writing silly little poems. She can't live without liquorice and she can seriously eat all kind of pizza and crisps - all of them, occasionally at the same time!
Zz is our quality control chief officer, he untiringly tries all our food and recipes to ensure you can eat only the best we can offer. Zz comes from Cyprus and has been rescued by Wild At Heart Foundation, a lovely charity committed to help stray dogs all over Europe. Zz loves a cuddle and snacking on edamame beans. We call him #Zzthefox because we think he is actually a fox!
Working at LELE'S is fun and relaxed however, we work really hard and are committed to offer you the best service we can. We want you to enter LELE'S with a smile and leave with even a bigger smile. It might a bit sugary but we really are a little family and put our employees at the heart of the business. If you are looking for a safe and exciting environment where to meet mind likely people, but most importantly if you like working in dungarees then we might be the right fit for you! We are not currently recruiting but feel free to send us your CV and say Hi!
