The chef is that professional figure of the restaurant responsible for the kitchen, the creation of the menu, the recipes and the entire supervision of their realization. It is one of the oldest trades, still in continuous evolution and transformation.
International statistics tell us that the cook and his collaborators are in the top ten of the most requested trades.
In short, a profession that knows no crisis. The numerous job vacancies and television programmes which are increasingly devoting space to this professional figure have given rise to the emergence of a new ruling class.
