No. I fucking hate Food Network for exactly this reason >Okay chefs! (none of them has ever even worked in a restaurant) >Junior edition of whatever stupid shit is on: "Alright junior chefs!"
It's like nobody ever fucking told them the difference between cook and chef. Some dumbass 14 year old kid or a stupid bitch who has never cooked outside of her own kitchen has never ran a section of a professional kitchen
That's like calling the mayor president because LOL SAME THING RITE
I'm a sous, and it made me uncomfortable for a long time. Also I would tell people I "work in kitchens" So I didn't have to explain what a sous was. Now I just tell people im a chef. Its more to the point and easier to explain that yes I'm a chef, just not the executive chef.
No, I haven't earned that title yet My dad was a chef for seventeen years, so I have a high opinion of the position and the work that goes into earning and maintaining it I hate when friends/family say I'm a chef even though I'm just a line cook, it's cringy
When I used to work as a line cook we used to call the chef "chef" during cooking hours and give the "yes chef" when he'd ask for something. After the restuarant was closed and we were just cooking we'd call him by his name though. He never told me to call him that but the sous and the other cooks would just always call him chef so that's what I did when I started and just followed it. Plus his name was 3 syllables and chef is 1 so it was faster to say in a rush.
I cook at home and cook dinner parties for friends. I like to have them call me chef because I'm the boss in the kitchen. All you professional kitchen rats are just jealous because you work like bitches in 120 degree heat for 16 hours a day and only the head honcho gets to be called chef but you still support the system ignoring that like in the army you're just lowly grunts who'll be burned out completely in a couple of years time and you'll have nothing to show for it whereas I'm already rich because I have a normal job and can pretend to be Eric Ripert in my ample leisure time.
>>7038165 >I'm a stupid faggot agreed Comparing it to the army is quite fair though. In a traditionally run kitchen you are a complete slave to the whims of your chef. Grats on your better job desu. I'm am adrenaline junkie and find normal people jobs too boring.

I avoided this thread because I thought I wouldn't like the replies. Thanks for proving me wrong, /ck/.
I love the nicknames, but the "chef" shit can go fuck itself. The one kitchen I worked in where I was told to call the leader "chef" was one of the most ... contrived kitchens that I've ever worked in. Fucking ego-stroking bullshit title for narcissist hacks. Just because I installed my new toilet doesn't men that I call myself "Plumber Anon".
>>7033766 I have asked my employees not to... some come from restaurants where it was beaten into them relentlessly. I didn't go to school for this, and I have no real professional designation (manager? executive cook? Vice president? Most of what I do is book-keeping, with the occasional check/sub, and the rare shift on the line/in prep when it's understaffed). It's either boss, my name, or sir if they're in trouble.
