​At The Chef Alliance, we offer Personal Chefs and Private Chefs a range of membership options to suit your business needs - all at a price that you can afford - and can't afford to be without!


Membership is an easy decision to make because you can't put a price on peace of mind. Our range of Membership Benefits* are tailored with your business in mind and these can be customised to suit your personal and business needs and may include the following:



LIABILITY INSURANCE


Chef Insurance Liability Coverage starts at $1,000,000 and goes up to $5,000,000 depending on your business needs.  A survey of other major commercial insurance companies for comparable liability insurance policies to the one offered by The Chef Alliance, produced quotes ranging from $100 to $250 per month for an individual $1,000,000 policy - and that was before COVID-19 hit.  Since COVID-19 rocked economies around the world in 2020, these rates have increased significantly.  At The Chef Alliance, we have been luck enough to be able to maintain our low rates.


With membership in The Chef Alliance, you get Chef Insurance and the other member benefits AND you save money - all adding to your bottom line and a significant addition to your profits.
