    Do you need a certificate to be a personal chef ? I live in Georgia I am a home cook,However people are always asking me questions and or for me to come help them when they are having parties or events and i wind cooking  all the meals, this may be a start for me .Just  want to  know any input will definitely help.

    Nope.

    You WILL need, depending on your local jurisdictions,:
    • a business license
    • a resellers permit (sales tax)
    • zoning approval (home business)
    and you SHOULD have:
    • Liability insurance, probably $2 million
    • Food Safety Manager's certificate (not a Food Handlers card)
    and you might want to talk with Candy Wallace, Executive Director
