Learning how to cook is really useful. I am learning some stuff from my mom day by day as I don't want to eat take-out every day, sure they taste great most of the time but if I eat it too much then I will never want to eat them again. I will post some of my mom's recipes later on. Believe it or not I have created some of my own recipes. Who knows someday my recipe might become famous you know!!

I have nothing against cooking. I think it's an important activity. But girls already have it covered and they're already quite good at it by doing it for generations. No need to complicate stuff.

What I've noticed about many of us probashe Bangladeshi lads who came abroad for college is that very few of us used to know how to cook, being in general our mothers' chokher moni, kolijir tukra, etc., i.e. spoiled brats, who only went into the ranna-ghor to sneak a sample from the dishes being prepared.

And initially, what with the cafeteria and fast food outlets available, this wasn't an issue. But time passes, and then you start getting nostalgic about your mother's bhajis, bhortas, machh bhajas and jhoals. You know that the tripe served in "Indian" restaurants is just that, items that Westerners might find exotic, but not at all satisfactory to any discerning Bengali palate, so the next time you go home on vacation, you watch your mother cooking and you try to take notes. And you fail, because she's one of those old school chefs who cook by instinct, not using measuring spoons or cups, gauging just the right amount of salt or spices to add as if by magic. So you buy some of Siddiqua Kabir's books and take them back with you. And you practice, and you experiment, and you buy yet more books. And because you are a perfectionist, at least when it comes to Bengali cuisine, you improve, you get better and better. You develop your own cooking instinct, knowing, as if by a sixth sense, what to add where, and when. No, you are never going to be able to cook like your mother, but your cooking is good nevertheless -- it has a style and flavour all its own, it's recognizably Bengali, and it's adored by all your friends.

So Parisa, if the boys nowadays are anything like those of my generation, you don't have anything to worry about: they're likely to be excellent chefs themselves. Still, it's a good skill-set to acquire. Siddiqua Kabir has some books In English (if you aren't that comfortable with recipes written in Bengali). Now, I personally think she goes overboard on the amount of salt, but that's just my personal opinion.

Shaad bhai - you nailed it. Mostly - about how we guys have become cook. I suspect my motivation for cooking is a little different though. Growing up in the middle east, I saw many an argument between the parents end with a capitulation by my dad because he was hungry and needed some home-cooking So at a very early age I resolved that if/when I got married, I'd not give my partner that kind of automatic upper-hand The fact that I actually enjoy is just a nice bonus

For generations men have been better at cooking than women. Think of all the chefs in the world who earns a living by cooking.

Unlucky for the women, why cant women think of having a career as a 'chef'
you'll see in every Bengali house there is a woman cooking in the kitchen,
but why cant she cook in those restaraunts, so much cooking talents are
being wasted within these beautiful women, who are cooking because of
thier husbands, damn husbands no common sence. (I will never let my wife
cook on her own, we will share the love of food in the kitchen between us.)
If you are a husband please forgive me.

My cooking sucks. I tried it a few times, it was worse than the worst cafeteria food I ate.

That's not homely food. That's business. There's no love attached to that kind of food.

Absolutely. I think women who are good cooks should stand up for themselves and start cooking for their household and show off their power immediately. They have to defend their territory.

Oh please, what man does that? I can't even remember to put the toilet seat down, and you expect me to talk to cooking ingredients and wait in front of an oven?

I make money and bring food, the girl cooks it, we eat it together. That's how it should go ideally.

Some of the well known chefs cook with a lot of passion. Switch on your TV sometimes and watch some cooking progs. These people made a career out of cooking for years. You think they just cook for the sake of it? Watch Jamie Oliver, Gordon ramsey, Ainsley Harris and many more. These guys love being in the kitchen.

Well, I switch on my TV and usually go for the sports channels (these days it's mostly tennis), or occasionally the news channels.
