Chef is a high falutin' name to make 'em feel more important than they are. Sure they feed the crew but that's their job...and that's all they do...cook!
Sorry, fail to see your point. Cooks/chefs whichever way you want to split that make sure all on board are fed and watered properly, help create the banyans, food for flight deck barbies, fresh breads/cakes, ice creams - all the things that help make routine and long deployments that little bit more bearable.
