After reading several post about how crap it is to be a chef. I thought I’d share my views on the great things about being a chef. Feel free to add more positives in the comments below.
 
Great things about being a chef.

  1. Chefs are sexy as hell. Nothing more attractive than someone who is confident in the kitchen.
  2. They know how to chill. Days off are days off.  They deserve their down time.
  3. Chefs are easy to feed. We always appreciate when someone else cooks for us
  4. Chefs have a very basic and low level sense of humour. Just saying “boobs” is hilarious
  5. A chef can make a meal out of pretty much anything
  6. Chefs know a little bit about everything. From quantum physics to celebrity gossip.
  7. A good chef will never be unemployed. Unless they want to be.
  8. Chefs can do the washing up faster than your mother
  9. Chefs can out drink most humans... and still turn up for work the next day.
  10. Chefs don’t get phased by general life stresses. A chef will just get on with it.
  11. You’ll know if a chef doesn’t like you. They’ll either tell you to your face or you’ll just get that vibe.
  12. Chefs love to be told what they should put on their menu. Lol. No they really don’t.
  13. Marco Pierre White is a god among us
  14. Keith Floyd was a bad ass
  15. Chefs are born, not trained
  16. What happens in the kitchen, stays in the kitchen. After all the rage and swearing during service, we all share a beer after
  17. There is no sexism in the kitchen. A chef is a chef. Boobs or balls? You get the job done with respect and banter
  18. Kitchen jokes will never be understood by the general public. It’s very non PC. There is a line but it’s covered with vegetable peelings
  19. A chef can prepare a family Christmas meal (if not working) in just a few hours. Not the all-day event you endured as a child.
  20. A chef can see through bullshit, walls and around corners. They know what’s going on everywhere
  21. A chef can identify an item by how it smells as it starts to burn. Plastic, wooden spoon or pine nuts. I’m sure that’s a skill J
  22. Chefs are loyal friends
  23. Chefs are almost unrecognisable when not in chef whites
  24. A chefs significant other will be way more attractive than expected. They always punch above their weight in the looks department. (See point 1)
  25. Chefs know when to shut the **** up!
