Hiring a Personal Chef

 

A personal chef is a specialist who creates a customized menu for clients either in clients' kitchens or their own. These professionals offer an initial consultation to discuss the clients' tastes and dietary needs. They plan and design meals according to clients' preferences and specifications. These specialists also shop for meal ingredients and prepare and package meals based on the customer's taste palates. An experienced chef helps individuals with dietary restrictions, preparing a healthy diet plan for clients of all age groups. These include managing a dairy-free diet, gluten-free diet, paleolithic diet, a vegan diet, or a ketogenic diet, among others. Depending on the nature of the job, personal chefs work alone or with a team of assistants. They can work for clients, in corporate offices, or as part of the hospitality industry. Some chefs get hired in private households, as a live-in employee while others work freelance or as subcontractors. Chefs who work in this field earn an average salary of $52,750 annually.

Basic job functions

Most personal chefs cook the meals in the employer's kitch­en, while others use their own pantry and kitchen to prepare the meals. The daily responsibilities of the chef include coordinating with the client, developing a meal plan, purchasing necessary groceries, and beginning the meal prep. In some cases, the meals are prepared in advance for consumption at a later date. In case of dinner parties or other celebrations hosted by the employer, personal chefs are required to serve food to the clients' guests in addition to meal preparation. They are also responsible for maintaining the quality and hygiene of the food and sanitation needs of the workspace. They also ensure that the meals are prepared in a way to avoid waste. Since they work with a variety of kitchen appliances and culinary tools, they are in charge of their upkeep and maintenance as well. In general, they are required to test recipes, experiment with equipment, and look for the most cost-effective means to serve meals to the client. Apart from this, they are required to keep detailed records of clients' food allergies and dietary limitations for future reference. 

Criteria for employment

The candidates applying for the position must have a high school diploma or a GED along with a bachelor's or an associate's degree in culinary arts. Hiring managers prefer applicants with a proven culinary experience. To be successful in this position, the candidate should have knowledge of different cuisines and have an understanding of food health and safety regulations. Ultimately, a top-notch personal chef must be able to handle criticism and work towards client satisfaction at all times. They must be detail-oriented and demonstrate exceptional customer service, communication, and time management skills. Applicants with a strong understanding of nutrition have a better chance of getting hired.
