   Character Reference For Chef

To {professional acquaintance}:

When I learned that Chef {Name} would be leaving for {City}, my immediate thought was my loss is your gain. I am happy to make this introduction, and urge you to hire {Name}.

They are skilled in everything from recipe creation to execution. They are especially gifted in {technique/style}. I occasionally relied on {Name} for front-of-house, and they excelled there as well. They also bring a no-drama experience to the kitchen, and I know you know how rare this is!

As you can see from their resume, {Name} was a standout at culinary school. However, I can attest that in many ways, they are self-taught, and go above and beyond what I would expect from even a chef with decades of experience. I have never had a chef who was so immediately at home in my kitchen. Within a week, I was entrusting them with menu development as well as tasks usually taken on by myself or the restaurant manager.

Above all, every dish {Name} creates is delicious. I dread telling our customers that they have moved on. I’m honestly jealous that you have the opportunity to bring them on board.
