This quiz has many questions with multiple-choice answers. Your answers will assess the type of cook you are. My result:

Top Chef

Some people are cooks, but not you. You are a chef. You’re like an artist when it comes to food, crafting portraits of deliciousness to tantalize the senses. You can take the most mundane ingredients and make them shine like the stars. There’s a reason people always want to have dinner at your place, and you’re it.
