You've always said that "someday" you'll start that meal prep or dinner party business, but where do you begin?

Hey, I'm Virginia!

I help cooks and chefs start and build personal chef businesses so they can have control over their own hours and income.

Unlike most personal chef mentors, I don't provide you with a checklist of marketing things to do, but instead introduce you to the principles of marketing so you can build a long lasting business based on referrals and stop wondering where the next client is coming from.

I'll guide you through the steps of starting your own personal chef business so you can have full control over your schedule and make money doing work you love.

With 10 years of experience as a personal chef and a background in marketing, I'll share the tips and tricks I've learned, from how to get clients to pricing your services, and the behind-the-scenes of meal prep and dinner parties.

Everyone had to start somewhere

and everyone has a first day in business


When someone calls to set up a consultation about hiring you as their personal chef, all they're thinking about is, "how can you help me?" They just want to know if you’re able to help them with their problem. Potential clients are thinking about menu offerings you can provide them for meal prep. They’re not at all wondering where you went to school, how long you’ve been in business, or what your liability insurance covers. Their only concern is how you can help them.

Regardless of your culinary education or business experience, there are clients for every background, experienced or novice. Everyone had to start somewhere and everyone has a first day in business.
