Today I am here with a very interesting topic for you all—
“who is a better cook- a chef or a mom”
Now what you will say?
Well let me guess your answer….
If you are a teenager then your answer will be surely chefs and if you are a man or woman struggling for life every day will have the answer- my mom is the best.
According to me, every mom is a chef and most of the successful chefs are encouraged by their moms to be chef.
So, moms are everywhere. You cannot just put her out of kitchen and think of foods.
Now let me come to my question- who is the best cook?
Very frankly there is no answer to this question as being a best cook depends on the person who is eating the dish made by the cook. Now there is difference between the two person- mom and chefs.
Mom’s main motive while cooking
When a mom enters the kitchen every morning, she keeps one thing in mind. I have to cook something healthy for my family for the entire day. The next thing which she focuses on is the taste which her family members like. Her husband may be loving something spicy while her children may be loving something sweet. So, she cooks for everyone as per their taste. What she keeps in mind about cooking is the health of her family. Choosing the healthy options in your diet is only possible by your mom. Even moms have their own way to make food tastier. With the age yoru taste may change, and she is so versatile and she also changes her cooking process with your needs and taste buds. Every roti she makes has butter as per your health needs. The plate which is served to your by yoru mom may not be well decorated, but it is full of nutrients, tastes and goodness.
Chef’s target is to cook good food
Next option is the chef. They just give you the perfect taste of every food. When they cook chicken, it is perfectly soft and tender with all its juiciness rightly blended with the sauce and curry. That is why they are chef. When they enter the kitchen, they have only one thing in mind, they have to cook perfectly for the visitors at their restaurants or hotels. Any mistake in their dish will cost them and so they have to be cautious about everything- taste of the food, quality of material, presentation. They are in kitchen to impress the foodies who want to taste signature dishes of the chef.
So, the aim of cooking of both of these persons are completely different. A chef loves to cook but professionally. Whereas a mom loves to cook for her family without any interest of getting paid.
Hope, you all will agree with me.
Now let me explain the answer that I have assumed you may have given to me.
Why teenagers would love the chefs- nothing but the age is so that they love the food of hotels and restaurants rather than the home-made food. They love the foods which are cooked differently than the foods made at home.
Where as a man or a woman who is struggling for life everyday knows the importance of healthy food and good health. They know getting the home-made tasty food at the day’s end is so satisfying. Also, homemade foods are the best options which is hot and delicious. Even most of the chefs I know love to come back at home and have their mom-made foods. That is a greater satisfaction.
Exceptions are always there and would be. So, I am not talking about exception. A teenager can also answer me the opposite one and vice versa.
If you agree with me and finds this your mind speaks, let me know your favourite dish of your mom. And if you love chef foods, also comment to me why you like chef’s food. I am a mom and a chef. I am a chef in my family. So what are you? Let me know in the comment section.
