We've gone through several changes since when we started off in 2001 as The Canadian Personal Chef Alliance - or CPC Alliance. Since then, we have evolved and grown and are now known as
The Chef Alliance.
Today, we are Canada's leading association for Personal Chefs, Private Chefs, Cooks, Home-cooks, Caterers, Food Stylists, Meal Kit businesses, Artisan or Cottage-Industry food producers and many others.
Over the past 20 years, thousands of Canadian consumers have trusted The Chef Alliance to help them find trustworthy, reliable professional Personal Chefs and Private Chefs. It's just one of the reasons why you can depend on us to help you grow your business.
As a member of The Chef Alliance, you have access to:
- low-cost liability insurance to protect your business,
- training courses to help you through the trials of running a small business,
- business support from our experienced Success Managers,
- a range of member benefits to save you and your business money.
Increasingly, Personal Chefs and Private Chefs are found working in the kitchens of average Canadian families. Much like a gardening or cleaning service, these professionals are becoming an integral part of our lives. Longer commute times, dual-income households and hectic extra-curricular activity schedules make cooking healthy meals difficult for families. Sure, there are lots of meal-delivery, frozen meal and meal-kit options, but these are not ideal for every household.
This is where Personal Chefs and Private Chefs come in, because they tailor menus specifically to each clients' dietary needs - taking allergies, likes/dislikes, health goals etc. into consideration. Meals are freshly prepared in the clients' homes. Personal Chefs can cook for several clients - on a daily basis or on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly schedule, and can also handle small dinner parties and private cooking lessons. Private Chefs cook daily for a single family or client.
A Personal Chef will provide a range of culinary services to many individuals and businesses; a Private Chef, on the other hand, works for a single family or business. Services include:
- menu planning
- recipe development
- daily/ weekly/ monthly meal preparation
- dinner parties
- cooking classes for individuals or groups
- cocktail parties and small event catering
- barbecues and outdoor events
- and much more!
