I find Jamie Oliver sexy, if you look at just his appearance, if someone showed his photograph one would think he is a plump bloke but I find him sexy for his love for cooking, the way he tastes his food smerks and says “yum” or the way he chops his herbs and decorates them in his messy way on his dishes. I will not deny that I haven’t fantasied him shirtless cooking for me. It was during my later teens when I use to study till early morning for my Charterd Accountancy exams,oh so exhausting!  around 3 a.m. I would take a break, that was the time of Jamie’s cooking show on tv.  I would be eating junk or instant noodles and watch Jaimie Oliver cook. I would always lose track of time and my 10 minute break would go on till the end of the show. Then I would shrug my self to reality and push myself to get up and study, infact in a very sexy way Jamie inspired me to do something of my extremely aimless life.

Most  men are so dumb, ok let me correct it most Indian men are so dumb they don’t realised women of any age group are attracted to men who can cook…

For me one of the things I got attracted to my husband was the fact that he use to cook when we were studying together. That was the time I did even know to boil rice or slice onions, here was my friend who  would cook and I sat there chatting him up. Today my husband cooks but when we lived with his parents, for a typical Indian mother, her boy ( her Krishna, mind you Indian society is one of the most partial society for a boy child which I don’t approve of ) entering the kitchen is a forbidden territory. Most Indian mothers think how can my prince enter the kitchen ? How dare his wife asks him to get  even a glass of water?

To all the Indian mothers, it is very attractive and a good quality of a boy that he can cook. Cooking is something one does to fulfill one primary need of hunger so how can that be just a woman’s job? For me a person is a big time loser or incapable  if they cannot fulfill their own basic needs. Do you ask someone else to go to the bathroom for you? So how can a person not cook for one’s own basic need?

Typical Indian mother’s don’t understand that if your son cooks for his wife and children then not only will she love him more, remain attracted to your son, their married life will be awesome and above all you, the mother will get the credit for raising a boy who is not only sensitive but comfortable in his sexuality and is man enough to cook, it’s a win win situation for everyone 🙂

Many times I hear horror stories of men all over India, that they don’t know even to cook instant noodles or boil a potato but want food cooked from their wives to the best of standards, they will complain about the colour of tomatoes or how it doesn’t taste not like their mummy’s food. Oh I have not slapped anyone since a long time except a boy who pinched my butt in a lift, I slapped him and beat him black and blue with my purse but it’s been a while, so if I come to know a food complainer who cannot cook himself, beware of me…

This to all the men who find cooking is a woman’s job, get it straight only woman’s job is to bear a child cause we are biologically made for it, other than that everyone on this gola ( planet) are equal.

So to all the typical male chauvinist people it’s a very satisfying and attractive quality to cook, instead let go of you other habits which women are branded for from generations, stop gossiping, back biting, getting involved in petty family politics etc etc…be a man and learn to cook, even the primitive man knew how to do that….learn to sustain you existence

I am many things but a hypocrite, once my husband commented, ” you know our son will have such high expectations from his future wife cause you cook so well, he is very particular about taste.” I replied making sure our son was listening ” you know I will not allow that, if he wants to eat something he will have to learn it for himself, expecting from his wife is absolutely wrong plus he should learn to love his wife by cooking for her”

Cooking isn’t rocket science just cooking rice, dal or soup will also go long way to earn those browny points 🙂 eventually it all about loving your partner and understanding to give her a break, let her take a long shower or let her read her unfinished book or submit her pending reports.

Imagine when children see their fathers cooking in the kitchen not only it encourages their creative side and inspires them, they feel secure and loved…think about it.

Sharing an easy recipe of Jamie Oliver, it’s a creamy winter soup

Serves 2

Ingredients :

1 potato peeled and chopped in small squares

1 onion chopped finely

1 carrot peeled and chopped in squares

1 cup corn kernels

3-4 cloves of garlic finely chopped

1 cup milk or 2 tbsp of cream

1 green chilli finely chopped

1 vegetable stock cube

1 tbsp of olive oil

Parsley to garnish

Salt and pepper


In a pot heat the olive oil, add the garlic, onions and green chilies. Coke till the onions are pink.

Add the potatoes, carrots and corn.

Add 3 -4 cups of water, milk, vegetable stock cubes, parsley, salt and pepper.

Cook for 15 minutes on a low simmer  or till the vegetables are cooked properly. Add water if required.

Take a hand blender and move it randomly in the soup. Choice is yours if you want it blend more or chunky vegetables in it.

Serve hot with bread…dip a piece of bread eat it, close your eyes and go yum…just like the master himself, Jamie 🙂

      You can never be like those dumbos
      Hugs 😊

  2. Oh my god, yes! A man should know how to cook. I don’t find Jamie Oliver that sexy but I do get what you’re talking about. I’d hate to be together with a guy who always expects me to do the cooking. If he doesn’t have the skills yet, he should at least be willing to learn (and for all guys reading this – here’s a class on Skillshare that’ll teach you your first recipe ).
