If you're looking for something to do then pop on your chef hat because it's International Chefs Day!  Or just give a chef a giant hug if you can't cook!  Let's get right into celebrating International Chefs Day!


Well, this holiday was actually set up in 2004 by the World Association of Chef Societies to shed a little light on the profession and for chefs to work their magic in the kitchen. These people put in a lot of work every single day and make some really creative dishes for us to munch on. Yeah, chefs are a bit more than just cooks with funny hats; they're highly skilled and they deserve their own special day!  The word chef comes from the French phrase chef de cuisine which means the head of the kitchen. So that would pretty much mean you run the place, but there are different kinds of chefs. For instance, there is a sous-chef who is pretty much second in command and there is a chef de partie which would be a line cook; someone who is in charge of a specific area in the kitchen.

But we're not done yet! There are even some chefs that specialize in very specific areas when it comes to cooking. Like, some chefs are highly skilled in sautéing, roasting, grilling, frying. And some are only asked to cook specific things like fish, vegetables or pastries. So you might come across a fry chef or a pastry chef, you never know! It's sometimes better to focus on one area and perfect it, instead of spreading yourself thin.  What kind of chef would you be?


So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, I know a lot of you like taking the easy way out so why don't you see if you can get some reservations for tonight at a fancy restaurant? See what kind of kitchen magic some local chefs are whipping up every night and let it pass over your taste buds. And then of course you can give your compliments to the chef. Who knows, he (or she) might even come out to your table to be sure you're enjoying your meal!  But some of you might actually have a little chef magic hidden inside you, so break out your skills today! Whip up something really fancy and surprise your lover, roommates or family. And maybe they will surprise you by doing the dishes! But, if you're not the household chef then you know what do to... Yep; you're on clean up duty! It's only fair... it's the chef's special day!

And you know, you could always sign up for some cooking classes today. See what it's like to really know all the ins and outs of the special culinary techniques. It might not be as scary and difficult as you once thought and you may end up with some lifelong skills! And yes, you might even get to wear one of those silly hats. ;)  Have a great day and enjoy the food!
