I haven't posted in very long time but I thought of this group while participating in hot debate among my colleagues in the personal chef industry on our own version of these message boards. We have been arguing with each other over the fact that the although the word "cheffing" is technically not a word it has become part of our language somehow. Anyway, some of my colleagues think the use of the term borders on a mortal sin -- others think it's no big deal. So, would you look down on "us" if you heard us using that word in conversation or not give it a second thought. I really don't want to get into the debate of whether or not personal chefs should be called chefs in the first place -- that's a whole other subject. But, for example, I'm sure I've heard someone say "I sous cheffed (also not a word) at that restaurant for 2 years", or something similar. Personally I think the whole subject is ridiculous but I'm curious to see what you all think.
