Hi to all of the personal and private chefs out there!
I have this post up also on the professional chef forum with no response so I thought this might be a better place to post it (I can't figure out how to remove it from there.
My name is Dania I'm a personal vegetarian (actually pescatarian) chef. I have a successful personal chef business and 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).
