About Chef Brendan

Hello and welcome to my website.

I have been a chef, caterer and restauranter for 40+ years.

When COVID-19 hit, I, like many chefs, lost my job.

So, I decided to focus on this web app idea to simplify a chef’s job.

How could I make a chef’s job easier?

I started working with WordPress website design in 2016 with a food blog in mind and a recipe app idea

that I had no idea how to make.

How would I help chefs like

myself plan and cost recipes for functions and create daily special ideas.

I studied catering management many years ago when computers were

basically glorified printers. Plus, I had never used a computer much before 2016. What had changed?

So, the seeds were planted, and ideas started coming together as I acquired new skills.

How would I pay for this?

Then that idea evolved to add downloadable promotional products, videos and visual graphics for other foodies,

chefs and restaurateurs to use on their social media and website and to help staff sell the menu items.

That would help them promote the dishes and increase sales while reducing food waste and time.

As I have learned, planning and costing recipe ideas takes time many chefs do not have.

Also, the kitchen lighting is not good for food photography, and the heat and grime kill cameras.

Plus this would be a good way to financially support

all the work, time, and cost it takes to bring this web app to life without relying on ad revenue

which downgrades this website user experience.

Now that I am retired, I plan on trying to focus and deliver that.

You can subscribe or follow this website below to see how it works

out or pop a comment on Facebook or Youtube, I would love some feedback.
