Default Do homebrewers like to cook?

I find that cooking up a nice big meal is similar and just as satisfying as brewing a great beer. You share and enjoy them with friends and both are something you can be proud of. Both can be crappy too. Live and learn. Anyone else like to cook around here?

Hell yes! I love cooking and can see what you mean when you say it is similar to brewing. Both require patience, practice, knowledge of ingredients and techniques, and both give you something awesome in the end. Cooking seems a little cheaper though

I have no problem with it. I generally like to cook outdoors but during this time of year I cook a variety of things in the home.

+1 on that. All my friends know that if they come to my house theres a couple of channels that I (they) will be watching. First and foremost would be the food network, then the travel channel, discovery channel after that, then tbs (if Seinfeld is on). Even when a game is on espn, during the commercials its back to the food network. awww yeah....

BTW: Good Eats is the best show, followed by Iron Chef (food network)
Anthony Bourdain is the one i like for the travel channel. He's a
sarcastic assh@le just like me. I like to tell people I'm a
Sarcassh@ole

It probably accounts for why we have a huuge cooking and pairing section...I started brewing as an extension of my love of cooking.

You might find the discussion in here interesting http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f19/you-...e-chefs-85034/

I'm not professional, but I devote almost as much time to cooking as homebrewing. I'm pretty huge into food science. Alton Brown started me. When I was introduced to "On Food and Cooking" my life was never the same.

Im a professional chef. I love to cook. I am a chef at the Excel Energy Center, thats where the Minnesota Wild play hockey. I just cooked for Slipknot on Friday. That was kick ass. I almost pee'd myself when I found out. My roomates love when I cook at home. They also recruit me to cook for our parties. And every Memorial weekend I host a BBQ and now we dont have to get a keg I can just make one.

I love to cook. Not very often, though. I don't like making routine dinners, etc, but I love making special dinners. Last weekend, I did a double brew day and while I was brewing, I make lamb shanks. I used my osso bucco recipe, just using lamb instead of veal. It turned out really well, and I served it over polenta.

Good thing that I don't have to cook very often, though- I'm the one who cooks about once or twice a week. Our house rule is "first one home cooks dinner". I manage to not be home first most of the time.
