How Much Does a Personal Chef Cost?

A personal chef is a chef who prepares meals for a family in the comfort of their own home.  This chef can either prepare the meals for the upcoming week or the chef can purchase and create the meals throughout the day.

Commonly done in the home kitchen, a chef will be responsible for gathering all the ingredients, serving the meal and helping with the cleanup process.

The cost of a personal chef is going to depend on the skills/demand of the chef, the geographical location, what kind of plan is needed, how many meals are needed and if any additional services are needed.
