Dear [Mr./Mrs./Ms.] [Hiring Manager’s Surname],
I’ve been in the kitchen since I was five years old, so I’d be thrilled to bring a lifetime of passion for food to [Restaurant Name] as your new Line Cook. With an associate’s degree in culinary arts, ACF certification, and 5 years of experience in Cajun, Creole, and Middle Eastern cuisines, I’m confident that I’ll be a strong candidate for the role.
As a line cook at Upperline restaurant, I’m known for delivering quality dishes that consistently garner praise from patrons. I also bring a proven ability to save thousands of dollars by reducing food waste, improving cooking processes, and negotiating with vendors.
During my career, I’ve shown outstanding attention to detail in preparing, cooking, and presenting food, evident by the following achievements:
- Contributing to a 20% increase in monthly reservations through word of mouth from satisfied patrons
- Reducing projected yearly costs by an average of $90K for 3 consecutive years
- Representing Upperline restaurant on local TV, newspapers, and charity events
Cooking isn’t a job to me but a lifestyle. I often experiment with ingredients and flavors to come up with new dishes or improve existing ones on my days off. Furthermore, I enjoy training junior line cooks on recipes, techniques, and best practices.
I’m positive that I’ll be an asset to [Restaurant Name]’s brigade. I look forward to meeting you to learn more about the position. You may reach me by phone at (895) 555-555 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an interview.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
