Listen to what our students are saying...


Although I think she would be a wonderful celebrity chef, this is not a personality-driven course about cuteness and theories -- it is about what it takes to start and run a successful personal chef business, from a woman who has done it!

My recommendation to any future, novice or experienced personal chef entrepreneur - take this course NOW! You will receive a tremendous amount of expert level information through intelligent, in-depth, entertaining, genuine and practical - videos, webinars and workbook activities. This school has equipped me with everything I need to get started as a personal chef.

Wendy M.


I've been playing with the idea of a career change and becoming a personal chef for a couple years now. Without the information and guidance provided from Bonnie and Greg, I would have no clue where to start. I would recommend participation to anyone that has even the slightest interest in pursuing a personal chef as a career.

Lastly: If anyone is questioning "Why THIS course?", I would answer "because Bonnie is DOING it and is SUCCESSFUL as a personal chef." Who better to take insight and honest advice from?
