The recipe book user and the chef
Chef vs recipe book user
Recipe book users follow guides and are assessed on whether they can reproduce the recipe. Chefs understand the theory of food and taste.
Chefs have a mix of practical and theoretical wisdom and willingness to engage conceptually and theoretically with real-world problems. As a result, they can adapt to the present and evolving future, they are not constrained by best practice, they are liberated by true knowledge.
Chefs can achieve a huge amount without a recipe.
We need more Chefs.
