To what degree is this a problem if: 1) your level of kashrut is the same as this person who's cooking and 2) They do not cook on Shabbat?

Edit: To clarify, this didn't seem like a problem to me until someone told me it's not allowed. Now I'm looking for sources on that.

  • If they do not cook on Shabbat then what's the connection to your eating it on Shabbat?

  • I have no clue. That's why I'm looking for a source.

    I'm still not sure I'm getting your case exactly, but maybe the concern is someone who doesn't keep Shabbos is in some ways like a gentile so maybe bishul akum applies to all their cooking?

  • In that case, would turning on the oven or stove for them be good enough?

  • If the person who cooked it is Jewish, I believe that you may never eat that food.
