My name is Shannon. I am a 31yr old mom that LOVES to cook. Im not a professional by all means, but I have been cooking since 11yrs old. I come from a family of southern gals that has passed down an awesome talent, as well as many family recipes. I love to read cookbooks, watch food channels, and try all kinds of new things in the kitchen! I have taught friends how to cook and am known for guiding people in the kitchen even over the telephone. I've hosted and cooked for a number of events for family, friends, others as recommended. A few events have included retirement parties, holiday parties, church events, sorority functions, small weddings, birhtday's and cookouts.
My dilemma is this: Even with so many different experiences, i still dont know how to promote myself. I would love to become a private cook or possibly get recommended for many events on a more regular basis. People love my cooking, but the jobs come so scarce. Im not licensed, Ive never cooked for anyone professional and I dont have a culinary degree, but i would really like to get myself out there. Is there anyone that can advise me in taking the steps to do this? I know this isnt something that comes easy, but im really interested in just cooking behind my own closed doors. I would appreciate any advice given.
Thank you in advance!
Peace & Blessings,
