Created by the United States Personal Chef Association (USPCA), July 16 is National Personal Chef Day and celebrates personal chefs and the unique service they perform – preparing meals for busy households, seniors, those with special dietary needs, or kitchen klutzes who should stay as far away from the kitchen as possible.
If you’re lucky enough to have a personal chef, thank him or her for the delicious food they prepare for you every day. You might even consider giving them the day off, even if it means living off of easy-to-make sandwiches for a day.
If you don’t have a personal chef and are interested in hiring one but don’t know where to start, the USPCA can help you find a personal chef in your area.
