National Personal Chef’s Day

National Personal Chef Day is a holiday that’s observed on July 16th and honors the men and women who work hard at the job of being a personal chef. Unlike a private chef, who only works for one household, personal chefs work for a number of different clients. They bring their culinary skills into a person’s home when they need them the most and prepare delicious and healthy meals for them.

Sometimes, personal chefs prepare meals outside of a person’s home as well that can be delivered to them at a later time. This is a great day for people who are personal chefs to give themselves a pat on the back or to give a shout-out to a personal chef that they know.

The History Of National Personal Chef Day

This holiday was first created by the United States Personal Chef Association to pay homage to those people who are working hard as personal chefs.
