In your household, does the man cook or the woman or both or neither? (I know it's a weird question, but I was talking to someone recently and I wanted to prove something to them. Long story.)

Mrs Didge cooked for me for almost forty years (I cooked when we were on holidays) so when I retired, almost 20 years ago, I took over the cooking (and she cooks when we're on holidays).

She enjoys being waited on. :)

Lynne's a more imaginative cook than me, too, but she won't admit it. She likes sitting back so even if I stuff up she tells me how great it is. (That'd be good for the ego if I didn't know she's just buttering me up so I'll keep cooking.)

Sounds like man food. I reckon he and Hippy would probably enjoy a pizza together.

My wife does the majority of the inside cooking but I do some. I do the majority of outside cooking on the fire pit (preferred), gas grill or charcoal grill, but she does some.

The Wifey worked a swing shift for about 4 years, during which time I took over as cooker of dinners. She still makes superior meals, but we got all used to me doing the cooking. I'd say it's about 50% me, 30% her, and 20% "Fend for Yourself".

I do most of the cooking in our house. My girlfriend likes baking cakes and stuff like that though, which is great because I'm not good at baking...

I spent several years working in restaurants and bars, so I like my cooking fast-paced and sizzling.

I'm not a fan of sitting around and waiting for things to set, or 2 hour+ cooking times!

We both cook but not any predetermined rotation.  Somehow it just gets done - or we sit and look at each other and then go out to eat. 

Tonight I made a very nice chicken/pasta salad.  Last night she made spaghetti with homemade sauce of fresh basil and cherry tomatoes (from our garden), garlic, toasted pine nuts, olive oil and some secret spices.
