A teenage student chef from Romford has shown she is a recipe for success by landing a job at a top hotel.

Angelika Toporowska will begin her career at The Hilton Canary Wharf after she impressed bosses so much they offered a role as a commis chef.

The 19-year-old, who is enrolled on a hospitality and catering course at Barking and Dagenham College, visited the hotel with other students earlier this year.

Using her own initiative she emailed the head chef asking him for work experience to which he said yes.

This lead to her being offered the job when it was completed.

Angelika is originally from Poland and didn’t speak much English when she first enrolled at the college four years ago.

Her tutor Drew Chipps said: “This is a fabulous opportunity to learn and gain a fully-rounded experience in a professional kitchen.

“The world really is Angelika’s oyster!”
