am i a cook or chef?

if you are able to read my grammatically incorrect words without being offended, noice.

i have cooked food all of my life.  but have only become a chef in the last three years.  it looks like cook is a verb and chef is a noun.  cooking involves the process of coaxing flavors from ingredients with heat, salt, and flavorings.  cheffing involves the process of coaxing the talent of those young people who have decided to care enough to listen. 

gastronomy is the art and science of cooking and drinking. art being interpretation and science being constants. 

so moving forward, i am cooking food as a chef.  everyday i learn something new.  i am not sure what all of it will lead to, it is fun in the present. 

just try to grow some food, and eat it.

cook soon!
