I'm Sydney from London with 15 years of culinary experience under my belt. Specializing in cooking, baking and creating healthy, balanced meals, I can also conjure up irresistible desserts. I believe in maintaining top-tier hygiene and cleanliness in the kitchen, affirmed by my safe food handlers certificate.
I'm a seasoned professional that well understands the flavors of diverse cuisines such as Canadian, Italian, Middle Eastern, Vegetarian, Mexican, Vegan, and Indian. My culinary acumen is not just limited to cooking, but extends to table setting, serving, baking, keeping the kitchen clean, and organizing food for events. I’m also adept at cooking children's meals, washing dishes, purchasing products and taking orders from employers. Having managed kitchen staff and helpers over the years, I feel comfortable supervising and directing others in a kitchen setting.
In addition to a comprehensive set of cooking skills, I offer special expertise in modern cooking technology, knowledge of sanitary and hygienic standards, and experience in the confectionery industry and catering services. With logistics being an important part of the job, I hold a driver's license and have a vehicle available for use when required.
Whether it's a role as a Private/Personal cook, Pastry Chef, Chef for events, Family cook or a Cook for Childcare/School, I’m open to any full-time, live-out opportunities that may come my way. Currently, my schedule allows me to be available throughout the day from Monday to Friday, and Saturday mornings.
I bring along a passion for cooking, a dedication to delivering high-quality and customized culinary experiences and proficiency in English. I am excited to blend your dietary preferences with my culinary expertise to create a menu that is not only delicious but also mindful of your preferences.
Originally, hailing from Canada and now settled in London, I’m ready to bring some international flavors to your plates right away!
