Attending a live seminar and interacting with personal-chef peers can be a powerful and invaluable experience. But not everyone can travel to attend a live seminar.

It includes:

  • Detailed explanations of forms, systems and procedures.
  • Discussions and role-playing exercises between seminar attendees and seminar leaders.
  • Anecdotal stories that will help you understand the real-life challenges and solutions of being a personal chef. Collect real life personal chef pearls of wisdom.
  • A wealth of valuable time- and money-saving tips, and gives you an opportunity to view a sense of the rhythm of a personal-chef cook date.
  • Member questions and answers.
  • Instruction on how to get the most out of the Private Members Discussion Forums, where you can share stories, get ideas, and build your network. It includes more than 100,000 searchable, topic-specific posts by working personal chefs. This is a “Personal Chef Graduate School,” of sorts, as it is the most comprehensive knowledge base available in the personal-chef industry.
