Usage

var gulp = require('gulp');
var chef = require('gulp-chef');
var browserSync = require('browser-sync');
 
var meals = chef({
    src: 'app/',
    dest: 'dist/',
    markups: {
        src: '**/*.html',
        recipe: 'copy'
    },
    styles: {
        src: '**/*.less',
        plugin: 'gulp-less',
        spit: true
    },
    browserSync: {
        plugin: 'browser-sync',
        options: {
            server: '{{dest.path}}'
        }
    },
    watch: ['markups', 'styles'],
    build: { parallel: ['markups', 'styles'] },
    serve: ['build', 'browserSync', 'watch']
});
 
gulp.registry(meals);

This roughly do the same thing as the following normal gulp construct:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var less = require('gulp-less');
var sync = require('browser-sync');
 
var config = {
    dest: 'dist/',
    markups: 'app/**/*.html',
    styles: 'app/**/*.less'
};
 
function markups() {
    return gulp.src(config.markups)
        .pipe(gulp.dest(config.dest));
}
 
function styles() {
    return gulp.src(config.styles)
        .pipe(less())
        .pipe(gulp.dest(config.dest));
}
 
function browserSync() {
    sync({
        server: config.dest
    });
}
 
function watch() {
    gulp.watch(config.markups, markups)
        .on('change', sync.reload);
    gulp.watch(config.styles, styles)
        .on('change', sync.reload);
}
 
gulp.task(markups);
gulp.task(styles);
gulp.task(watch);
gulp.task('build', gulp.parallel(markups, styles));
gulp.task('serve', gulp.series('build', browserSync, watch));
