Default Are you the one who cooks in the house?

Hello my fellow brewers!

Just curious to see if you are the one who does the cooking around the house. I figure most home brewers are since homebrewing is a lot like cooking. Both follow a recipe and you are mostly likely comfortable in the kitchen.

I myself do all the cooking. The kitchen (my brewery) is known as my man cave.


Cheers!

Yes. But only when she doesn't.

We both cook, but I'm the better cook.

After 27 years of training, she is coming along nicely though.

Since I am single and live alone, if I don't cook I don't eat!

It is too often - toss it in the microwave.

I pretty much do all the cooking. Like you said home brewing is a lot like cooking. I can follow a recipe, I know what ingredients I like to cook with and I know what ingredients will taste good together.

Plus I enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that people enjoy eating what I have prepared.

Typically, no. I will cook, no doubt, but I usually work 10-11 hour days and we have three kids at home. Time restrictions dictate that she does most of the cooking.

I do most of the cooking. My wife has never cared much about cooking (especially since she eats like a bird).

When my wife goes in my kitchen, all my tools end up in the wrong place. She hasn't cooked more than a handful of meals in our ten years of marriage.

Yeah, I do most of the cooking and I like it that way. I'm really lucky that my wife does not want to own the kitchen, although she's always interested in the next concoction, whether it's brewing, dinner or soup.

My wife cooks mostly with the phone.

This right here. She cooks sometimes, and makes great food, but the kitchen is usually my domain.
