Could it be because you were sitting at your desk wearing a "Kiss the Cook" apron and were salting and peppering your keyboard? I have a feeling that a lot of people would never really be able to pick out the "cooking type" just on looks, or even personality. As far as I know we all look just like "normal" people!

Well obviously the cooking type looks like the best looking, coolest of the bunch. Everyone knows that.

Good question, Rom. What exactly is a cooking type anyway?

Of course, we had the sterotypical guy with the apron and chef's toque standing over the charcoal grill in the '50s. And, there's the "mom" type with her apron and stew pot. There are many others and none of them are what could be described as a "cooking type."

Perhaps the person who posed the question was envious of the fact that you could sustain yourself and not resort to fast food and pre-packaged foods in the grocery store.

Just enjoy your skills and enjoy his/her curiosity.

AND don't forget that good cooks are always evolving, too---my cousins used to fling my sandwiches and meatloaf out the window (even Queenie the Boston terrier ran away from my culinary attempts) when I babysat them as a teenager but they don't fling my food out anymore---when I say that I'm going to cook I have all the help in the world. :) I think that Julia Child (and I would NEVER compare myself to her) said that she wasn't much of a cook when she was younger and look what she evolved into. jso hang in there!!

You are so right, expat. Julia had no interest and had no reason to cook until she was nearly 40-years-old. She was quite wealthy and had everything done for her. When she met Paul Child, who was a real foodie, she became determined to win him. She threw herself into cooking and, as they say, the rest is history.

By the way, my signature says everything I said in one sentence.
