    Hi to all of the personal and private chefs out there!

    My name is Dania I'm a personal vegetarian (actually pescatarian) chef. I am currently leading my business through a few changes and as part of it decided to join one of the personal chef associations out there.

    Basically I'm debating between APPCA and USPCA.

    Some of my expectations from the membership/association:

    an active members board that would provide support

    provide software or internet based platform for client and recipe management (I'm a mac user and all the software I found is for window users)

    offer (reliable) liability insurance

    ...and also, helping with free listing/advertising never hurts.

    I am not looking for place that would teach me how to cook or to provide me with recipes.

    I would love to hear the input from any members of these associations (or any other that I didn't mention).

    Many thanks!

    Hi all,

    Just to let you all know that I discover the truth why APPCA has not been accommodating to its members.  The woman who answered the phone on when I made the call on 09/18/2015 at 3:45pm, stated that her husband and her are going to declare bankruptcy with the organization.  So be wary of join gin APPCA when there are no guarantees that you will get your worth in benefits or your money back.  

    Best,

    Chef Matt
