National Personal Chef Day is a day that honors both women and men who work as personal chefs. One of the reasons why this holiday appeared on the calendar is the confusion in professions. Many people confuse the profession of a personal chef, who works with different clients, and a private chef, who works in the home of one client. So, every year on July 16, we honor our personal chef. These masters work directly in the client’s house or in their restaurant, and the dishes are delivered to the client’s home.

The History

National Personal Chef Day was proposed to be celebrated by representatives of the Association of Personal Chefs. In America, the demand for such culinary specialists is growing every year. The number of personal chefs who are members of the Association is increasing every year, membership in this organization helps masters develop, organize their business, undergo training, and take part in conferences.
