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.

Eggs. I can fry up a good egg.

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.
