Private Chef Application

While we are always seeking talented chefs to represent, we want our new applicants to understand that collaborative is in our nature and in our name. We stand alone as an agency that takes care of all marketing, client introductions, billing, and new prospects while collaborating on client satisfaction. We want our chefs to feel celebrated by The Cooking Collaborative team while understanding they are still running and representing their own private chef business, one they should be proud of.

Our agency only enhances your business excellence. We can’t wait to collaborate & represent your talents.
