In California, to the best of my knowledge, there is no such thing as a "Personal Chef License"

Thank you Peter. I know some states require it and I am just checking on Calif. requirements.

Thanks!

As a personal chef, it is a strange area.  You really have to qualify to the city business license dept. what it is exactly you want to do.  If you want to be a personal or private chef it is very different.  You must prepare everything on site and use the customers equipment and leave only with a check unless you get a caterer's license.  If you are hired as a private chef you do not need a license or anything as you are hired by the individual and can do whatever you agree upon.  If you are working for yourself however and have more than one employee you must also get safe serv certified as well. You must also get an EIN # and contact the FTB. Of course you will need GL too.  If you are teaching classes, you actually fall under the topic of teaching and home based business.  I hope this helps.
