Maeve Guerra,

I am more than happy to recommend Douglas Smith for the position of Chef with your prestigious country club. When Douglas was my student, his comprehension of the art of cooking was well beyond anyone else in the class. His ability to develop a strong menu and bring in customers based on his cuisine was unrivaled.

Douglas also has a strong administrative side to him that will serve him well as your chef. During many of our exercises, Douglas had no problem stepping forward and assuming a position of responsibility. In every instance, Douglas’ crew was the most efficient and successful in the class. His ability to manage was exceptional.

Douglas looks at cooking as an art and he is a very accomplished artist. His original creations are still on the menu here at our school’s restaurant that serves the public and his name is still revered here. I always knew that Douglas would find success as a chef immediately after he graduated.

I have watched Douglas’ career evolve over the years and I can honestly tell you that you cannot find a better chef than Douglas. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to call me at 000-000-0000 or you can email me at

Sincerely Yours,

Francis G. Bert

Chief Instructor

Barrymore School of Cuisine
