    Of course there is! In the fancy pants hotel biz they are called production cooks/chefs. They make the 50 gallon batches of stuff (like stocks) that are eventually divided up to make other things. In restaurants you have AM cooks who basically make the large batches of stuff that the PM cooks take credit for ha!
