Foodista Ranking & Badges Update

Foodista Ranking Update:

I'm now a SOUS-CHEF
The Sous-Chef de Cuisine (under-chef of the kitchen) is the second in command and direct assistant of the Executive Chef. This person may be responsible for scheduling and substituting when the Executive Chef is off-duty and will also fill in for or assist the Chef de Partie (line cook) when needed. Smaller operations may  not have a sous-chef, but larger operations may have several.

As a fun way of recognizing people who contribute recipes and edit pages on Foodista, we have created a Virtual Kitchen Hierarchy. Based on a modified version of Escoffier's "Kitchen Brigade" system, these are the levels and how they are attained:

Position Percentile of Editors Icon
Executive Chef 1%
Chef de Cuisine 5%
Sous Chef 25%
Line Cook 33%
Fry Cook 50%
Prep Cook 90%
Dishwasher Exactly 1 Edit
Patron No Edits

The more you contribute the higher you go! But like in a real kitchen, you are in competition with other users, so you'll need to work hard to get and stay ahead. Your position will be re-calculated once per day.

Here are my badges!!! Cool!
