Top 5 Reasons Why Real Men Love Cooking

1

There are so many different cultures, backgrounds, races, religions, cast and creed on this planet, it's to be expected that opinions would be wide and varied. Peculiarly, cooking seems to transcend this, and all over the world, preparing and cooking food seems to have been designated 'a woman's job'. It's utter nonsense, of course.

Let's take a look at the evidence....No matter where you go in the world, if you look at the professional level of cooking in restaurants, you'll find a world dominated by men, with a few exceptions here and there. These guys are proud of their extensive skills in the kitchen, and very few women can match these skills.

Also, a much 'closer to home' piece of evidence is found whenever the sun comes out and someone decides to put the grill on. Just watch the man of the house immediately puff his chest out, arm himself with the a pair of tongs and start barbecuing meat and veg like there's no tomorrow. Even more interesting is watching how the other males react, congregating around the grill and offering various pearls of wisdom on how to get the temperature right, what flavorings to add on different meats etc.

Yes, men of the world need to wake up and realize that cooking truly is a man's thing. So, to celebrate International Women's Day in March, which is all about breaking down gender barriers and stereotypes, we've decided to create a list of the Top 5 Reasons Why Real Men Love Cooking.

If a man you know is not convinced, just leave your laptop or phone screen unlocked with this article on show – he'll get your point!
1) Cooking makes you look hot, WHATEVER you actually look like

You could be one of these guys who have serious 'game', or you have millions in the bank and you happily flaunt it. In that case, perhaps you don't need any help at all in attracting women (although, having said that, you should possibly consider what type of women you are attracting.....bimbos and gold diggers come to mind.....). But if you are an average guy, then there is seriously nothing that can make you instantly hot as much as being able to cook. You could take dance lessons, or you could hit the gym like your life depends on it. But ask most women, and they'll tell that even the smoothest of movers do not compare to a guy who can make a mouthwatering meal. A six pack to bounce quarters off? We'd rather you kept your shirt on and opened that bottle of red while we watch you master the kitchen!

2) You'll have loads of money!
Having even just a basic repertoire of recipes means you end up saving a tonne of cash.

Eating out and getting takeaways cost money. Yes, it's difficult to envisage how foregoing your $10 takeaway is going to make you rich. But add up all your takeaways and meals out over a year, and you'll be surprised at how much money you are spending right now on just feeding yourself. You could be paying a third or even less. Think of what you could be doing with that money. No cash to buy that latest gadget you've got your eye on? Don't think you can afford a season ticket to see your favorite baseball team? Yes you can!

3) Cheap dates

Whether you're going on a first date, or you're celebrating your 30th wedding anniversary, you know that women like to be wined and dined. But did you know, the vast majority of women perceive a man who takes the time to cook for them as much more romantic than a guy who splashes the cash in some fancy restaurant. So, never mind that you're saving bundle of cash, especially when you add in the costs of marked up bottles of wine in restaurants, you're gesture is going to make a much bigger impact when you just cook for her. You'll get a smile........and probably a whole lot more....

4) Keep that 6 pack

You work hard at that gym. Do you really want to undo all that work by getting that takeaway curry laden with corn syrup and additives? Intelligent men know that, when you eat homemade food, you can delete that calorie counter app from your phone, and you don't need to work out anywhere near as hard. Home cooked food also tastes a lot better than those powdery protein shakes and bars. Besides, do you really think it's attractive to see men chewing on supplements?

5) Cooking is manly!
Men pride themselves at being self-sufficient and independent (and women get turned on by this!) You can repair your car, you can build a camp fire, you can even hunt animals..............wait, you can't feed yourself? Complete man-fail!
Are you a man who loves cooking? Tell us why, we'd love to hear from you!

My husband cooks whenever he gets the chance and honestly I wish he did it more! Not only because of the reasons you mentioned above, but it’s nice to share those moments in the kitchen together. Also, he is better at it and more creative than I am ;)

Knife is very sharp. Wish it came with a sheath though. Handle is very long. This is our 3rd purchase from Chef Remi. We will be purchasing many more products from Chef Remi.

Rachel Foutch said: Perfect whisks for any kitchen!

These whisks work to do an amazing job in the kitchen. I love all of Chef Remi's products, these whisks in particular are my favorite Chef Remi tools though. I whisk often when cooking, and they both did the job perfectly, they cleaned up easily, and even better they don't trap liquid inside of them like many others do. I have often been whisking dry ingredients with other brands of whisk and found them to start suddenly dripping some water out...this is not ideal of course when doing something that requires precision and also who knows how long that liquid has been there or that it's only water! I love my Chef Remi whisk and will never use another brand for this ever again. These cleaned up so easily with the silicone that everything just wiped and washed right off!

Eva Connover said: Must have spatulas

Super satisfied with this spatula set, each one is different shape and the material is not stiff but not too soft. The handle is sturdy and very comfortable to the hand. 100% recommended and the price cant be beat!!!
