Summary

I am an enthusiastic young cook who always loved transforming food into art. My culinary experience as senior chef and commis chef helped me understand the way a professional kitchen works, and now I find myself in need of new challenges where my passion, motivation and high attention to details are put to good use. Being highly adaptable, incredibly well organised and a dedicated quick learner, I believe to be a valuable asset to you kitchen.
