Re: 'Highest'?

Some of the best chefs as well. It is a matter of application perhaps and studying and practicing/reading up or seeing clearly. The need and want has to be there. Interesting comparison :) Is AD about safety or pleasure? Most cooks can do so with poisoning anyone, but top cheffing (sp? :) ) is, I g...

Re: 'Highest'?

It is a bit of a daft statement- how do you quantify it - is highest determined by a given course or number of certificates you have amassed or your demonstrable skill?
