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.

Creating delicious meals is on my mind almost 24/7 - I find myself constantly thinking about new ways to combine different flavours and textures. My mom frequently tells this story of me as a wee toddler pushing a chair into the kitchen chanting "I help! I help!" whenever she would be preparing us a tasty treat. This continued throughout my childhood (minus the chair once I was tall enough haha) to the point that I took over cooking the majority of dinners for my family when I was in middle school. I excelled in the hospitality classes offered by my school and even got accepted to a summer cooking class at Algonquin College when I was 13 - bless my mom for supporting the intense baking obsession that followed when I would come home from school every day to bake whatever new idea popped into my mind! Now that I'm all grown up and out on my own, I've hosted many dinner parties for friends and family and am very excited to self-publish my first cookbook in June 2024. There is nothing that compares to the joy I feel when I see someone's face light up eating a meal I've prepared for them! I am happiest when sharing my passion for food with those who appreciate the art of cooking from the heart. I would love nothing more than to pamper you and your family with hearty (and healthy) home-cooked meals to support your every day living. I hope to feed you soon :) I've worked in Respite care on and off for 8 years which included daily meal prep for a family of 7 with food allergies/dietary restrictions.

Hello, I am Reza with over 20 years of experience in the food industry. In addition to everyday food, I am experienced in cooking vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free meals. I started my culinary journey as a cook and later moved to customer service and restaurant management. Since 2022, I have worked as a private cook/personal care, providing meals, and care for seniors and cancer patients. I currently work full-time but enjoy participating in occasional and special events, cooking, setting up, serving, and everything food-related. My strength, however, is in my palette. I have a developed palate and can be valuable in tweaking those subtle flavors. I appreciate your consideration
