    The phrase Chef became popular in the 19th century. Before then, they were referred to as cooks. Being a Chef/cook was considered a professional position. Women were not permitted to hold professional positions during that time.

    In our house, I don't think DH knows where the kitchen is!

    A fine outlook, indeed. Mrs. Beachy is a great cook but she has done that long enough. Now that we are empty nesters, I like to think of a "kitchen" as being that room in the back of the restaurant.

    @Witzer - remember me mentioning Kay's Restaurant at the Cambridge Airport? Well, I finally made it there by plane (to meet up with a group of pilots from another forum). It really is a great little place to dine. So, next time you head to Cambridge...
