Here is what Jane Brody says in her "Good Food Book": Soy powder-heat-treated and useful as a protein boost in foods that will be minimally cooked Soy flour-ground defatted saybeans commonly used to boost the nutritional value of pasta, breads, pancakes and other foods that will be throughly cooked. So looks like soy flour may be something you want to look into. I have used it before and seems to work great--no funny taste or change in texture. I've added 1/4c in place of 1/4c of wheat flour. Let us know how it works!

Message:
Rush has a personal chef! Isn't that great? It helps him with his weight management. He loves that he doesn't have to make many food decisions, just pick from what is available in the fridge. He did say that he thought most people wouldn't be able to afford a personal chef, so that is why he didn't talk about it before yesterday. Here is what we need to do; write and call him to let him know that we are personal chefs, entrepreneurs living the American dream. Tell him that personal chefs are indeed affordable to the "regular" guy. Tell him about the APCA. Tell him how you positively affect the lives of your clients. His email address is: rush@eib.net Rush is one of the most highly listened to radio shows of all time. Just the fact that he talked about pcs puts our industry in the mainstream. Take advantage of it! Sharon

Hi chefs! I've had THE most incredible day, reading the APCI manual, trying to decide exactly where to begin...it really is a lot of information to sift through, and the start-up expenses can seem a little overwhelming once you add up licenses and insurances, etc...One thing that has been extremely helpful to me is meeting with SCORE volunteers...these people, the Service Corps of Retired Executives, volunteer their time to advise you on issues ranging from required licenses and insurance, to connections they have in the community for finding potential clients. The gentlemen I spoke with today know officials with a local retirement recreation facility, and they offered to set up a "personal chef demonstration" for me...WOW! What an opportunity...and it's free...I thought I'd share this valuable resource with others just embarking on this totally exciting career...for the SCORE near you, you can call your local chamber of commerce...Best of luck...

It's not a huge center, but it has potential! No, I haven't marketed to new mothers before, but I think it is an untapped market so I am going to persue it. I'll keep you posted. Cheers, Sharon I've just started 'roaming' through this forum. I'll officially join the group shortly and look forward to a lot of exchanges. I just wanted you to know that your messages have added to the attraction of this group. You have some really great ideas and know all appreciate your sharing them. I'm so looking forward to starting my PC business...like the idea of dinner classes as well as the daycare center. Since marketing is my weakness, I am deeply grateful to finding your words. And, yes, new mothers seem like a great market. I have two daughters who are relatively new mothers and they've often said how they wish I were nearer to teach them more.

The other is an elderly woman and her husband in Upper Marlboro, desperate for some good food! If anyone is interested, or knows someone who might be, please contact me! E-mail me directly.

I have a little experience with this making food for commercials. One thing is to get some ASPIC (clear gelitin) and spray the food with that. It makes it look fresh and brings out the colors. Use a pinch of baking soda in the water for green veggies, it makes them real green. Experiment with this as too much soda can also turn veggies to mush. When I say a pinch, I mean a pinch. Height is very important also, the food needs dimension and depth of field. I hope this helps.

Hey, what's going on out there? My ears are burning! Hellloooo...... Sharon.....waiting until February Your ears should be burning - your name came up often, and everyone is looking forward to spending time with you personally. The San Diego seminar group was terrific - lots of brain-storming - lots of great ideas, and lots of support chef-to-chef. I expect big things from everyone who is taking the information home with them to get started on their new personal chef services. The Timpano I served on Saturday was also a big hit, and the chefs are going to be playing with variations on that theme. Thanks to everyone who attended - it was wonderful meeting and spending time with each of you, and I am looking forward to working with all of you. Bon Appetit! Candy

I have my 2.5 minutes of fame coming this week when I will do a noontime news program. The interview will be with myself and the TV person sitting in armchairs with a coffee table between us. I will have 2 entrees sitting there so they can see some typical meals. I am concerned as to how they will present since this is my first time! Any tips are appreciated!

