- Personal Chef services conducted in a client's home or premises, with up to 25 diners.  For this service, food must be prepared on-site, not in a commercial kitchen or elsewhere.  It can apply to the traditional personal chef service (customised freezer-friendly meals), private cooking classes in a client's home or commercial premises, dinner parties, BBQs, menu planning services, mis-en-place services etc.

Onsite catering with up to 200 guests - this Large Event Coverage option can be added at any time throughout your membership.

- Artisan food-producers (or cottage industry food producers) who prepare small batches of foods for sale at Farmer's Markets, local events/fairs, etc.

- Culinary or Chef Instructors conducting recreational or institutional cooking lessons of up to 25 people.

- Artisan or Personal bakers making one-off custom cakes, pastries, cupcakes and cookies etc. for sale directly to clients.

- Prepared meal services or meal kits, where meals or ingredients are prepared in a commercial kitchen, packaged and then either delivered to the client or where the client collects them from the commercial kitchen.

- Meal services where meals are prepared in the Chef's own home (subject to municipal licensing, insurance, health and safety protocols etc.) for clients, where the clients can either have the meals delivered or picked up from the home (recommended that Chefs have a lawyer draft a release for the clients, indicating that they understand that the meals will be prepared in Chef's kitchen not a commercial facility, and that transporting foods must be done in accordance with food safety protocols).

frequently asked questions


The first term of membership is for a maximum of 1 year, ending on June 30th (the “Term”).  So, for example, if you start a new membership in December, the first term of membership is only for 7 months - from December until the upcoming June 30th.  Renewals occur automatically on July 1st each year to give members continuous liability protection and seamless access to member benefits.  Cancellations of upcoming membership terms (renewals) must be received by our office no later than April 1st.

We also offer Short Term Memberships - including 1-month, 3-month and 6-month options.  If you select one of these options and later decide to extend to a regular membership, expiring on June 30th 2021, we will simply apply any fees already paid to the cost of a regular membership, so that only the incremental amount will be due and payable to extend it.  This gives you the flexibility to extend, if required, without the initial long-term commitment.  Short Term Memberships also include our member benefits and liability insurance.
