making a meal for you love one is one way to show just how much you love your bf/gf r partner. But what if the food that she or he prepare for you taste really really REALLY bad and it is his or her first preparing meal for you. Can you be honest and tell her/ him how it taste like.

I am not a very good cook and my husband would always tell me I can do better next time. He use to give me a lot of criticism about my cooking and that really hurt me because I was trying hard to be a good cook for him and I took all those criticisms constructively and I studied his preferences about how he wants me to cook the food for him. I am not saying that I am better now, I am still trying to improve but good thing i dont hear criticisms from him anymore. And that makes me feel happy looking at him eating the food I cooked like it was the most delicious food he has ever tasted.

If it actually tasted bad I think I would tell them. but I think her cooking is good.

You should tell that person in a nice suggestive way, not in a way that would make them angry at you.

We can do it more constructively,I will tell her the truth,but also give her some advice.I like to cook for my gf,maybe it will taste not so good, but I will improve my cuisine for her ,LOL,,

I would like to put it this way - If I cook and it taste bad, what would I prefer? my partner will tell me the truth or not? I think I rather want my partner to tell me the truth but I hope he'll do it constructively and not with a bad temper. I want to know the truth even if it will hurt me because it is how I would learn. Now for your question - I will tell my partner the truth, but I will do it constructively.

Of course I would be honest and tell him...just like I would (and do) expect the same from not only my husband but my kids as well..If they dont like something I've made new for the first time I expect them to tell me so I dont make it again..I'm the same way with others.

Yes, I tell her. Well, do you know, we are very close now, we are together from more than 4 years, and I think we should each other everything, even the unpleasant things, like that she/I haven't cook well or that she/I doesn't/don't have to do something! and what about you, curiousplay54? will you tell him/her?

the person who prepared the meal can distiguish if her/his guest like the food by just observing is having a nice reaction on her/his face...when my first cooked meal, it was really hot and over powering the taste of the fish, i'll try to finish my first serve and give my verdict when we are done..

I think so. we both cook, although mostly I cook and he does the washing up, as I actually really like cooking, but sometimes he cooks, like when I'm tired after work. cooking is an ever evolving process. if we pretend it's nice when it's not, then it won't be any better the next time. although we make the criticism constructive. if we don't like it we'll say why we don't like it, so it can be changed the next time.
