I may be a great cook (and that depends on who you talk to
) , but am chef only of my own kitchen. A chef, by definition, is a supervisor in some capacity of other cooks. The word strictly translated means chief. So a professional chef is chif of his/her kitchen, or chief cook. I am not that, except as I say, in my kitchen, or when I'm catering something for a friend, and then only on a temporary basis.
But I do have to admit, I love to cook, and can pretty much improvise a pretty great meal on very short notice, and with whatever is on hand at the time. That comes from lots of practice in such things.
