My experience with Foodom that it is much more geared toward the chef and a far better exchange than the other recruiters I’ve worked with. I think you’ve really found the niche of allowing chefs to shine and do what they do best while handling the marketing, finding the clients, menu planning/recipes, and other business aspects. I really appreciate the platform you have created.

"As a chef for over 30 years, I have taught classes, private dinner parties and as Executive Chef for 4 different restaurants. I fell in love with the Foodom concept and with Reneta's vision. It is an incredibly wonderful way for cooks to bring food to people who wouldn't normally experience this type of healthy delicious cuisine. I have met some incredible people while cooking for Foodom and shared some great experiences. The interface and appointment process is extremely smooth and effortless. The payouts come very quickly. If you like cooking and whether you are looking for full time work or something to supplement your income, I can't say enough good things about Foodom."

I am a chef on Foodom, and I love it. My clients are wonderful and so appreciative that I come to their home, cook a bunch of delicious dishes, clean up the kitchen and leave them with instructions on reheating and serving. I do both weekly food prep for them as well as special evenings and events. When they want a change of pace, they book me for "custom" cooks where I cook my recipes or any recipes that they find that they want me to make. I believe our service is a game changer for busy families who want delicious, wholesome dishes prepared for literally any diet or allergy restrictions. Something for everyone on Foodom!
