I love cooking and do not have a partner now, so there is no choice.

However it is always nice when someone else does the cooking for me, just as long as it is not in my kitchen as I am fussy and get agitated with someone working in my kitchen as they make mess!

AND they use too many dishes -another thing I am rather obsessive about -learnt from my mother!!!

I never, ever saw my mother make a mess in the kitchen, I don't and my daughter has carried it on too. I always work methodically, I tidy as I go and I wash up as much as possible during the process. My cutting boards are all ONLY for specific purposes too. . . . AND marked with Nikko pens. I hate anybody else in my kitchen. (Do I sound like a tyrant?)

I do all the cooking in my house. I do it because it needs to be done. I would much prefer if someone did it for me. If money was no object I'd definitely hire a chef!

Amen to that AJ.

We had a business (Wine Bar) and had a door to our premises thru the bar.My Mother worked the bar 14 hrs a day, I had to learn how to cook....so she would get meals.I would take them to her, and run back into the premises.
I was very grown up, for my age...had to be.

Totally with you, jonaj. LOL. I don't mind cooking, but having somebody else to it from time to time would be just lovely.

I love cooking but sometimes I wish someone else would do it.

I grew up with 2 parents who were 'creative' cooks rather than ones who religiously followed recipes.From a VERY early age we were encouraged to cook if we wished to,and I adored doing this!! I have continued to enjoy cooking all through me adult life. My son followed this trend of enjoying cooking in his childhood and would prepare amazingly intricate meals if I had to work late,and also when I was ill.As soon as he turned 15 he was offered 3 apprenticeships as a chef and if he had been able to,he would have accepted all of them!! He does not cook for me though,as he has moved from Nth Qld to the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria,just near where I grew up!! My parents often enjoy his masterpieces though!! I have the best of both worlds here.I cook for myself,and I also have a lovely young neighbour who will often send one of her sons over with a delicious meal for my dinner! What a great life!!
In my house my husband and I both love cooking. We each use the time to cook as down time from the kids. Unfortunately we both hate washing up!

Miki_ do you have a dishwasher?

My husband cooks a lot of our meals, and I like it that way. He's quite skilled and it lets me get on with other things.
Someone else every time. Luckily I know lots of good cooks.
LET. SOMEONE. ELSE. DO. IT. - Hate it with a vengeance...

I love to cook, its the cleaning up afterwards I don't like doing.
I love to create French dishes.

I love cooking, always have.
Both my Mother, & her Mother, were fabulous cooks.
Any dish they couldn't cook, wasn't worth eating! And they didn't just cook 'easy' recipes, but difficult, & imaginative ones. I would actually class my Mum as a 'Cordon Bleu' cook, she was just sooooo good. I 'helped' her from a very young age. Mum was VERY organised. She got all the ingredients measured, sorted, & lined up in recipe order. Had all Utensils at the ready, too.

If my Sister was requiring a Dinner to be held for her husband's bosses, Mum would do 80% of the required Catering.

From about 10 years' of age, my son, started helping me in the Kitchen. He wanted to learn as much as possible, as he'd decided he wanted to be a Chef!

He's now Head Chef at a busy, vibrant suburban Restaurant. He's also got his Patisserie Certificate, & B.Hosp.Mgt.

So cooking's been pretty important in my life!



I love cooking and I do cook a lot. Since my husband and my two teenage daughters have the same enthusiasm for cooking as I do, they have their allocated day to create nothing sumptuous too. Cooking is a family affair at our place!
I do the cooking. I really enjoy preparing meals.
My husband cooks as I hate the heat, particularly in the warmer months. It started out that he cooked as he was home from work first, then as I worked closer to home it was supposed to be the cooler months for me but working longer hours meant that he cooked or wait until about 9 p.m. so in the end he did it all the time. Now I'm retired he still cooks so it's rare for me to be in the kitchen but I cook the old fashioned meals like shepherds pie and tasty casseroles, sausage rolls, etc. because he's hopeless with these as well as cakes, muffins, etc. so my adult family and grandchildren still ask me for the favourites andWestern Australian Athletics Stadium, Mt Claremont, Perth WA


Sorry. The bit about W.A. somehow got in there when my tablet stuck. As I was finishing by saying banana bread seems to be everyones favourite (just baked another one tonight as one daughter popped in to pick one up from my freezer).

I don't mind doing the cooking, if my husband cooks, I don't mind, but when it comes to doing the dishes, I hate it! he uses a quarter to a drop of dishwash detergent, and the sink doesn't look clean, neither does the benchtop, and the top of the stove, doesn't get cleaned, and I hate this to a T, we have disagreements to how the dishes are done, and the kitchen doesn't look clean.
