From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a person employed to perform culinary service. In early times
    among the Hebrews cooking was performed by the mistress of the
    household (Gen. 18:2-6; Judg. 6:19), and the process was very
    expeditiously performed (Gen. 27:3, 4, 9, 10). Professional
    cooks were afterwards employed (1 Sam. 8:13; 9:23). Few animals,
    as a rule, were slaughtered (other than sacrifices), except for
    purposes of hospitality (Gen. 18:7; Luke 15:23). The paschal
    lamb was roasted over a fire (Ex. 12:8, 9; 2Chr. 35:13). Cooking
    by boiling was the usual method adopted (Lev. 8:31; Ex. 16:23).
    No cooking took place on the Sabbath day (Ex. 35:3).
