Hello, my name is Gifty and I am a dedicated and passionate cook based in Ottawa. I am a hardworking woman with three years of experience as a cook across different avenues. I am looking for a full-time role as a cook for Childcare/School, private or family cook, where I can bring in my knowledge of modern cooking technology, sanitary and hygienic standards, and experience in managing other employees. My proficient duties range from cooking children's meals, keeping the kitchen clean, purchasing products, washing dishes, to taking other orders from the employer. I am capable of creating a dynamic menu based on the preferences of the employer. Additionally, I am also skilled in organizing and preparing food for events along with cooking everyday food. My speciality lies in preparing a wide range of African food, in line with my Food Handler’s Certification. Moreover, I am a non-smoker and comfortable in a live-out arrangement, and fully willing to relocate as per the job requirements. Although I do not possess a driver's license or a vehicle, this does not deter my enthusiasm and love for cooking and serving people. I am fluent in English, and I am open to obtaining a police check as per job requirements. I am flexible and available for work during the morning and middle of the day, from Monday to Friday. It is great to mix work and passion, and cooking happens to be where they meet for me. I am ready and eagerly looking forward to starting this journey from the 8th of May, 2024. Look no further if you want a dedicated, passionate, and reliable cook to provide your children, yourself, and families with delicious, balanced meals. I am excited about the opportunity to work with you. I am a very organised and good cook who pays attention to details and my cooking environment. I have a three years working experience for both private and commercial needs.
