Topic tags/keywords: question

How many woodworkers like to cook? I do. But I like to eat even more. Pretty good on the grill. I can fry great fish. And I can make a cranberry cheesecake that is out of this world. I also wonder how many will question my manhood?

Love to cook. Hate to clean up afterwards. I make killer Chicken Parmesan, and great from-scratch burgers.

I also love to cook and do a good job of it. Last week was a 20 Lb. Standing Rib Roast with all the trimmings and 8 Guests for a Dinner Party.

YES! It definitely takes Planning & Pre-Preparation, If you want it to come off right.

My “Manhood” Hasn’t suffered at all! That’s like asking if a Woman’s “Womanhood” will suffer if She tries Woodworking or does something under the Hood of the car.

With All Due Respect. Was there any particular reason that you Titled this Topic ” Off Topic Content. Click to see post”. That was a title that Management applied to ALL Coffee Shop Topics at one time. Members NEVER used it themselves that I’m aware of.

I for one am Glad it’s gone.

Thank You: Rick

I agree Rick. But a woman can look really hot in a mans shirt. But a man in a womans shirt?? Nope. Just sayin.
Never posted an off topic post before.

We had a guy at a steel mill where I worked years ago. Best cook ever. He was an electrician but his primary assignment – shift cook. We covered for him to cook. Butter beans with ham hocs, chicken bog, fish stew, we ate well on my shift.
I like to cook but like woodworking there is room for improvement.

My wife is a vegetarian, so I’ve become a dab hand at meat roasts and stews. My latest favorite quickie is sautéed and creamed mushrooms on toast.

Most of the great chefs of the world are men it has nothing to do with being manly or not.Have you ever seen Robert Irvine he’s a body builder chef that has his own TV show and has a lovely wife ? Remember Rosie Greer the old football player ,he liked to needle point,so no one gave him a hard time ,even though this was 30 + years ago . Do what you like cooking is a great hobby or need and unlike woodworking you get to eat the end project. Enjoy!

a1jim ”Most of the great chefs of the world are men”
I have heard that to be true and the reasoning was,men are more likely to take chances , explore new blend of spices,ignore recipes in parts or all together,
Although since we retired my wife is cooking great food so I don’t know if the statement above is true or not.

Perhaps I should have said Professional chefs,this is not to discount that woman are great chefs also, I was just addressing Cutworms question about questioning ones manhood because he cooks.

I too love cooking…or should I say exploring in the kitchen.

i usually come up with stuff that tastes good. Doesn’t always start with a recipe and when it does I don’t usually follow it exactly. That being said usually when I bring something to a party, whatever I made is the hit dish.

Jim ,lol,I meant my statement( the reason behind men being better chefs ) may not be accurate .you are right about most great professional chefs happen to be men,even my wife agrees with that.
Sorry for not being clear.
PS,I cook but I refuse to wear an apron.

I would wear my apron to cook, but it is too hard to get all the woodchips and sawdust off it.
