Cooking is awesome. One of the most favourite activities with my lover is to put together an intricate, often multi course meal.
I think that a couple’s chemistry in the kitchen can reflect the chemistry in the bedroom, and there are cues you can look out for in the first to help improve that of the latter.
1. Be adventurous
Make anything from experimental tacos, to tartar to boeuf Borgnion Julia child’s strict style. Don’t cook the same three meals on repeat, that’s like subjecting your lover to missionary for the rest of your life. Eventually he or she is going to want some freaking exotic flavours.
Be ahead of that, experiment yo!
2. Doing it alone because you are just better and faster at putting together a meal is troubling, as it tells me that you are selfish. Sure, it’s easier alone, as is occasionally getting yourself off, but it is not as satisfying as a well deserved team effort.
3. At the same time, sometimes cooking for your lover while he or she enjoys a tasty beverage is a richly pampering experience. There are days when you just wanna sit back and relax while someone else does all the work!
4. You are working together to achieve a common goal. Things are heating up, you have to multitask and timing is everything! Those are skills greatly appreciated in a lover and a cook alike.
5. You need to be able to take directions / give directions.
A good chef (and a good lover) should communicate his or her expectations. Your partner is not a mind reader and you need to give specific Instructions. Communication is key!
6. You need to be able to take criticism / give criticism in an non offensive and constructive way. If your significant other isn’t chopping fast enough, or stirring in the right direction, you need to be able to voice that in a non bossy way.
And remember ‘You’re doing it wrong’ is not constructive criticism. Before criticizing, remember that there are more than one way to accomplish any task. In the end it doesn’t matter if the peppers are diced or sliced – they are equally delicious.
7. You need to be able to take control when required, but also know your place when you have agreed to be sous chef. And I definitely encourage you to switch roles every once in a while. There is so much you can learn by doing something you are not 100% comfortable with.
Practice makes perfect, so don’t worry if you don’t perform perfectly the first few times. Read point #5 & 6 again.
Follow these steps to become a master lover and chef. May all your meals be sinfully delicious!
This post is actually my lover’s idea. It is a collaboration of our amazing teamwork.
