Cooking is obviously important for the very existence of human life, but for very long, cooking was looked upon as a duty, mostly performed by the women of the house. Since time immemorial, men are looked upon as the bread winners and women as somebody who would take care of the house and cook for all the family members.
Over the period of time, cooking has seen a lot of transition. From being a mere responsibility, it became a science and now an art. It is not important to only cook well, presentation is also important and various foods are eaten with the help of different instruments, like fork, chopsticks and most common being the spoon. It is no more only a women’s domain, men have taken it up big time. In fact a lot of men have taken up cooking as a profession and work as chefs, be it a small motel or a five star hotel. Cooking is now more about culinary etiquettes and beautiful presentations. Also, with more and more eating options available outside, food from all parts of the globe is available everywhere, hence cooking is looked upon more as a passion and love.
