As a passionate culinary chef with over 5 years experience as a cook and commis chef,i have always had a passion for food and since an early age have been experimenting with recipes and different foods and I like to spend time doing this.

Also, I possess expertise in handling food rotating activities and overseeing food supplies inventory
