A personal chef offers professional meal preparation services to a client. The client?s individual tastes drive the creation of the personal chef?s customized menu. Personalized meals are prepared in the client\'s home and may be packaged, labeled, and stored in the refrigerator or freezer. A personal chef must focus on meeting the preferences and requirements of his or her employer. He or she needs to be professionally trained and experienced in cooking various cuisines.
To obtain a personal chef job, one typically must have a high school diploma and be trained in the preparation of numerous types of food. Personal chef job candidates should also be adept at preparing food based on customized menus. A bachelor\'s degree in culinary science may be required for high-end personal chef jobs.
