I consider someone who has run a successful kitchen, did
the menu planning, created dishes, has classical training and
apprenticed under a proper chef could be called "chef". But
now it appears that so many people who may have a cooking
degree or been a cook uses the title, especially when hosting
a television show or writing a cookbook.
Much as I like people like Tyler Florence, Jaime Oliver, Guy Fieri
and Andrew Zimmer I consider their use of the term "chef" to be
Bourdain, Batalli, Gordon Ramsay, John Besh, etc....are chefs
in the true sense of the word.

According to the article you can get one of the five star ratings
he claims through the mail.

People keep telling me I should go to "Chef's School" but I'm too
damned old for the type of work that would involve. But I would 
like to someday have a job in the food industry at some level.
Been a cook, pastry chef, host, caterer, Archimagris but
never a Chef.
