How Does The PCA™ Work? There are as many different ways to apply the Personal Chef Approach™ to your own home, as there are members using it! Through doing, you’ll find your own groove. These are the basic steps, and how I make the most efficient use of my time as a culinary professional.
Flexibie: As a home cook you will enjoy much more flexibility. For instance, I know some of my members prefer to purchase the groceries and prep all the ingredients at once, but only cook one or two meals in advance. Since they’ve already planned the week ahead, bought the groceries, and prepped the ingredients for the remaining meals that week – it still comes together very quickly for them on the night.
Convenience: Some like to double batches, so they cook less often (freezing the extra servings), while others like to cook all at once like I do. They have more spare time on the weekend, and find fun ways of making it a family activity! Cooking together is a unique way to bond with your significant other and/or children while teaching them a skill they will need when they fly the nest (plus a practical lesson in applying math and science skills). Or, perhaps you would prefer some quiet “me time?” Let cooking be a form of meditation where you let go of all of the day’s stresses and focus on creating something wonderful.
Enjoyable: Regardless of how you do it, the important thing is to jump in and get your hands dirty! Adjust your attitude to one of finding joy in cooking instead of approaching it as a chore. You will cook less frequently with the PCA™, so cooking may become more enjoyable, plus you’ll never have to be the household’s short order cook again! There will already be a selection of meals to choose from. Members should also search threads in the forum for additional ways to deal with fussy eaters.
No Experience Necessary: Remember, “if you can read, you can cook”, and if you get stuck, you are never alone in the kitchen – pop into the forum, and ask for help (or share your ideas, successes, and thoughts). I’m in there frequently, and many of our members enjoy supporting and sharing with each other too. It works like any community – the more you participate, the more you will gain from taking part.

The Good Life
Enjoy the luxury lifestyle of my celebrity clients, without the luxury price tag. With just a few hours effort on the weekend, scrumptious dinners will go from fridge to table in as little as 5 minutes on hectic weekday nights, and you'll have time to relax and enjoy life.
The average person responsible for getting dinner on the table nightly spends 8-10 hours a week looking for recipes, planning menus, shopping, preparing, and cleaning up after dinner. The Personal Chef Approach does everything for you, that I do for my celebrity clients, except the actual shop and cook part - you do that in less than half the time you used to.
Most of us don't have enough hours in the day to do all we would like to do, so how much is your time worth? Personal Chef Approach members save up to 7 extra hours a week to spend with their family and friends doing the things that matter most, instead of worrying about dinner nightly. Plus, membership pays for itself in grocery savings alone. You buy only what you need, and prepare it all in one go, so none of your groceries end up spoiling before you get around to using them. Even if your plans change at the last minute, you can pop dinner in the freezer for a later date, and nothing goes to waste.
Improving your lifestyle and health is so much easier when you have the Personal Chef Approach to keep healthier choices readily available when you need them. You will be much less likely to opt for the fast food fix.
Recipe Library and Recipe Scaler
Access an extensive catalog of original recipes. Every recipe has been tested and approved multiple times by the clients of my multi-award winning Personal Chef Service. Many recipes also offer variations to accommodate specific tastes and are so easy that even the novice cook will be rocking out dinner from the start. Just remember, “if you can read, you can cook!” You can also increase or decrease your serving size to adjust measurements to suit your specific household needs.
Custom Menu Plan Builder
Eliminate any guesswork and save time with an entire week’s worth of meal ideas. Easily tailored to your family’s specific tastes, detailed menu plans come with easy recipes, ready-to-go grocery shopping lists, and heat-to-eat instructions, or you can save recipes from the library to build your very own custom menu plan. A grocery list and heat to eat instructions will automatically generate!
Quick Healthy Dinners
The Personal Chef Approach means dinner's ready. All you have to do is heat to, and that is faster than going through the fast food drive-thru.
