    Default men make the best cooks.

    The statement seems unfair and biased, but true.

    Why is it so?

    The statement IS unfair and biased.
    The statement also is untrue.


    In order to decide such a thing fairly, you'd need measurable criteria
    on what the definition of "best" is when applied to cook.


    Look at the number of men who think their mothers or wives are the best
    cooks in the world. Count them in your tally.

    It's possibly an attempt to start a flame war but the actual
    "chef" in the world's best restaurants is usually male. Of
    course, there are some superb female chefs. There is even an
    organization of female chefs in France and the food at places
    recognized by the organization can be very good. I remember
    eating at one in Poitiers where the maitre was very proud of his
    wife's membership and mentioned it to every guest!

    Of course it's an attempt to start a flame war. And I'll cite Julia Child,
    who didn't want to cook in the first place, as the first great female chef

    Of course. The problem is men are so competitive. Must be best this, best
    that, win awards, kudos and accolades. Who cares? I feel the same way
    about designer clothing.

    What really matters is whose food tastes the best and is the best for the $.
    I've gotten some of my best meals at little mom & pop places that don't
    pretend to have "chefs". I don't go to restaurants that charge $$$ because
    of the name or who is associated with it.

    Probably means professionally. There are more male cooks (not
    necessarilly "better" than females) solely because cooking
    commercially is an extremely physically demanding occupation. A lot
    of commercial kitchens won't hire females simply because they feel
    that females won't be up to the task, and in most cases very likely
    not. Naturally there are exceptions but there are many male dominated
    occupations because of superior physical ability only; construction,
    heavy manufacturing, mining, metal workers, plumbers, electricians,
    truck drivers, heavy equipment operators, and of course you won't
    encounter too many female commercial bakers and cooks the same as you
    won't lumberjacks. There are many professional male cooks who learned
    how to cook from their mothers and who think their mothers are much
    better cooks than they are but wouldn't want their mother to work as a
    cook.

    It is a universally recognized truth.

    I have eaten many home cooked meals, the men outshine the women by a large
    margin.
