What's the difference between a cook and chef?


What do you think defines a cook? I was just randomly thinking of this today and wondered what everyone's thoughts were. For a chef, most people, I think, come to the consensus that you are a chef when you have a culinary education or you were trained under another chef. I totally could be wrong and that's why I'm opening up this discussion because I would like to learn more. Some people say chefs don't call themselves chefs but other people do.


Also, what do you think is the difference between calling yourself a cook and a chef? I feel like most of you who watch my videos are foodies and that's why I wanted to ask these questions to get your input. So let me know in the comments below.
