A chef is not only someone that likes to cook but a chef is also someone that loves food as well as anything and everything food related. This is a profession that has received much long overdue attention in the media over the last decade, as many new and hilarious celebrity chefs are becoming frequent faces on our TV sets. Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsey and Booby Flay have all become household names that are imitated and admired all over the world.
A chef is a professional cook that is trained in every station of the kitchen and he is the chief, the big boss and the one that runs the kitchen. A chef has spent years getting to where he/she is now and he/she knows how to grill the perfect steak, mash the most delicious potatoes and how to whip up the most exotic of salads.
A chef is the head of his/her kitchen and his/her day is full from its beginning to its end. A chef must manage all of the kitchen staff, which includes everything from hiring, firing and even watching over everything that is cooked in his/her kitchen. A chef makes the menus, stocks all the food needed by the kitchen to cook the meals, ensures quality control and that the best health practices are being upheld by his/her staff.
