WHAT IS A CHEF? The common public belief is that anyone who cooks food as a job is a chef. However a genuine professional chef is much more than wearing a crisp white coat,  and only preparing food. Furthermore, unfortunately the title Chef, Professional Chef, Certified Chef, Master Chef, Executive Chef, Chef de cuisine, and other job descriptions have different ambiguous meanings that  depend upon various perceptions.  The TechnicalChef logo is the Australian Commercial Cookery Industry validation  that shows the title holder is also a licensed professional commercial chef who has met minimum  professional industrial standards in  commercial cookery  training and commercial kitchen experience; and aware of their ethical obligations in practice.
