Dear Ms. Murray:
As a passionate culinary professional with exceptional knife skills, I am applying for a Cook position currently available at Hyatt.
Through my hands-on experiences in fast-paced culinary environments, I developed expertise in cost-effectively preparing different kinds of foods. Mainly, I am competent at cooking Asian, French, Italian, and Lebanese cuisines. I have a track record of maintaining quality standards in the preparation of foods by following established recipes and protocols.
As a cook, I ensured quality and safety standards for food preparation and service. I saved $1500 per week by introducing sufficient food portioning techniques. I am eager to bring the same commitment and skills in food preparation, quality maintenance, and safe food handling.
I look forward to meeting with you in an interview, Ms. Murray, and will call you next week to follow-up. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
