'Women can't cook' ???













I weigh a healthy 75 kg, so really can't say anything wrong about my mom or my wife's cooking. just a precaution in case they read my blog :)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4370934.stm

Recently we got some women chef's /cooks at our site. There were great expectations of the homely and tasty food we were going to get in the future. The first few days there were a few tasty dishes... but then as the days passed by and the crowd increased (about 100 people) the food seem to go back to a routine taste of the same masala powder, spices...

Atleast with the male cooks we could demand, curse them... (i would not do it in a restaurant... as i have heard stories of what they do to the food they serve to you) and get some changes. Well looks like we are doomed unless we have to inspire these women to cook something interesting, delecious ....(pazhai ponna nakku...) any ideas ???

After i read that article.... i feel that women can cook at home for their loved ones all those delecious stuff, but as chef's can they equal their male counterparts.

i have tried cooking at home... and my dog seems to be getting healthy while my family want to go on fasting during those days, a coincidence. well i am learning to cook ...

smiley, i just thought it was an interesting subject :) (the friday the 13th)

And i think men like the challenge of cooking for many.. while women look for something personal and pleasant in it...

Cooking doesn't need to be a specialist. Just the aroma which makes tasty.

I think, cooking was forced to womanhood rather than by choice. Woman make food in home becos she is patient enough to spend a hour in kitchen and she dont want her family to sleep with hunger!

And Man thinks cooking is an art, thats why he become a better chef!

It might be that the most important ingredient in women's cooking is love. When they cook for unknown faces they forget this ingredient. But men's cooking dont need this ingredient anyway. The taste is present in the style itself.

Better take your dog to the vet soon!

agreed, men are very good cooks, which is why most of the chef's in hotel are men.

Here are a few other points regarding our body weight Please check here, our weight should be proportionately equaly our height, ur mentioning of 75 kilos might actually be overweight based on your "Body mass Index" - I weigh 72 kilos now and am 5.7 and Im overweight by 2-3 kilos. If your body mass index is between 19 - 24.9 you are ok if you are between 25-29.9 you are overweight.

Men may be cooks or successful chefs at Star hotels and TV shows and maybe at home too sometimes when a need occurs for them to help out.

But, a women's cooking, atleast in moany more cases is always good. A woman not only cooks variety and trie sout new dishes, but also prepares it with specification for each family member and serves it with love and the health of her family in mind.

Smiley, totally agree with Sat. Also I guess irrespective of whether u r male or female...doing the same thing (i mean cooking) can get monotonous & boring. Maybe if ppl take turns, it might be interesting fr the one to cook & surely a better variety for the ppl eating the same! What say?
