Although I donât deny some RLC egg beaters do produce some excellent grub, I've always wondered why we refer to them all as Chefs - it's not a rank or a position and in my view, a Chef is someone who creates meals and menus who also runs the kitchen with a rod of iron i.e.: Gordon Ramsey, Jamie Oliver so forth. They are referred to as Chef as is his/her position and also as a term of respect by all. Those who manufacture and produce their ideas are underneath him and are referred to as Cooks and Kitchen Hands. You donât have a kitchen full of Chefs do you. So in the Army why do we refer to all burger flippers as Chefs? Please someone enlighten me.
