My Quote in Today Weekend Article: A Man’s Place is in the Kitchen

I was asked by Today to provide a few thoughts on men who cook which was published in last weekend’s Today paper.

These were the questions that I was asked:

  1. What do you think of men who wear the aprons at home?
  2. Who does the cooking in your household, and why?
  3. How does the ability to cook enhance a man’s appeal to the opposite sex?

My answers were:

  1. An apron is to men what a French Maid’s uniform is to women. Its rather sexy don’t you think? Especially if it is ONLY the apron…… But seriously, I think most women appreciate a well domesticated man.
  2. I’m pretty fussy about food, my wife is more chin chai, so I do the cooking since there will be less quarreling that way. Besides the person who does not cook gets to wash up and I don’t like washing up.
  3. I was told that one of the things women want in a relationship is security. If the guy can cook, she’ll never have to worry about being hungry. Even in an economic downturn, a few eggs, flour and chopped up vegetables can be transformed into a pretty mean Okonomiaki!

How would you all have answered those questions?
