Increasingly, Personal Chefs and Private Chefs are found working in the kitchens of average Canadian families. Much like a gardening or cleaning service, these professionals are becoming an integral part of our lives.
Mise En Place, Meal Kit, Recipe Box and Meal-Prep Services prepare and portion produce, protein and grains, ready to be incorporated into recipes cooked by clients, and they're a fast-growing sector across Canada.
'Cottage industry' or small-batch, artisan food producers make a variety of food items - jams, sauces, pickles, juices, power drinks, baby food, specialty teas, baked goods, spice blends, desserts, ethnic foods, smoked meat... the list goes on and on!
Chefs and Culinary Instructors are found working in the kitchens of average Canadian families and in schools, stores and commercial kitchens to hold private one-on-one, group recreational and group institutional cooking lessons.
Pop-up restaurants are gaining in popularity and are a great way for non-restauranteurs to promote their businesses to a local community, using existing commercial kitchen or restaurant space; they appear for a short time only, e.g. a single day or a week.
Prepared meal services have exploded on to the culinary scene. Meals are typically prepared in shared commercial kitchen settings and are ordered in advance as a one-off service or as a regular meal service for busy families, offices and professionals.
The growing home-based food sharing industry is a great revenue stream for foodies who cook at home. It's easy to call it a hobby, but at the end of the day, a business is still a business - from a tax, insurance and food safety standpoint.
Catering companies serve prepared food or live cooking stations to a multitude of people - from private catering of a small dinner party in a client's home to a larger event, such as a wedding, outdoor event or corporate event
As a more intimate and relaxed alternative to restaurant dining, Chefs are offering in-home dinner services across the country. The Chefs create menus with their clients, then cook onsite and serve dinner to guests - even the dishes are taken care of - no stress, no mess.
Food stylists prepare food for photos to be used in traditional print publications, for online publications, blogs, social media feeds etc. In addition, the food could be used on set for films, music videos, advertisements and so on. The job of a Food Stylist is to make the food look visually appealing.
Recipe Researching and Writing services and Menu Planning services don't often get considered. As demand grows for new content, traditional and online publications look to Recipe Writers and Researchers to provide interesting and relevant recipes for magazines, blogs, websites, and social media.
