戝悀


Explanation:
Absolutely agree 悀师 is exact Chinese translation for 'chef'.

But if your Dad happens to be a "chief chef", use 戝悀 or 庡悀, whose hat is higher than regular chef. :)

Browser > Encoding > GB2312, to see above Simplified Chinese characters properly.

男厨师长 or 厨师


Explanation:

Chef 来自法文,原意为“男厨师长”,也用来泛指一般的专业厨师。
这里的例句是讲父亲的职业,译为“厨师”比较稳妥。

“我爸是厨师。”

紁


Explanation:
If you also believe "chef" is not the same as"cook", then I think "紁" is the most precise and apropriate one. In a restauranst, there could be lots of cooks assisting a chef.
