As nothing more than an excuse to play a Chef! video…
For the most part cooking is a Beta Male skill and a very useful one. But if you push it hard enough… it can turn into a means of establishing Alpha dominance.
Of course naturally I don’t advise taking a large knife to anything but a roast chicken. But being able to really cook large quantities of good food for things like parties just frames you as the man.
Of course as soon as you hear anything remotely close to the phrase “kitchen bitch” lobbed in your direction…. you leave a selection of instant oatmeal near the microwave for every meal until such time as a proper apology is made.
