I would find your arrangement very uncomfortable. It sounds like you are doing an "Anything You can do, I can Do Better" dance, and I don't see how that can be good for the relationship.
I'm a cooking teacher, so I'm accustomed to leading in the kitchen. However when someone wants to cook for me, I'm happy to take the viewer's role and let them do it!
My favorite person to cook for is a good cook, but usually I cook and he does the dishes.
