When Does a “Normal” Become a Chef?

At Sorted, a “normal” is anyone who isn’t a trained chef. But after 10 years of cooking alongside Ebbers and James, how have things changed for our normals? That’s what we’re wondering in today’s episode! What skills do you need to be a chef? What have the steak man, the out-of-the-box man and the Huttlestorm learned? Have the chefs learned anything from the normals?! And how has the Sorted community helped us on our journey? Tune in to find out all this – and hear how Mike and Barry rate themselves as chefs! Do you agree with them? How would you rate them? How would you rate yourselves? Comment and let us know!
