Cooking makes me hungry and hunger makes me cook....
can't say it makes me want to drink, or that drinking makes me want to cook...
I must be the anomaly! LOL.

I'm personally really fond of an once (or two) of Benedictine as I'm cooking. It tends to loosen the mind and get creativity flowing :-P

drinking's rampant amongst Chefs. we learned that during class from an instructor. with us culinary students, too. soon-to-be Chefs that drink fer lunch then return to class.

Did you ever watch cookery shows with Keith Floyd - it was reckoned that he was always half cut. He would drink on screen as well. It was one for the pot, big one for the chef when he was using wine.

There are times though that caution should be used.... drinking while cooking is one thing cooking while drunk is another.... I rarely ruin my food but I do end up making a mess of the kitchen.

What a relief! I thought I was the only one who had drink (wine) while cooking. Seems like it helps me to not worry whether I didn't add enough or added too much. When I sample is only time I should tell that. I do like glass of Port but then that glass is only 1/2 full. Thanks for sharing. Made my day!

I always tell the family, if they catch me talking to myself, I can blame it on the wine.

i know a locally "famous," well known, and highly-regarded chef that cooks at a "famous" restaurant in new orleans.

the dude is an outright party animal and is ALWAYS in trouble with the local authorities over stupid stuff like disturbing the peace, parking violations, noise, etc.

the whole staff at that restaurant is known for their partying.
