Challenges for Personal Chefs
While personal chefs are spared from some of the specific challenges of trying to serve many people efficiently in a space that's often not designed for such a purpose, there are some particular challenges that they must face.
Many people don't realize how lonely being a personal chef can be. Since you generally won't see your clients except during the initial meeting, you'll be driving, shopping, and cooking on your own most of the day. Some chefs love the quiet and independence, while others need the noise and hustle and bustle of a restaurant or large commercial catering kitchen.
You will have to live without the immediate gratification of watching guests devour your creations. In most cases, you'll have to wait for feedback from the client, or a call booking another cook date.
