Hi DJ, while I was never a chef I worked in the hospitality industry (restaurant mgr and director of catering for a hotel) for several years. I am not sure how quickly you will get to be a private chef in a household without, first, obtaining commercial experience in a restaurant/hotel setting. It's long hours whether you work the morning shift (breakfast/lunch) or afternoon/evening shift (lunch/dinner). A lot of time goes into planning menus, ordering produce, meats, etc from vendors, food/meal preparation and learning/understanding kitchen sanitation. Culinary school is a standard way of starting but I have also known people that have worked their up in the system (ie. started as a waiter/waitress, food runner, dishwasher, line cook) and took some essential hospitality management/culinary classes in their spare time and became a Sous Chef and Executive Chef. Best of luck!

Expect very long hours. You have to go to culinary school to be a chef. It is a lifestyle not a career.

A true chef does not go into this profession for the money, He does it for love of what he or she creates . they sacrifice years of training in school
and then they train in an actual restaurant learning every station . nights. weekends . holidays 10 12 14 hours a day learn from the best you can ..that education you cannot buy,,, then maybe after years of this .you might be called chef.. Anthony before me said it best .....Its not a career but a lifestyle....
