a good cook


Explanation:
just guess from the following explanation I found to the expression:
صحيح الشيخ ابويوسف الشرقي اقتربت للمعنى

النَفس في الطبخ

هي اتقان مهنة الطبخ في الطعم والنكهه

مثلا
يعني اذا فلانه من الناس تتقن الطبخ يعني لو تعمل اي طبخه لو اول مره تعملها تطلع مضبوطه ولها نكهه خاصه

يختلف عن نكهة طبخ بنات جنسها يعني تتميز عن غيرها بإتقان الطبخ نكهه وطعماً

Asker: I searched on Proz and found the term "cook knack", knack means an acquired or natural skill at doing something.
