/ I am a Cook
So far, I have not written about it here, however many of my friends and guests know it and it means a lot to me. At the end of last year I passed the exam and I am happy to report that I am a cook. Well, let’s start it at the beginning. A long time ago I was a marketing manager and the cooking was only my hobby. I cooked and baked for my family and friends at home and I loved to host them. Then my life changed. Earlier the Kitchen Pixie was only a dream but because my career as marketing manager was finished, suddenly it became a reality.
I founded the Kitchen Pixie and started to organize more culinary programs and I felt it is my way. I wanted to be better and better in this, so I decided to become a cook. I learnt and worked a lot, it was hard work, but I enjoyed every moment of it. (Okay, there were some days in July when the temperature was more than 40 degrees Celsius in the restaurant’s kitchen and I felt it was crazy). During my practice time, I worked in SOFITEL Budapest Chain Bridge Hotel and ARANY KAVIAR Restaurant. I met a lot of fantastic chefs and teachers who helped my development.
Please, let me share the reference from ARANY KAVIAR Restaurant with you:
‘It is my great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Miss Marta Bedö. I have had the pleasure of viewing Miss Bedö’s professional development for 6 month, and I can state with confidence that she is a motivated and responsible person with a high degree of integrity. As such, I expect that she will be a very positive addition to your company.
Marta was a trainee cook in our restaurant in 2016 from March till August. In this role, she had some responsibilities, like taking care of the cold section’s mise en place, and she handled them effortlessly.
She used this period to learn as many different skills and ways of cooking as she could. She had a keen interest in good quality food and new ways and new dishes. She is willing to take over new challenges and responsibilities.
I'm happy to provide further information if required.’
