    Hi ChefTalk,

    I just joined the community...and after 35 years in the office - I am taking the challenge of following my passion. I will be starting out as a Private Chef.

    I need advice on pricing my service, and how to start my own blog and website.

    My expertise is from my roots, South Indian cooking with fusion - influenced by South African culture and fresh amazing produce.

    Thank you

    Welcome.

    Your fees are best determind by the scope of work ,your location,  and your overall experience. Estimated time to prepare and finish the task asked of you, also should be considered. Also do they entertain a lot? if so how many guest at a time average?
