How I Can Help You 

You want to eat well but it takes time to find the ingredients and plan the meals. After starting my business in 1998, I have learned a lot about food, about cooking, about what is good, what is in season and what makes me feel well. I’d love to help you out with meals at your home.

I know what it is to eat out 3 to 4 times a week, throw away groceries you had full intention of preparing, eat the same meals when you do cook and even tire of restaurants. 

I understand that you don’t have time to research new recipes, find new ingredients, plan, shop and cook. Even if you enjoy cooking, it’s nice to have some meals ready to go when you need some extra help.


Why Choose Chef Carlin

In 1998, I left the high stress world of project management without knowing what I was going to do. After some thought and research I started Chef Carlin Personal Chef Service. 

I am a Certified Personal Chef and a member of The International Association of Culinary Professionals.

In June 2010, I attended the kick-off for Chefs Move to Schools at The White House. In August 2010, I started an afterschool cooking club at Autrey Mill Middle School. I was recognized by The White House as a Champion of Change in April 2011 and participated in a round table discussion with Sam Kass, several other chefs and a representative from the USDA.


Food safety is very important to me and I am certified in food safety through the ServSafe program. I teach Food Safety Basics and Norovirus for The Institute of Child Nutrition

I love giving people the tools to feed themselves delicious, healthy meals and have been teaching cooking classes since 1999. I’ve taught at Cook’s Warehouse, libraries throughout Georgia, homes, schools, libraries and conference rooms. 

Since 2006, I have been a product specialist for KitchenAid and enjoy demonstrating all of the wonderful KitchenAid countertop products. 

I worked with Cyndie Story from 2012 to 2017 to teach food service workers how to work within the school regulations and make tasty, healthy food for school lunches. 

In 2014 I attended training to become a consultant with The Institute of Child Nutrition.  In addition to Food Safety Basics and Norovirus, I am certified to teach Practical Skills for Quality Meals, Healthy Cuisine for Kids and Chefs Move to Schools. 

Now that you know all about me, I’d love the opportunity to cook, teach, demonstrate and learn about you and your group. I’m also happy to answer any other questions you might have.
