I'm a decent cook, but I hate cooking for one.

Here you go, from this summer: picked the strawberries and rhubarb from my garden to make tarts, with a banana/coconut shell.

Cooking is a valuable skill for life. And, while I don't have a lot of personal experience to back this up, I have it on good authority that lady friends quite appreciate somebody who can cook.

That all said, cooking is something I thoroughly enjoy, so maybe its a case of "that's easy for you to say." Even when it doesn't come out, there's something to learn from the experience. Today I made the mistake of attempting to slow roast a hunk of sirloin that looked like it might rise above the traditional limitations (i.e. toughness) of the cut. It didnt. It came out as a perfectly cooked, pink-to-the-edges and juicy lump of shoe leather. I find that most people are willing to forgive the occasional flop so long as you clearly made an effort, and it might even give you something to remember and talk about.

And if you happen to be with somebody who holds an occasional culinary mistake against you, I'd say that's a strong indication to ditch that person posthaste.

Growing up, I always loved watching cooking shows on PBS and love reading about the techniques and science behind cooking and baking.  I can cook and bake decently and find it is a valuable life skill for feeding myself economically so I don't end up eating out excessively.

Cooking a meal for a date has a lot of upside.

 

I can't think of too many negatives, even if you burn the meal you create sympathy.  

Potentially a cheap date, and less expensive than a restaurant, also fewer awkward moments.  

You meet the date on your turf, it's your music, and you can create the mood.  

 

Food poisoning would be bad, but in the end a mutual suffering would give you a shared experience.

 

Given all the above I should have cooked more, go cook guys :D

I don't usually eat steak at home, I'd rather go to a restaurant and order one made by someone who knows how to cook one!   LOL!
