Cooking

How important is it to you to be with a woman who cooks? I can't cook at all and I kind of worry about it for the future with my boyfriend.

Add melon to that! Besides, is stracciatella anywhere to be found in the US?



Albeit firm, it is more creamy and I genuinely believe it elevates almost any dish if you replace the mozzarella with it.


thx for the tips...have not ever used stracciatella and not sure if they carry it, but I do know an italian market nearby that has it as a flavor of gelato...also love melon and prosciutto but would not think to pair with the figs as well...already found a couple interesting recipes that use both though....


Man, I love stracciatella flavour and the extra texture / crunchiness the chocolate bits add to it; for gelato, it's definitely one of my favourite. I remember, at first, even I had thought there was some kind of correlation between the two but turns out there is none and that stracciatella is just a shared name.

Actually, I've researched the origin (as I was curious) and discovered its name comes from entirely different recipe, which is this egg-based, poor man's soup of our tradition, also known as stracciatella alla romana .



It was 1961, and rumour has it that a man owning a gelateria was so obsessed with this (popular at the time) soup that - I'm assuming it was under the effect of drugs but anyway lol - all of a sudden he had this vision: while churning his fresh fiordilatte base for the ice cream, he threw in the "processor" the dark chocolate too.



The result was nothing new in terms of flavour; however, that day (and for the first time) he had somehow noticed that the melted chocolate (contrasting the cold ice cream) had the same tendency to cloth irregularly as the egg thrown into the boiling broth... hence the name he therafter gave to it.

A decade later, his name rose to prominence again because his son was kidnapped. But that's another story.

so if I understand it now, its three things - a soup, ice cream inspired by the soup, and cheese...and as far as actual flavor and substance, all three completely unrelated....and I checked several markets and specialty cheese shops over the weekend; no one carries it....guess the only thing I will be elevating is my pretense of being an authentic Italian with a new story about some rare cheese....thank you for that though...lol

I'll never understand people who refuse to learn how to cook.
it's so liberating. every man and woman should have this in their skill set.
modernity was a mistake
just me!
It's all in what works for the two of you. It is not what gets a ring on your finger. If he loves you, he loves you as you are. It's all good Learning to cook is a good thing though. He probably doesn't want to do it all the time. What if he's not home? What about kids if they come along? But if he enjoys it, there is nothing wrong with letting him do it. I'm sure there are qualities he loves about you & why you are together. No worries!
A lot of stupid in this thread. This isn't a sign thing this a common sense thing. A man loves to be catered too and it's not about sex. Being able to cook and maintain the household is what gets you that ring on that finger.

Feminazy bullcrap is ruining traditional values that uphold and maintain a relationship. Women want everything but can't cook to save their lives or clean for that matter. And it's usually always the girls that are plastered with makeup.

I love to cook... as most know. It's a love language to me.

One of my greatest joys was watching them go crazy over something I cooked... and later asking for it

Same! I really enjoy showing love for someone by cooking. It's an act that requires a lot of thought, care and passion, from the choosing of the ingredients to the preparation and plating. I also love to eat, and certain ethnic dishes I'm very picky about, so that's what triggered me to learn.

That said, these days, I don't know a lot of men who place a ton of value in a woman's ability to cook. It's a plus, but usually not a deal breaker.

OP - Love the new do, btw! Looking more like your Libra ascendant now.

i know this is in the man cave but giiiirl. you gotta learn to cook. good nutrition and taking care of oneself and partner is definitely a commodity. making it taste good wins their heart. it's pretty true with men or women tho. i adore a man who can cook at least as well as i do and him enjoying it is like an aphrodisiac lol. cooking together is the absolute besties... *le sigh*

Posted by ManInTheMoonWhy would you be opposed to be given the less physical work? Men take care of the grunt work while women do logistics because that's what both sides excell at. There's no underlying reason other than it's because men are biologically adapt at physical and women are less suited to doing physical. It's not cultural but biological. I'd happily let you take on lugging the 50kg bag of cement I do at work to take up cooking and cleaning the house if you want. But seriously coming home and finding a woman making something ready for you just flips a switch in my brain.

Also if a woman can't cook for herself I immediately assume she doesn't care about good food which is a turn off for me.
----
The reason we don't take on lugging the 50kg bag of cement is because we want to save you some manly tears. Let's be honest, how many bags of cement do you have to lift daily? You are comparing daily chores with very occasional tasks, unless you live on some ruins. Plus, cleaning is tiring af, very suited for a strong man like you.

Being serious I think regardless of sex finding your partner has done something for you is great and most of us perceive people who know how to cook, clean etc. as more attractive or valuable.


Everyday for about 30 minutes I have to lift about a ton of dry cement because a whole lot of things are being made. Not to mention the 50 some dried products I have to take to their storage places and the full buckets of sand I have to carry to thr cement mixer. I also have to lift and lower the forms I pour the cement in to get them ready for filling up. And then there's days where I have to sometimes have to take trucks full of the finished product that weighs how many soe kgs load it and unload in how any sometimes. This is also everday unless I have a break. I also move slabs pf marble that are about 250 kg, not alone but still.

So yeah. First world bullbutter problems imho.

Typical home chores, yeah.

You have your job, your partner has hers, so you divide house chores. Simple first world solutions.

Don't worry yourself too much OP. If someone loves you everyone learns how to work it out in the end. I know plenty of long term successful couples that are traditional (man works, woman tends) as I do successful yet eclectic style s (cooking/working/household tasks split between)

Granted the traditional setup can feel more restrictive to some. But some people enjoy clearly defined roles. Others like more flexibility between them and their partner. Neither is right or wrong it just is.

Ask yourself what's most loving and practical to your life. Then ask your Taurus.


Thank you!❤️

Honestly the only complaint women have with cooking is that the men is that they can't shop for butter. They want good food but they can't buy good tomatoes for butter.

Good food needs teamwork to be enjoyed how it should be.

Her cooking game is more important than how she looks to me.

No, I'm not joking.


REALLY!? Why? You're a Scorpio right?


Yes, I'm a man. I don't want to do everything by myself. She cooks and manages the kitchen and I clean everything and maintain the lawn and garage.

Fair trade I think. 50/50 on everything else.


Ugh that's all so stereotypical and horrible lol.


You did ask...


That's true. I guess the feminist in me if just opposed to roles like that.
