My wife, Carla is the better cook in our family, but I like to think I am no slouch in this area.
Carla has a gift for finding things that are both very healthy and quite delicious, and that is hard to do. On the other hand, I have a knack for making food that is delicious enough, but you may want to have a heart defribillator on standby before you eat it.
I think I like to cook because I grew up in Louisiana, where men, especially southern Louisiana men, are expected to do a good quality job of preparing meals. I only found out later in my life that men from other states didn’t do as much cooking as we did, when a cajun friend half-jokingly told me he was in college before he found out men weren’t supposed to cook!
