    Here's a testimonial letter from a recent graduate:

    Thank you so much for providing a seminar with substance! It is a relief to know there are pros out there willing to teach and share without gouging me on a price for a personal chef training program. I already KNOW how to cook, what I needed to know was how to set up and operate a successful business.

    I did the research on groups and when I discovered the APPCA is the group that originated the 2-day jump start seminars that have been copied and that the APPCA has been teaching the 2-day seminars for over 19 years, I knew I was in good hands.

    What a seminar! The written materials and the commitment and professionalism of the seminar leaders made all the difference. I loved the APPCA seminar, and I know I am going to love being a successful personal chef. Thank you for your hard work and commitment to helping people like myself live the lives we love.

    Many thanks,

    Chef David
