Dear Ms Graham,
Based on the job description for your current Chef vacancy, I seem to be a perfect fit for your position.
I stand out from others because of my ability to cook food to the highest standards and ensure it is presented in an attractive way.
With my present employer, Brown’s Restaurant, I am responsible for recommending recipes, preparing weekly staff schedules, handling special diet/menu requests and ensuring that all food is stored in appropriate containers. I am also in charge of deciding on the quantities of food to be cooked and size of portions to be served.
In the past I have worked in busy restaurants, holiday resort, grills and fast food takeaways. Throughout my career I have demonstrated an ability to adhere to the highest sanitary and safe food handling standards. I have an eye for detail, am up to date with the latest culinary trends, and have a patient and understanding attitude towards work colleagues. I have a well earned reputation for keeping a cool head when it gets very busy at peak times. I am very proud of the high standards that I can deliver and of the fact that I strive to uphold a safe working environment for all kitchen staff. If hired, I can assure you that I will promote professional work habits amongst staff and make sure they wear appropriate clothing at all ties.
I want to work within a culture that fosters internal promotion and believe that your company can offer me this.
I would greatly appreciate an opportunity to meet with you in person and invite you to contact me to arrange an interview at your convenience.
