About Me

I am an enthusiastic young chef looking for full time work. I am currently studying cookery at Weltec finishing early October this year. I am very enthusiastic about cooking and have experience in a commercial kitchen as a kitchen-hand. I have also cooked competitively at the Wellington Food Show. As I am going to be qualified in 2 weeks time, I am looking for a job change from kitchen-hand to a chef position.
