Review by Debbie Mazo
Up until now, private chefs have been a luxury that only the affluent can afford. with all the time challenges that individuals and families currently face, it's not surprising that more and more people are searching for help when it comes to organizing healthy, appetizing meals. To the rescue comes the Personal Chefs Network (PCN)—a worldwide association of chefs offering professional meal planning and cooking services in your home.
What can a personal chef offer you? Personal chefs involved with PCN first interview you and your family to determine your likes, dislikes, and any food reactions you or your family may have. Using this personal information, they then shop for fresh ingredients and arrive at your home to prepare make-ahead meals to your specifications. Once complete, your personal chef then leaves you with a menu and all the directions you'll need to serve the meals when ready!
To get a taste of what the cooks at PCN can prepare for you, locate a member of the Personal Chefs Network who resides in your area. You can then browse through a personalized website to discover more about the chef's services or favorite creations. On the PCN homepage, you'll also find a handful of recipes ( Cannoli Cake and Beef Burgundy are the current monthly choices) as well as tips and quips from a PCN Chef that will make life in your kitchen a breeze.
If your passion has ever leaned towards preparing fine food for small groups, PCN serves up all the information you'll need for becoming a personal chef. Check out the FAQ for Aspiring PCs to find out the ideal qualifications for a personal chef, or browse through a real-time forum for chef wannabes considering the profession. Whether you're looking to hire a personal chef or have a burning desire to be one, the kitchen at PCN is always open!
