In its own way its a perjoritive statement, an example of a sterotyping and elitist thinking and insight into your character. I will be sure I forward to a few of my chef friends on the forum. one who is opne of my best friends T37chef as maybe they would care to know they are considered less than engineers. How sad a statement.
Oh for god's effing sake, grow a pair, Chef!
He was referring to his own understanding of "structural and design issues" and that as an engineer probably knew more than a chef ABOUT said issues. He NEVER said chefs were lesser than engineers, merely that they were more knowledgeable about structure and design.
If you want something to confuse you, one of my most esteemed colleagues is both trained as a chef and an engineer, and killer at both.. but I would never say he was smarter than the both of you. In part because I know nothing more than your statements and what information you have provided on Sailnet.
