PRIVATE CHEF JOB DESCRIPTION
Besides the training and talent required for preparing food that pleases the palate of the employer the Chef needs to have a temperament that is very flexible to last minute changes, special requests and the differing personalities of the family and friends being served. Private Chefs should have a good understanding of various styles of table service, party protocols and the job duties of other staff.
The ability to maintain a record of family and guest preferences is important as well a willingness to be alert to requests to try different things. Abilities to shop carefully for quality and to manage the kitchen for efficiency, cleanliness and cost effectiveness are valued by employers. Salaries range from $45,000 to $90,000 with benefits. Usually this is a live out position.
