Insight into The Monastery: Teisha Baker, Victorian Pantry and Operations Supervisor
Teisha started working at The Monastery in September 2018 as the Supervisor of The Victorian Pantry and she also works as part of the Operations Team on the different events held in the building.
Teisha ensures that The Victorian Pantry operates productively during our Special Heritage & Visitor Open Days (Sunday-Tuesday), helping to prepare and serve a delicious range of salads, sandwiches, soup of the day and specials, hot and cold drinks, and selection of cakes and treats. She also helps to deliver our lunches for our Taste of The Monastery tours and provides excellent customer service when delivering our special Monastery Afternoon Teas!
• What do you do in your day-to-day role at The Monastery?
I provided fresh salads and sandwiches as well as hot and cold food and beverages to the public. I also try my best to provide a great experience for anyone visiting The Monastery, by providing them with delicious food, great customer service and a Victorian Pantry with a five star hygiene rating!
• What is your favourite part of the building?
The Cloisters are my favourite part of The Monastery for a couple of reasons. The first being how beautiful the arches look lit up in any different colour and the other reason being how nice they look on someone’s wedding day when the building is decorated and feeling really magical for the couples’ special day.
• What are your favourite events in the building?
Weddings are by far my favourite event help with at The Monastery, because no two weddings are the same – everything is so different including the food, the venue decorations, the entertainment and the people who are attending. In addition, the mood of everyone in the building is always really happy on a wedding day, just because of the happiness of the couple and their guests!
• What item would you buy from The Monastery’s gift shop?
I would most definitely buy the salted caramel biscuits! They are so delicious!
You can usually find Teisha supervising our Victorian Pantry on one of our Special Visitor & Heritage Open Days (Sunday-Tuesday) and helping out with the delivery of our events throughout the rest of the week!
