Personal Chef Jobs in New York, NY

Plan, prepare, and store several weeks’ worth of food in residential homes. Personal chefs are hired to assemble, package, and preserve approximately one to two weeks’ worth of meals. It is also common for them to devise entire menus and perform the grocery shopping for their clients. Because they serve several clients, they must have strong organizational skills to ensure that they meet all deadlines and design varied menus for each.

Personal chefs must also be capable of creating meals to meet many different needs, as they may have to cook for a range of dietary restrictions/preferences. Additionally, they should be adept at producing specialty dishes and cooking for larger groups of people, as they may be asked to cater events.
