Very few Nigerian men can cook a really nice and tasty meal. . .

While most Nigerian men wait on their wives to cook and prepare their meals.

Cause they think men are not meant to cook, cooking should be for their wives.

The idea is ridiculous either way!

Which kain question be dis? I am yet to see a woman that cooks better than me .I cook better than my gf and she's an exceptional cook from Akwa ibom.I am Efik and i started out boiling eggs at the age of eight.By ten, i was boiling beans,rice and yam.By 12, i could grind,slice and dice ingredients for soup/stews and so on. . .by 15, i knew it all and not one person can tell me nada.I still experiment though. . .you know, look up meals online from other countries.I feel comfy eating food that i prepared myself than anyone else's so you will definitely not catch me dead eating in Tastee fried chicken!

Yeah I wish my hubby coudl cook. I mean I love cooking but I cant trust him to boil one pot of rice cos the pots get destroyed to th point where they have to be binned. I actually will not let him into the kitchen (not that he ever tries to enter it!) He cannot even make one pack of indomiewithout overcooking them to be like slop. VERY ANNOYING. So fair play to you guys who do like cooking. It can be interesting. Its better that constantly planking your Bottom in front of the TV wathing footballand guzzling beer. Thats why my hubbys colesterol is ver high now.

Wen this girl cook like this; ewe e! de thing dey sweet. But she travel go Naija one December. B4 she come back, a don begin do her roommate. When she come back from Naija, the silly roommate tell her say I do her. So, she kick both of us out. Na she get house. Me a no wory. I get my own house.

Tank God she kicked me out because a for become fat. That be the only woman wey I don meet for America wey sabi cook. The others, na yeye. American girls, for dorty. The only thing them sabi make, na reservation!

I enjoy cooking for my girls. One day, this girl wey be me an my mama good friend come visit. My mama come back; come catch me de cook scramble eggs and dodo for this girl. She scold me in front of the girl; serious!! She tell me, she never wone see me cook for anyone woman againin her house. If the girl hungry; make she cook her own food. She so-gba-si-rice me! A never see my mama vex like that. Till today, the girl keep me for arms distance an she no gree talk to my mama again. The woman wey use to be her best friend.

Wating poor man go do! I had to let her go; even wen I don spend beter money on her. And a never get her thing yet.

Me, afit cook like mother fucker. But, the number of pots wey I don burn; you no fit count am. No be lie; one week no fit pass wey a nogo burn pot. Football season, forget it. A fit burn the hole house.

But to cook, a sabi cook better. As long as ano burn de pot; a dey kampe! All dis ppl way say man no fit cook. for doty. Not for me, not for my boys; a fit cook like five star hotel chef. How I learn; I just watch my mama. A no-no weda my papa fit cook, but wen he come back from work, an him food no dey for table. Wahala: the whole house go see pepe.

My sisters, for where. Them no even sabi boil water. If you want die, eat my sisters dem food. A go visit one of my sisters. Her husband say, him lucky O! “Him get wife wey sabi cook. I look this yeye man like, this one don crace. A no fit even give my dog that kind food. A no say na my sister toto dey shack am. My sister no saby cook poo.

I relate with you. If a no burn the pot; a de better!

I've always been a dab hand at cooking - so never had to rely on a woman to eat good food, as opposed to some single guys that either live on fast food, or badly-prepared home cooking.

yes of course,forasmuch you are willing to learn and give your time.personally i was taught to prepare diff delicases by my mum.however i can stand to tell nairalanders that i can cook series of dishes coutesy of my mum.and if it happens that you want to lean,try and confide in either your mum,girlfriend,sister or consult a caterer and pay a token.

Unless that Nigerian guy went to a skool, and was thot how to cook, he can't cook! You might argue but not all women go to skools, and yet they whip up stuff just from watching mum. Reason is, some things come naturally to some sexes, and cooking does not come naturally to guys. I'm sure it's an accomplishment for a guy to look at a picture of cooked rice and have his version look similar, lets not even go to whether it tastes as it shud. There are the odd exceptions, but the norm is that most can't and aren't bothered to learn how to cook.

I knew a guy who used to brag that he could cook. I thot,'gr8'. Goodness me!  what this guy did to veggies should be a crime.  All nutrients gone!!! I had to eat something so he wouldn't feel bad, but i couldn't punish my tummy when he suggested i take more.
