Personal chefs are becoming increasingly more popular, especially in big cities like Manila and Cebu. You typically work for either a single client or several clients, preparing meals and small catered events according to their preferences and dietary needs.
Being a caterer is as close to restaurant cooking as you can get without actually working in a kitchen. Many of the techniques and skills are the same; however, you are typically cooking for large quantities of people and making food that will hold up either on a buffet line or during longer serving times.
You may also get to work in menu creation.
Many caterers run their own small businesses servicing large events, weddings, brown bag lunches, or hotels.
Nutritionists combine culinary skills with a background in science. They study how the human body reacts to specific nutrients in food, often offering dietary consulting or meal preparation for specific dietary needs.
Many nutritionists sell their services much like personal chefs do. Other job opportunities include working for magazines, television shows, or writing books on nutrition.
