   Targeted Cover Letter

I would like to express my interest in the position of prep cook at XYZ. I can see from your post that you value comprehensive experience, and I have no small amount of experience in the food industry. Having worked my entire adult life in restaurants, I know the ins and outs as a bar back, busser, waiter, chef, prep cook, and manager.

Your restaurant has always been a pinnacle of culinary exploration and innovation, and your foray into Korean-Mexican fusion is of great interest to me. As my experience meets both your requirements and your preferences, I will address my qualifications as follows:

You Request… I Have…
4+ years in food service industry 8 years' combined experience at ABC, DEF, and GHI restaurants
2+ years in a management capacity Manager at GHI from 2012 - Present
Food prep experience preferred 3 years' experience prepping dinner entrees at DEF
Culinary degree preferred 2-year degree from JKL Culinary Institute.

As DEF was also an exclusively-Korean restaurant, I am well-versed in the various delicacies and techniques in creating and experimenting with Korean dishes.

I will contact you next week to set up a time to discuss this fantastic opportunity further. Thank you for your time and consideration.
