Have men become better cooks than women?

Take a good look at Gordam Ramsey, he owns a spontaneous restaurant and his own show.

Though, for the females- Nigella seems to also be an excellent chef and ahead of her career.

However, in conclusion, what gender has become better at cooking?

  • yeah definitely men can whip up a meal probably just as tasty if they're interested in cooking.

  • I think both going forward equally. I would rather look at it as "How people cooking amazingly and having successful careers in this industry" than counting the genders and see how many genders are there and which is better. There is no battle between genders. There shouldn't be.

    Cooking is not a gender role nor a gender expression. Cooking is an art. A very difficult and delicious skill that anyone regardless of genders can achieve a certain amount of knowledge and success inside it.

    However, in order to dig deeper, i would separate the home-cooking with career-cooking. Only speaking my observation and experience. I assume in daily lives of our homes. Women rock the kitchen. I believe there are more female skillful chefs inside the households. But when it comes to career driven cooking jobs. I assume men hold more interest to have the cooking skills as a career.

    It's highly cultural as well. France is one of the most famous countries that stands on a unique cooking and they have the best chefs working on high star restaurants. And most of them commonly attend to be men. French men are so famous in cooking industry.

  • Celebrity chefs aren't necessarily representative of the overall picture across millions of homes. It definitely seems that there are more elite male chefs than elite female chefs but, again, we're only seeing a small window into the industry when we see chefs on TV. We don't see all the many hundreds and thousands of chefs in top class kitchens around the world.

  • Cooking is a skill that needs to be worked on, Neither gender is better than the other at the skill. Most world class chefs are men because of archaic rules set by many kitchen masters in the early days that made it harder for women to be in a professional kitchen.

  • It's a shame really, but I'd say in this generation I'd say males are better at cooking overall.

    All women want to do when it comes to cooking is bake sweet stuff even when they're "on a diet." It's like a lost skill now that women are more about equality and getting full time jobs.

  • Some men are great cooks, some women are bad.
    Some men are bad, some women are good.
    If you are one of the bad ones, it's a good idea to find a partner who is good. Or else you'll be eating ramen noodles everyday...

    But I think it's a pretty equal ratio

  • i wouldn't say that i think we're getting pretty close though. its true a lot of the top chefs in the world are men but i still would say on average ime girls are some of the best cooks i know but ya i'd say guys are generally better at cooking than say 50 years ago. Men usually are outside grilling while women do more the food thats made in the kitchen

  • on the whole over the entire population - either I doubt it or women have taken a serious nose-dive.
    Professionally, chef and cook in commercial kitchens used to be only male. Women worked in private house kitchens.
    Women have only recently (relatively speaking) come to be comparable to men in commercial kitchen numbers. (in the past 30 - 50 years).

    From my own personal anecdotal experience - a hell of a lot of women suck at cooking, but men tend to be worse overall.

  • Top chefs have always been predominantly male, of course that says nothing about the average man or woman.

  • Some people are good at cooking, most people are average, and some people can't cook to save their lives. No gender is really better than the other.

  • According to my own experience, no. I have only met one man who could cook tastier stuff than I do.

  • Yes, it's because women nowadays like to sit on the couch with a beer and watch football like men used to do and they hate the kitchen.

  • The fact that there have always been more male professional cooks has more to do with the fact that females were only expected to cook for their families, and men were the ones that were able to cook professionally, and also had the means to do it. We are seeing more female professional cooks nowadays though, as walrus_au said.

  • I think so. In the UK only 18.5% of all professional chefs are female.

  • Become? Ha ha, they always have been. Guys just don't want to learn to cook normally, or pretend they don't know how because they would rather eat something less tasty than be expected to cook every night.

    • Like the confidence there!

    • Laziness in men usually prevails over what we can actually do.
      I know how to cook, do laundry, clean, etc.
      What I don't know how to do is be motivated to do stuff at all though.

    • seems like a pretty accurate description of men

  • Men on average are both worse and better than women in everything.
    This is why top positions are always held by men and everything you see around you is there because of men.
