Chef in Waterbury, Connecticut
I am writing to apply for a position in your establishment. I am a creative, enthusiastic, hardworking chef with a passion for food. I have experience working in busy restaurants around the Country. I started cooking at the age of 15, since that time I realize that being in a kitchen preparing amazing food for others is what I want to do.
After completing my Culinary Training in 2003, I was employed for over a year at a busy Five Star restaurant. I was very efficient in my duties there. It was here that I developed a much more productive system of food prep, which was commended by the chef de cuisine. I also gained experience in managing staff rosters, pricing and ordering for a large establishment.
Over the years as a chef, I have developed professional experiences in a variety of restaurants and I have culinary training and knowledge in a number of cuisines including American, Italian, and seafood. I am extremely skilled at putting my own stamp on traditional dishes, creating new combinations and experimenting with new flavors while being careful not to compromise the freshness and originality of the food I prepare.
I am great at following orders and working as part of a team, but can also step up to the plate to take charge when required. I believe my exceptional culinary expertise, positive outlook and absolute passion for this industry would make me the perfect canadate for employment in your establishment
I look forward to hearing from you and discussing my suitability for the position with you further.
