APPCA Summit

This past weekend, I attended the American Personal and Private Chef Association Summit in San Diego, CA.  This was my first Summit since starting my personal chef business a year ago.  I really enjoyed the chance to meet other personal chefs from all over the country and to be able to share our different stories.  My favorite session was led by Chef Dana Cox who was part of a self-imposed experiment called the Honest Meal Project, eating only foods grown on family farms--no processed foods.  The founder of APPCA, Candy Wallace, and ALL the speakers were so inspiring.  I left the Summit feeling more energized than ever!

Since 2010, Bonnie has been a successful personal chef in the Orange County area. Since 2011 Bonnie has been booked solid serving busy families, seniors, business professionals, celebrities, and professional athletes. Bonnie centers her cooking style around allergy-friendly and healthy homestyle meals that the whole family can enjoy.

When Bonnie started her Personal Chef business she was grateful for some of the Personal Chef Associations like the APPCA and the USPCA. Unfortunately there was not a fully immersive program available to teach her about building and growing her business. Bonnie decided in 2015 to launch the Personal Chef Guide to help new personal chefs enter the market and grow their business.
