There is something magical about cooking. We learn that food is one of the 3 major components that keeps everyone alive: the others being air and water. It's something everyone shares, yet can be as simple as a tossed salad or as complicated as an authentic Indian curry.

Which is why the sharing of food is usually the core component of any celebration: showers (tea), birthdays (dessert), wedding (lunch/dinner), funeral (comfort food), etc.

I have always loved cooking. Feeling the ingredients in my fingers as I knead/sprinkle/toss them, smell them as they're pounded/fried/blended... you always get a wonderful concoction of colours, smells and flavours.

And food has the ability to make people feel happy. Truely happy.

That's what makes cooking so special to me.

I love to cook. I hate to cook. It's all dependend on how I'm feeling. If I have the energy and time I love to make a nice big meal like a marinated streak with baked potato and greenbeans. If Im tired and cranky after a long day, I don't even feel like making toast. :D

heh, you make cooking sound really sensuous. i find it a big turn on when my SO cooks. something about males preparing a meal in a kitchen compared to the traditional women doing that. nonetheless, i really think you are out to get me by posting all those delicacies from home. NOOOOO, keep the pics coming, it's a good motivation for me to want to come home sooner! :D

Cooking is a very sensuous act, cuz it is so primal. It fulfills one of our most basic desires: to consume. It is one of our most distinctive human traits.

And I totally agree that it is quite a bit of a turn-on to have a man cook for you. Maybe it's the role reversal, or maybe cuz I equate food with love (so simplistic of me), so when offerings of good food are made especially for me, I feel loved.
