A Droitwich Spa hotel is searching for a taster in residence to sample all dishes before they are added to its menus.
The Chateau Impney hotel is advertising for a member of the public to work with executive chef Stephen Unwin to provide feedback on dishes under development.
Applicants need no catering qualifications, though they will be tested on their palate and passion for food before an appointment is made.
After applying through the hotel's website, a select group will be invited to a series of taste battles to identify the best palate.
Ben Elder, Chateau Impney's general manager, said that the appointment of a taster in residence would provide independent feedback.
"In recent years, the plethora of cooking-based reality TV shows has demonstrated just how well informed the Great British public are when it comes to food," he added. "While the majority of the contestants in such shows are often just everyday people, they have the most fantastic understanding of flavours and a well-developed palate. It's this knowledge and passion that we want to harness so we can build upon the already great food we deliver to customers on a daily basis."
