Professionals or Home-Chefs?
 
Well, maybe I didn't word the title correctly, but are the people here actual chefs that work in a restaurant/catering service/etc. or just cook at home for family and friends? I was just wondering, and please respond! :chef:

I am a home chef! I just cook for my family and co-workers. I work in a lawfirm so when I get home, I destress by cooking dinner. I missed my calling bigtime. I enjoy, no love, cooking.

Family and friends.. it's more than enough for me

According to my business card, I do it for a living.

Home chef, camp chef on fishing & camping trips, and kitchen cook/chef/dishwasher/volunteer at church. Trying to get the family to refer to me as "Chef" when I'm in the kitchen, but they all just roll their eyes when I suggest it. No respect...https://www.discusscooking.com/attach...5cbb34437f.gifhttps://www.discusscooking.com/attach...72c399152f.gif

I don't consider myself a chef. I'm a cook. I can throw together stuff and make it edible but I am not that creative to think I'm a chef. I can follow a recipe and I can modify a recipe but I can't come up with new dishes on my own.

He is definitely a great chef!!!

As for me, when the voice on the loud-speaker asks, "Do you want fries with that," I just say, "Yes!" LOL No, I am a home chef. I was really sick for a month, and then we were on vacation for over a month, so I kind of got away from it for awhile, but I am happily getting back into swing of things in the kitchen.

For a little over 30 years now I have cooked professionally for money.

I work at burger king, so I am 100% pro chef :chef:

I'm a Home Cook, I have to do the dishes too!

LPBeier 10-29-2008 07:55 PM

I am trained and certified as a chef. However, I really don't like that term. I love to cook, whether I get paid for it or am doing it for friends and family. Food is number one a passion and I will continue creating until it no longer is one...but I don't see that happening any day soon.
