Why is cooking always connected to a woman ? Where as all the best chefs in the world are actually men. They prepare the finest cuisines. They are true experts in preparing exotic dishes. Your views are appreciated.

To srart with , a bit of anthropological digression .Restaurants as we know today in a urban area are off-shoots of a roadside dhaba or an eatery , tavern , inn-house , motel all in the business of catering to travelers , strangers , bums and boozers , a woman presence in such places was full of danger to herself . This tradition based on sound reasoning kept women out of this vocation. Gradually in second half of 20 th century women in the west were entering the job market , women waitresses became the norm ... also considered good for business. In the present , scenario is changing , Thai and to some extent Chinese women have been chefs for long time. In US and London there are women chefs today in three star Michelin rated restaurants . So things are looking up for women to get recognition of their cooking skills outside the home .

Still majority of women in our country are house keeper. They not only do cooking but so many other things in her house. Men are fit for out door jobs & equally do it effectively.

Women are busy in teaching men and take care of the household too. You are always good at the Home Front which is different. Men do it for business whereas women do it for a good relationship with the Family.
