To put it very basically, I cook everyday dinners for people who don't like to cook, can't cook or just don't have the time to cook. I do a detailed survey with the client to find out what they like, don't like, can or can't eat, etc. Then from that information, I come up with a menu for the client to approve.

This isn't just for the very wealthy. If a family of 4 went to Olive Garden 5 times, they would pay virtually the same as they would pay me to make them 5 meals. That doesn't include drinks, desserts, appetizers, waiting for a table, noisy dining areas, traffic and all the other things that often come with eating out. Plus, you get to eat your tasty dinner in your sweats if you want!
I just came across a good article about some personal chefs in Connecticut (in The Stamford Times). It features 2 chefs. The first one sounds a little bit more like me than the second--he made a career change to become a PC. Don't forget to check out my website (at the top of this page) and let me know if you have any questions!
I hope this helps to take some of the mystery out of what a personal chef does and lets you see how I could take some of the stress out of your dinner time!
