Essay Boy Should Learn To Cook

Photo by f_mafra

Some guys I know don’t consider cooking a worthwhile venture. Besides the occasional stint behind the grill, they’d rather bask in blissful ignorance than feed themselves in more than 3 steps: stab, chew, swallow.

But ask any woman (or man that already knows how) why it is better to be a kitchen savvy dude and you’ll start to see what these guys are missing.

Whether it’s because they think it takes too much time, too much effort or wrongly assume it’s a woman’s job, men who never learn to cook are losing a huge opportunity to take their man skills to the next level.

8 Reasons Regular Guys Should Learn To Cook

1. Chicks dig it

There isn’t a woman alive immune to a man who can make her a delicious meal. Step up to the plate boys, we’re begging you.

2. Life skills are manly

You can fix your car, hunt wild animals and build a camp fire. Shouldn’t you know how to feed yourself without a drive-thru?

3. You’ll save money

Though there’s a good chance you’re single if you never learned to cook (see point #1), a home cooked meal is a much cheaper date night (or singles night) than dinner for two at Chez Fancy—particularly with the 150% wine mark up common at most restaurants.

4. It’s faster than going out

Fancy date meals aside, cooking at home is almost always faster than going out—so long as you know what you’re doing. Once you have a few basic skills down, you can stop wasting your time in fast food spots simply because you don’t know what else to eat.

5. Guy Fieri shouldn’t be better than you at anything

Food Network star Guy Fieri has bad hair, bad clothes and douchey sunglasses, but the dude knows how to cook. Are you going to let him upstage you like that? Of course you aren’t.

6. Your puppy (aka girl magnet) will eat better

My notoriously adorable puppy Toaster loves salad scraps (sugar snap peas are his favorite), eggs, meats, fish, and pretty much anything else we’re willing to share. A balanced diet is as good for dogs as it is for people (just don’t give them onions, garlic or grapes).

7. You might lose weight

Cooking is one of the easiest ways to improve your diet and stick to reasonable portions. This is a recipe for weight loss, if you’re willing to swallow it.

8. You might like it

Cooking is relaxing, fun, creative, purposeful and, hopefully, delicious. Why wouldn’t you want to add this skill to your tool belt?

Why do you guys like to cook?

Write a debate on the topic;Boys should not help in the kitchen.Speak for or against the motion.

  • English - Ms. Sue

    Which side are you on?


  • English - Anonymous

    Of course boys should not help in the kitchen. This is women's work. If boys are going to help around the house they might mow the lawn if the girls are too lazy to do so. Also -- men always have willing women around to do the women's work. Men have more important things to do and think about.

  • English - Vanessa

    I am against the motion. Please I need points to write for my side.

    Do you think boys should help in the kitchen?


  • English - Vanessa

    to reduce the burden on their mothers and sisters.

  • English - Ms. Sue

    They live there; shouldn't they help with the chores?

    Many men live by themselves and so need to know how to take care of themselves. They need to know how to cook, clean, and do laundry.

  • English - Maxwell

    I know that when boys help in the kitchen it can help to reduce the burden on girls in the house because part of the cooking and other works that require more strength will be done by the boys.Also,boys will grow to become men who will eventually marry as life requires.It is a fact that your wife will not always be present at home she might travel or go to programmes.So,if your children are hungry you can be of help to them by cooking and doing other chores with the skills obtained in your childhood.
    On the other hand,we all know that fathers are the role models of boys and since fathers leave the kitchen for mothers so should boys also leave for girls.Why am I saying this?
    Firstly, there is division of labour in every society as well as home, that is to say there is home chores for boy seprately from girls.Boys need to folllow up the works of their fathers in order for them to become good fathers in future.Moreover, I am of the view and sense that,the works of boys are harder and physically challenge that even if they are willing to be helpers of their lovely mothers in the kitchen the feel so tired after work.And since they become tired after the tedious work,therefore should be considered to stay away from the kitchen.The last of my points is that, some boys are willing hundred percent to help in the kitchen so that they can become good caterers in the future owning big restaurants but are being teased and mocked away from the kitchen by their peers which has the highest influence in us in today's world.
    Mr.Chairman, since all the above listed points are undeniable facts that the motion "boys should not help in the kitchen" should be stood for, I therefore rest my case.Thank you.
    this will help.

    Mr.chairman, panel of Judges, Accurate Time Keeper, Invited Guest, Ladies and Gentlemen, I rise to speak against the before house that"Boys should not help in kitchen. Traditionally,it has been assumed that kitchen is a place for females not for males. Because of this reason, girls in many homes are confined to the kitchen while boys are sent to school. It is also a known fact that girl can been seen performing almost all the domestic duties while boys can been seen sleeping and relaxing their body. Mr.chairman,ladies and gentlemen, those who claimed that kitchen is for females not for males claimed in accordance with provision of Bible stated that male should cultivate the land and females to the bearing of children. To support their claim they refers to the creation story of the fall of man in the Old Testament in which God told Adam that he would toil and sweat before he would
