“Should a man learn how to cook?” This question has been asked many times over by men seeking approval of theirs buddies. For some guys, only the open flame of a grill is worthy of their devotion. For they believe that the kitchen is a woman’s domain and should be off limits to a real man.
In today’s world, however, a man should hold his own in the kitchen. Men are dedicating more and more time to the “bachelorhood” of their post-college days, in which ramen noodles and peanut butter sandwiches just don’t cut it. And to be honest there is something supremely manly(and primitive) about being able to kill it, cook it, eat it. Ok, maybe not kill it, but you get the point. From the mammoth-hunting cavemen of the stone age, to the campfire-roasting cowboys of the wild west, cooking is in our genes.
If you still find yourself among the non believers. Then, on any given Monday tune in to Anthony Bourdain’s: No Reservations, and let the world-traveling, beer-drinking, food expert himself educate you on the connection between a man and his food. So, should a man learn how to cook? Or at the very least make a sincere attempt at learning a recipe or two? The answer, ABSOLUTELY! The kitchen, is not reserved for women, and believing so is, in my opinion, a sign of a weak human being.
So to help you along the path to manhood, we’ve featured a recipe from Men’s Fitness. It’s simple, healthy, and to the point. Enjoy!
