Dear Ms. Furry,

My experience as a restaurant cook covers over four years. My talent, experience, and training make me the best choice for your open Head Cook position. I have included my resume for your review.

Briefly, I began working in the culinary industry ten years ago when I worked part time while in high school, working for a local restaurant chain. It was here that I was introduced to my love for food and creating unique and tasty menus. I then went on to study formally at Italian Culinary Academy. Once graduated, I went on to work at The Red Door, where I presently retain role as Head Cook. My responsibilities are the entire maintenance of the kitchen: a staff of over 10 cooks, menu planning, negotiation with wine/dessert/supply representatives, replenishment, and organization. It is a challenging environment that requires stellar leadership and communication skills, as well as an ability to think quickly on your feet. I have all this. I seek to bring these high standard qualities to your restaurant.

I thank you for your consideration, and ask that you contact me at your earliest convenience at (111)-619-5945 to set a time to speak. I look forward to your call.
