Dear (Mr. Rolland)
I would like to briefly introduce myself to you in order to be considered for the Chef de Cuisine position available with you at (name of restaurant/hotel etc.)
I have had extensive career experience working as a Head Chef for the last (5) years, having worked at (give examples of some of the establishments where you worked) which has allowed me to expand and enhance my knowledge of what it means to be an excellent Chef de Cuisine. My past experience has allowed me to gain fresh insight and a thorough understanding of what are the crucial elements required in order to have a successful team working closely with you and managing efficient food preparation and service.
I believe that I have gained a tremendous amount of hands on experience, working closely with the rest of the very dedicated teams of chefs, patisserie chefs, waiters and apprentices.
I wish to be able to present some of my specialties to you including some of the types of foods I particularly enjoy highlighting and developing into inspiring dishes for our customers.
I enjoy experimenting with ingredients to create innovative flavor cinations and my experience, talents and responsibilities have included the following:
(THIS CAN BE ADJUSTED ACCORDING TO YOUR SPECIFIC EXPERIENCES)
- Hiring and managing individuals on the kitchen staff team.
- Creative menu planning using seasonal ingredients,
- Cost calculations and budget forecasting for 6 months ahead,
- Dealing with our suppliers on a daily basis, keeping up with latest available products,
- Over seeing a large number of catering events, both private and corporate.
(Here mention and add some details of any awards that you have won in the past including dates.)
I enjoy building and maintaining strong relationships with suppliers, I believe a happy supplier means a happy Chef and a happy kitchen!
I have included a copy of my resume (USA) / C.V (UK) for you to consider further.
Thank you for your time today and I hope to be able to discuss the position with you in detail face to face.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
