A common question that comes up when meeting new people is “So do you like to cook?”. My answer has always been “Do ramen noodles count?” followed by a look of horror.
I have never considered myself a cook – I identify as a professional online chef (if a restaurant has an online ordering system there is a very high chance I have used it…more than once!).

Little ol’ me an actual cook?
So I begin to think , what exactly makes someone a cook?
- Enjoying cooking?
- How often you cook?
- Who you cook for?
- How complicated the food you cook is?
- If you follow a recipe or eyeball everything?
