The word “chef” comes from the French phrase “chef de cuisine,” the chief or head of the kitchen. A head chef is in charge of everything to do with the kitchen and meals—menu planning, food purchasing, meal preparation, and cleanup.
“And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents. And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob. And Jacob sod pottage,” —Genesis 25:27-29.
“Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison; and make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die,” —Genesis 27:3-4. Isaac is speaking to Esau here. He wants Esau to go hunt a deer and cook him some “savoury” (pleasing to the taste) meat. We can see from the verses above that both men knew how to cook, and it appears that each knew how to cook well. Isaac loved Esau’s cooking, and Esau gave up his birthright for some of Jacob’s cooking. Men knew then, and have known throughout the centuries since, how to prepare that which is savory.
