My man can cook! Better yet, he likes what I set in front of him, so I consider it a real compliment when he does that "mmmm mmhmm" thing and nods at me while we eat. We're both pretty good about letting the other just do their thing in the kitchen. I don't feel a need to hover or correct or offer advice. He's an adult and perfectly capable. =)

me & jake cook together quite well. it's kinda odd, with my apartment kitchen & nary enough room fer 1 & the 2 of us squeezed in there together without bickering over space allotted.
we work well together - he washes didhes, i put them away, then we cook dinners together. we don't speak too often while we cook except to say 'pass me the salt, babe?' or something similar.
then we dine on our efforts.

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.
