Are men or women better cooks?
I do all of the cooking in the house, except for a couple of ethnic dishes my wife will make. I love being in the kitchen concocting new meals and experimenting with recipes. It seems as though there are many more male chefs than female. I wonder why?
Generally women are better cooks but it depends on the talent and off course some men may be the better cooks than women
The top chefs around the world do tend to be men.
However I would wager to say in most households women still do the bulk of the cooking (indoors).
Men tend to handle the BBQ grilling at least that's how it is in the U.S.
I really think men make better cooks than women! They are not afraid to try new methods. Women tend to go right by the recipe and not experiment.
I think that it is not really a question of whether women are better cooks than men. I am sure that given equal opportunity to do so there would be little difference at all. I would guess that the reason why there are less doing it professionally it is because it is almost impossible for women with a family to concentrate entirely on themselves and a cooking career.
I would say men,my husband and dad are great cooks but the cooking channel has a lot of great women chefs too. So it is probably dependant on the person.
Many people, no matter what their gender, are great cooks. A lot probably has to do with the drive and passion behind the cook. If they love cooking, then they will pour their heart and soul into it. It's similar to writing. Some are great and then..
Most of the top chefs are male, I think that is because the work is a lot more physical than many at first realize. Women tend to predominate in the home, but that is more to do with the family make up and that men tend to be the major money makers. It has little to do with raw talent.
All factors being equal I do not think there is any major difference in skill levels my Mother was a great cook and Dad was passable. However I do most of the cooking in our house and have a kitchen store on-line the Dressage Husbands Kitchen so I guess each generation is different.
In our home, we share the cooking duties. My wife makes some things better than I do and vice versa. She's a better baker, by far. My baking tends to burn or not taste the way it should, but give me a roast or pasta sauce to work on and she stays out of the way. Big meals, especially those for holidays, we work together.
I don't think the ability to cook is a gender-dependent skill. Some men, and some women, are better cooks than most of us. Some men, and some women, can't be bothered learning how to cook at all. For every Lidia Bastianich, there is a Mario Batali. For every guy who exists on pizza delivery and fast food, there is a girl who uses her oven as shoe storage.
If there appears to be more male chefs than female, it's because for a long time, there were no opportunities for women to work their way up, and no financial backing for them to open their own restaurants. As we dispel the myth that great meals come from male chefs, that is changing.
women are better at cooking, they have the sixth sense that men doesn't. Both my mom and inlaws are great chefs

Do you think men are better than women when it comes to cooking?Men in my family not only love cooking, but they are also a good cook. When it comes to cooking meat, our men are better than the women.