I love it when the timing is right, especially when it happens all by itself! The piece about pcs aired on tv Thursday night. It was a decent piece, although the pc didn't think through the importance of plate presentation and how her products would look on tv. (just a lack of experience on her part). Last night I participated in a fund raiser for an expensive private school (a huge, big thanks to June Flilpski who drove 2 hours to come here and help me cook for the event. I nver could have done it without her!). The tv journalist who did the pc piece was there, as well as the news anchor, who at the end of the pc piece looked into the camera and said, "Where do you find a personal chef, anyway?" When he walked up to my tables I said, "Where do you find a pc? Why, right in front of you!" We had a laugh and he took some brochures. All night, people were asking me if the piece was about me. Apparently, many, many people saw it, which is just terrific! I took 80 brochures with me and came home with just 30. The journalist told me she got some phone calls from people looking for a pc after they saw the show and she gave them my number. More clients, oh goodie! Sharon

As some of you move into the senior market you will discover that due to dental problems, complications of a stroke or for other medical reasons some clients will need to have their food pureed. The inclination is to just puree the food or limit the menus to soft foods. Let me tell you that there is a whole world of options for soft diets that includes re-creating pureed foods that will make them eye-appealing. Some clients will need to have thickened liquids as well and there are ways to even thicken beer! I am going to be doing a cooking class through the hospital on this very subject and I am more than happy to share the recipes and information with our APCA members.

She's very excited and although I've got lots of ideas of my own, figured I can always use fresh ideas...plus working with a student will save me $$. As a matter of fact, a marketing professor at another local university said if interested, she'll assign my business as a class project next semester...for FREE! Can't beat that. I look forward to hearing from you!

Candy, You mentioned back in August that you were expecting to have a category/classification from the insurance industry for PC's soon. Have you heard anything. If so, is there an estimate of the premium and a contact for a policy. Thanks Hi, Angela. We're in the process of waiting for the collateral materials to be prepared by the insurance carrier so they can be mailed out to our membership, along with rates and application forms. The receipt of this info is imminent, and we'll send it out as soon as we receive it. Thanks for your question. C.

We would be happy to fax the survey to you also. However, we need to get surveys faxed back before Thursday the 5th. Let me know today Best, Dane & Karen

We got through with our client early, due in large part to the quickness of our gal, Frances! She is really a do-er, I can tell you. I have every confidence that Frances is going to be a terrific Personal Chef. Thanks so much for coming up here today, Frances. I had a good time. Sharon

To put it in it's simplest terms... If you are the head of the kitchen you are the 'CHEF'. It doesn't matter if you have been to school or not. Robert is right. Check the definition in Larousse Gastronomique - anyone who cooks in a restaurant, institution or home for a client is a chef. Personal Chefs have been around for several thousand years - the concept is not new, we're just "fine tuning" it.

Thanks so much for all the work you did compiling the survey. What a tremendous boon for the industry. I plan on going out today with it, to the shopping center and asking people to participate. I hope everyone else in the APCA will get involved and do the same. The time crunch is on, as I believe they have to be finished in a day or two, so if you haven't gotten your copy, ask for the survey today and do what you can to help. Cheers, Sharon Lost on the servey. I havent seen anything on it. could you please up date me on all about it. Thank you Chef Bogart

Interested in starting personal chef service in california's central valley. Can anyone help in finding out if there are similar services in this area ? Also information on specialty services such as diabetic and mexican cuisine would be appreciated, thank you. Yes check out the web pages from the A.P.C.A. and the USPCA. That would give you a nice list. On the diabetic & Mexican plus all other nationalities, I would get ahold of the Culinary Instituate of American there in California, and get a list of there week and weekend courses.

Donna, Something I have learned over the years is that people are willing to believe that you are what you say you are. It is up to you to do your part to be what you are you say you are. Other people, the ones you want to cook for are going to be eager to accept you as a Chef because you are going to be doing a great service for them. They want to eat, they want you to make it for them. Forget about being intimidated by what they *might* think of you. Concentrate on the way you will be contributing to their quality of life. What can you say about what makes you a Chef? You are a proud member of the American Personal Chef Association. That's what qualifies you. Have fun with it, Donna! Sharon
