  • I bake from time to time and help my wife as her Sous Chef. She is a truly amazing cook, better than the vast majority of restaurants. My signature dish is pizza, baked on a Pizza Steel, is is artisan pizza basically. i also used to make some amazing fruit tarts but not in a while now.

  • Hell yeah, I cook every single day. Food's one of my biggest passions, actually. I'm also one of those annoying people that likes to take food pictures, and share food pictures.

    I just made these brussell sprouts like an hour ago:

    Here's a white-boy attempt at a Turkish baked good that's called simit:

    Cheese enchiladas, all from scratch (sauce, tortillas-everything):

    Lastly, a coconut curry millet stew that I made a month ago or so:

    • I've never had brussel sprouts before, what do you season them with/how do you cook them?

    • Ohhhh they're so good, and simple to make.

      Get a cast iron pan (or other heavy pan), get it screaming hot, put in about a tablespoon of oil (anything with a high smoke point will do--canola, peanut, coconut, non-extra virgin olive oil, etc.), toss in the sprouts and keep them moving until they get lots of black markings (about 5-8 minutes). At the end, toss in some minced garlic and some scallions or onion, hit everything with some salt and stir around for less than a minute. Take everything out of the pan, and bon appetit!

    • thanks! I'll grab some next time I go shopping. (:

  • I am becoming competent at meatballs for spaghetti. I make decent pizza dough. I can cook straightforward stuff. I make good lamb. I can make a good crumble, and my few attempts at meringues have all gone well. I can make stew though I don't often do it.

    • I am awful at making fresh bread. I have to buy frozen pizza dough when I'm in the mood for some homemade.

      what are your favorite toppings?

    • Good quality salamis
      Peppers
      Sautéed sliced shallots

  • I like cooking, I just don't do it as much as I want. I'm in college right now, and I live with 3 other guys, so when I get my own kitchen just for myself I'm gonna start cooking more often.

    Signature dishes? I don't have any yet, but I'm sure I could cook one of the best dishes ever: Paella.

    • ooo, impressive. what kind of dishes can you make?

    • Show All
    • whoa! no way, so am I... sort of, I have issues with starch and tried to cut it out completely, but replacing the carbs with fruit caused other issues.. anyway, you can use a smaller amount of rice and all non startchy veggies. (:

    • wait! nope, nope. I'm merely low starch, not low carb. very different.

  • Tonight I made chicken madras with naan bread and rice.

    My signature dish, I suppose, is either a full pasta meal (meatballs, pasta, salad, garlic bread, wine) or a 'proper' Sunday roast with a chicken, roast vegetables, steam veg, gravy, etc.

    • ooo! double veggies, nice! (:

    • It would be roasted potatoes/sweet potatoes and parsnips, and steamed peas/carrots probably. I've done Christmas dinner several times, I love being in the kitchen with like a five things on the go at once, and a glass of wine in my hand as I shout at people to go away, I'm cooking :p

    • lol, I love cooking with people but if I'm the only one cooking atm, I want the kitchen to myself too. ;)

  • Homemade breakfast potato chips, impossible to ruin.
    The night before your big breakfast, bake as many potatos in the microwave as you can (you probably won't have leftovers).
    Make sure they're close to fully cooked, but not all the way.
    Throw them in the fridge to cool overnight.
    Following morning, fill a pan with oil heat it on medium-high.
    While your oil is heating up, cut your potatos into slices. How thick is up to you.
    Put a handful of unfried chips into your oil, and cook them however long you want.
    The potatos are already cooked, so there's no need for exact heat or time, and having them be cold keeps them from breaking apart. I'll end up with leftover sausages before I'll find leftover medallions.

    But putting a great dinner on the table makes life so much better.

    • yea. what kind of stuff do you enjoy grilling?

    • I will grill anything.

      I love seafood on the grill and vegetables too. I grill to bake sweet potatoes and regular potatoes.

      Steaks, chicken, pork chops, pork loin, beef tenderloin.

  • I learned to cook because I was living alone and now I'm a expert in Lebanese, Italian and Indian cuisine
    I also love barbecue

    • interesting mix of cuisines. do you even do fuisine type stuff?

    • I'm Lebanese so I know my cuisine, I always liked spices and Indian mixes and most people love Italian food (don't know why) so I try to bring the 3 together and I came up with a recipe I call it "red bombay pasta"
      It is pasta with a carefully chosen mix of indian spices with a Lebanese twist (tomato paste, thyme, and Labna)

    • sounds very interesting!

  • i can do it, but I more enjoy the eating than the cooking. I cook steak often. eat24 is my best friend

  • I can cook most things. I can barbecue, baked goods, I'm especially good at making italian foods like pizza and past. Im guessing u asked this question to see how many guys would be willing to take over the females role of cooking in a relationship. Although I'm good at cooking, i wouldn't want to be the one cooking ALL the time- i wouldn't want it to become my role. But i would be just fine with cooking half of the time. Or here's an idea that i kind of like: Myself cooking part of the meal and my partner cooking the other part at the same time, side by side. Not a bad idea is it? 😁

    • nope. I just wanted to see which guys like to cook. I don't consider it a role. I only asked guys because it was a follow up to the question in the details.

      I really enjoy cooking with people too, it's a lot of fun.

  • I am not some major amazing cheft but I can happily cook a few decent fresh meals from strach : )

    • I love baking most. and yes! experimenting in the kitchen is soooo much fun! (:

      do you have a certain thing you're really great at?

    • Hmmm... I would say my best foods are brisket or other kinds of meat on the smoker, or a good pork tenderloin or steak on the grilled. I also love hosting tapas dinners and making 5-6 small courses of more beautiful and elegant dishes. Food can be so beautiful.

    • I love hosting themed pot lucks! (:

  • I have been told I cook really well...

    I make all kinds of dishes... my specialty is bbq... like using the smoker. Favourite meal is all homemade... smoked beans, smoke back ribs in my own Kansas city bbq sauce, coleslaw, and melt in your mouth Cornbread.

    I also like making seafood stuff... smoked salmon that I catch, with a peppercorn rub and maple syrup glaze with a side of my grilled rice cakes with peanut satay sauce. I like making sushi, and grilled bacon wrapped scallops. Stuffed lobster rolls.

    I also make the best Cabbage Rolls and rice, Hunter Schnitizel &Spaeztle noodles, stews, soups, etc.,

    I learned from my mom, but then took it from there and have expanded my selection.

    When I invite my friends over... they always say yes!

    Can you tell I love to cook... the bigger the group the better! lol
