    It's pretty obvious that dating is all about cooks. Do you think gay guys are pickier and emphasize too much on the entrees than personality?

    What about all the guys who can't cook, what should they do icon_eek.gif

    Two words - take out

    Oh, and if you want to fancy it up, just transfer the food from the cardboard/plastic/foam containers to actual plates. icon_cool.gif

    I dated many great cooks who didn't know anything about interior design, and guys who were average cooks who really knew how to put a house together. At the end of the day, cooks might get my attention but you have to have a well-arranged house to keep my attention.

    Blasphemy!!!! Around this trailer park, we just eat it straight out of the carton it came in. For christmas, we do splurge on the paper plates and plastic sporks, though...


    (Just Kidding... :lol)

    fuck I LOL'd when I read the title and first post of this thread.

    uhmm I can proudly say I can cook! I do it so I can keep an exact eye on what I'm eating and so I can cut down food costs too.

    If this were true, I wouldn't be able to walk out the front door without a pitchfork and a baseball bat to hold them off.

    Alas, I am safe...

    It depends on how hot the appetizer is. icon_wink.gif

    How you plate the entree is pretty important no matter how big a cook you are. Plated just right, even the most average of entrees can become very appealing. And you'd be amazed at how pairing an entree with the appropriate wine can really make up for some of the deficiencies in the entree. And if the entree is really jacked up, just have more wine and you won't care. Of course if you have too much wine you may find that the entree is all over you in the morning. That can be especially horrific if the entree turned out to be fish as opposed to beef. icon_eek.gif

    I prefer it if my date doesn't pull out his crockery the first time I come over.

    The remains of my dinner party throwing 20s-early 40s, the preAlzheimer's years when life was fun and carefree...

    Heh. I've been accused of collecting cookbooks for the pictures.

    (how can you try vegan if you don't have any recipes?)

    Love a good cook.

    Though entertaining me with the etymology of the word "entree" could probably get my attention too.

    I'm not vegan but have been mostly vegetarian for at least 15 years now. The recipe conversions are pretty simple, you just leave out the meat. A lot of flavor in recipes come from all the other stuff anyway. The one thing you can't really fake out is barbequed beef. Some of the fake meats come close on a grill (after you get used to them, that is) but never quite hit the spot, kind of like a night of bad sex. Better than no sex but leaving something still desired.

    Obviously if you're not so great in the cooking department, you have to really try hard. You have to learn all sorts of tricks (plating, sauces, add-ons) in order to actually get someone to give it a try.

    There are some guys who are just great cooks, and they have it easy.

    Not any kind of decent cook here...........but I do a lot of other things well - including cleaning, polishing, dusting, vacuuming, windows, cars, gardening, patio & garage cleaning, laundry -- even ironing. I try to contribute --- but I'm just not interested in cooking. When I'm single, I eat out most of the time.

    One of my buds came over for lunch. We were grilling brats. Although I'm known for my delicious sausage, to me it's all about the bun... and his soft buns are incredible. He makes the dough from scratch but lets me take over from there. I like his buns to be a little firm in the beginning so that I can take my time working them over. To keep them from sticking together I put oil on my hands and slowly run my finger up and down, side to side, along the opening and gently slide my finger in and out.

    Funny thing is, if my finger moves the right way for a bit, his buns actually start to rise up and down on the counter. That's when I know it's time for me slide in the meat. Now cooking my meat normally takes several minutes but today we both were in a bit of a rush. My sausage was ready after about 10 minutes and but just before the timer went off it fell out of the bun. He grabbed it with his hands and juice went all over the place! He still gobbled it up. Man, he sure loves himself a good cook.

    LOL, I wonder... Dave is a most excellent cook, and I'm really digging it (I'm not too shabby myself).

    Maybe there is something to this! icon_lol.gif
