I was recently informed about a job at a kitchen, working as a general assistant; the tasks would be simple: clearing tables, preparing food, washing up, etc.
However, I've never formally worked in a kitchen environment, but I have some personal experiences with food handling and safety in a kitchen. The job itself was only advertised as word of mouth. I know that I can handle the environment properly, and that I am more than capable of doing the job.
I need to write a cover letter (an email) for it, and because of my lack of experience, I have very little to write about. What I could write about since I have zero formal experience in this area?
