+6 The first chef might have preceded the advent of cookery, amirite?

Chef is a professional cook, typically the head of a kitchen. Cookery is the art or practice of cooking. Hard to be a professional at something that doesn't exist, but I guess you are just playing a chicken or egg game here.

The first chef was probably a bolt of lightning.

Define chef in this context? Is it the first person to ever cook food? The first person to prepare uncooked food? The first person with the title of chef?

Not likely, given that chef is a position as the head cook of a restaurant.
