A personal chef is an individual who prepares meals for families and, sometimes, for business organizations. One can train to become a personal chef. Others who are naturally skilled in cooking can start taking in clients. But it is highly recommended that someone get formal training through vocational courses or obtain a culinary degree from a university.

Personal chefs are responsible for preparing anything edible. They are in charge of the whole process of preparing meals, from planning a menu to cleaning the kitchen after all the work is done. There are many opportunities for personal chefs, since they can find employment in guest homes, on yachts and private planes, and in family homes.
