Recently I ran across a website run by a guy in Australia called Liveeatandlisten.tv He calls himself the singing CHEF. I inquired of him where he went to culinary school as I saw no mention of any schooling in his Bio. He replied acting rather defensive saying that " it doesn't matter what you call yourself". I told him that "chef" is an earned title and that you just can't call yourself a chef anymore than you can just call yourself a Dr., or a lawyer, or a priest, or a pilot. I explained to him that chefs are trained individuals that spent time and money learning a specific craft and it was offensive that he would just call himself a chef without having earned the title. Maybe if he heard from more professional people in the industry than just me, he might change his thinking.Especially any Australian Chefs. This guy is a imposter.
