Hey, what’s cooking? Spaghetti bolognese.
Oh, it smells delicious. Who’s the cook in your household?
The cook is the person who does the cooking. Don’t confuse them with the cooker.
That’s the large piece of equipment or stove that you use to cook the food.
So what’s the difference between a cook and a chef?
Well, they’re the same thing. The people that do the cooking.
A chef is a very skilled cook, often the most senior cook in a restaurant or hotel.
So if you cooked a meal, don’t tell people you’re the cooker.
You’re not a piece of equipment. Tell them you’re the cook.
Mmm, fantastic! Here’s to the chef! It was a pleasure
