Because eating is a universal human drive, cooking is a nearly universal cultural feature. Who's the better chef/cook, men or women?

Well, I couldn't have thought of such a question. lol... too good for question ;) In my opinion, well, women are definitely better cooks. My mom cooks simply delicious, and my nanny is too good too. They both have their own ways and I like them both more than that of any of the restaurants or hotels. SO, even if the cook of those restaurants is male/female, IMO, because of my mom and nanny, better chef is a female...my mom. lol :D Happy Mylotting!

Hi Amagnimo! Thanks! LOL! My mom is also good in cooking. She's resourceful too. However, when it comes to the taste of the food I like more my dad's cooking. maybe my dad is putting all the right and ample ingredients while my mom is being a bit economical when it comes to adding ingredients.

Well, it was pleasure. Actually in my house, I am the best (well, as far as I know - i haven't gone around and tested everybody cooking in a competition with me...lol) male cook, but I cook the worst, so you can just imagine. Here females cook and they cook good that it all makes up that none of males even try in here... lol.

It depends really. Cooking is a skill that is developed. And if you have the heart for it, you'll be a great chef or cook. Incidentally, there are more men who cook than women so they say that men are better cook. Personally, I cook better than my wife. ;)

Hi deltax! Most of the chefs and cooks in star hotels are men...men are really know for superb cooking. However, when men get home...who cooks for us men? They are the women..our wives, our mothers...

Hello ace. It seems that the majority of chefs in big restaurants in China are men rather than women. But usually in a Chinese family, it could be either the men or the women who cook. So whom do you think is a better chef such being the case, please? Thank you for your discussion, friend.

For me, I think men is better in cooking because my hubby cooks much much more better than me. He is a chef and my family members like his cooking more than mine.

My gf cooks that well but to expensive her ingredients hahaha so she seldom really cook but if she cook well I'll tell you it's the best I've ever taste in my whole life. She was telling me that it's her first time that he saw a guy cooking that well and that is me hmmmmmmm. She likes my tinola fish. And she was telling me it's my first time tasted really tinolang fish in her entire life. I think it's both. I think cooking is a talent hahaha! Do you cook? What is your specialty? wanna tell me? Have a nice day!

Hello,Evann! So far cooking is concerned it is the monopoly of women.They cook well at home so dearly that even if it does not look so attractive,it tastes nice.But when comes the commercial cooking it is the men who cook well and present the dish nicely.But in this dish you will not find the nutritional values.In that sense the best cook award would go to the women.thanx.

Both can cook very well. I can eat from any one of them. Just as long as the food is properly cooked. And hands are washed cleanly..
