PostHeaderIcon To Be or Not to Be A Chef or a Cook? What’s the difference?

The distinction of Chef vs. Cook probably got its real start back in the Middle Ages, when guilds of chefs were formed in France, each with different focuses. Eventually, these roles evolved into a proper way to set up a commercial kitchen in France, and many professional kitchens employ at least some of these roles today. You have the Executive Chef, who does menu planning, purchasing, quality control, and a lot of the business work. Saucier makes the sauces, Pastry Chef makes the breads and desserts, and so on all of these derived from the various guilds from France in the Middle Ages.  A chef is someone who is, or at one point was, paid to make food. If you’ve never cooked food as a career, it’s going to be difficult to convince people who really care about the difference to call you a chef.

What Folks are Saying!

Local Roots Food Tour has been the only food tour I have ever been on, and it was an incredible experience, I will definitely be doing it again! I went with my girlfriend for her birthday and had the most amazing time. We went to 4 different restaurants and 2 pastry shops and left full and thrilled! Not only is the food amazing but our tour guide (Bethany) really made the day so much better, after we would visit a local eatery we would walk to the next one and on the way we would stop and she would tell us about the local history about Sacramento that was really interesting! And Im not much for history at all, but it also gave us time to get hungry for the next stop and get in some exercise to burn off some calories. My girlfriend and I went on the City of the Trees tour and Bethany told us that they are making a new tour with all new restaurants and I know we will be going on that one too. At the end of the tour they give you great coupons to the restaurants you just visited as well as more! You should definitely take this tour!!!
