The Perfect Cook’s Checklist: How many can you do?

 

How good are your culinary skills girls? Be honest.

A research sometime back suggested that women finally become perfect cooks at the grand old age of 55.

The said research showed that by the time they reach their mid-fifties, the female of the species has learned how to cater for parties of 12 or more, throw together random ingredients to make a decent meal, and rescue a dinner that has gone awry.

By 55 the typical women will also have the ability to produce 15 meals on a regular basis all cooked from scratch.

Take this checklist and see how good a cook you are:

  • Make gravy so that it is not runny
  • Can cook fried eggs without breaking the yolk
  • Can cook the perfect boiled egg
  • Cook beef until it’s not tender not tough
  • Cook carrots until they are aldente rather than soggy
  • Cook broccoli which isn’t mushy
