Are you the alpha cook?

Frank is definitely the alpha cook in our household according to this New York Times article, He Cooks.  She Stews.  It’s Love.  I really related to one of the beta-cooks who said, "[He says] ‘Great, yes, come cook with me.’ And then he gives me the take-the-chicken-out- -of-the-package-and-rinse-it job."  So I found the same solution that one of the other betas found,  "Ms. LaVallee, the adviser to the president of Georgetown University, now chooses to sit on the sideline with a glass of wine."  I usually end up sitting on the kitchen floor talking to Frank defending my glass of wine from the dogs.  All in all though, I think I have the best of all worlds:

life with an alpha cook can mean sitting back and watching while
someone else prepares restaurant-quality wild mushroom risotto on a
quiet Tuesday night.

Great Chefs & Blood Type

Posted in just for fun on December 14th, 2006 by stormy – Be the first to comment

I read this article in the New York Times about how many Japanese people believe your blood type predicts personality.  Curious, I looked it up in wikipedia and discovered why Frank’s such a good cook!

Type Bs also said to make great cooks and restaurant guides featuring Type B chefs are popular products in Japan.

I’m supposedly "reserved, punctual, and law-abiding," not nearly so exciting!
