Cover Letter

I am a passionate, hardworking and creative chef with exceptional skills in both devising and preparing menus and motivating and supervising kitchen staff.

After completing my apprenticeship with Jambucket Cafe and Restaurant 2010, I was employed as a Menu Consultant to Darvag Hotels Group. I devised a menu around the theme of trusted, traditional Italian favourites with a modern approach in seasoning and cooking techniques. John Lightfoot of Cuisine magazine declared the food at Darvag to be “an exceptional experience in hotel dining. Every restaurant can claim to do spaghetti bolognaise, but only Darvag can produce this old favourite, with a new variety of herbs and spices, achieving such delicious results.”

I felt that I had achieved as much as I desired with Darvag Hotels and I felt the strong desire to return to the kitchen and actively prepare and serve the menus I design. I am also keen to mentor new apprentices and guide them in correct techniques and steer them towards a fulfilling career in preparing delicious and nutritious food.

Over 10 years, I have built a steadfast network of dependable suppliers who can deliver high-quality produce to meet strict budgetary requirements. My preference is for local produce as it keeps a lid on delivery and packaging costs, while also building our relationships with local suppliers and brands.

Having worked in numerous kitchens over the years, and in visiting Darvag Hotels to supervise the preparation and delivery of my menu, I was exacting about the neatness and layout of the kitchen. A well-designed and furnished kitchen optimises efficient procedures and enhances the final product. It is also a much more enjoyable environment to work in for staff.

I believe my exceptional culinary expertise, previous experience and positive reviews make me the perfect Chef for Willowbrook Restaurant.

I am available to meet with you to discuss the position in greater detail and I look forward to hearing from you.
