Marriage is a great experience, an exhilarating one. It takes you through the highs and lows of life. Now being married to a working man, let’s day a regular Joe or a blue collar is a wonderful experience but if you’re married to a person who is in a different profession like sports, arts, culinary etc., then that is a different experience. Suppose you want to get married and let’s say you’re dating a chef, every one of your friends might say, oh that’s great! You must be getting free food. But that is not the only reason you should get married to a chef, I can give you a million more reasons as to why should you get hitched to a man who cooks for a living. Of course, women find men who can cook to be utterly sexy and if you’re getting married to one, hey you’re lucky! Who doesn’t dream of being married to a man who works well with his hands, is creative and talented, isn’t afraid to get down and dirty although they may have high demanding and stressful jobs, but hey it’s all worthwhile at the end of the day, so here are a few reasons why you should take the plunge with a chef.
10. They are creative
Chefs are just like artists, creating and inventing new things; they’ll rack their brains over a particular food and constantly try to come up with new ideas and recipes. You’ll never find a chef making the same old dreary food day in and day out or bring out the same recipes every day. No, a good chef will always make use of his culinary knowledge and come up with delicious recipes and this is what attracts so many people to the culinary world, the creativity. Wouldn’t you love to be surprised with a different order of food every day? Cooking is a skill, a craft and a chef is what makes food engaging and enjoyable. Isn’t it sexy to see a man flip an egg omelet with one hand or chop away within seconds?
9. They are Talented
Like I said before, a chef has that ability to transform the most boring and bland food into something great, if they’re short on some cooking ingredients in the kitchen, they don’t give up, rather they see it as a challenge to come up with something new. This is what makes a chef talented and innovative. Who doesn’t love a man who can make food into art and pleasing to the eye? They are passionate about their food and they go to great lengths to achieve that perfect dish on the plate. A talented chef will always think outside the box and loves the whole process of selecting food, spices and creating new menus.It’s the talent that is attractive.
8. You eat well
Yup, if you’re dating a chef you get to eat all the wonderful dishes, all the new recipes and mouthwatering desserts. Your chef hubby will introduce you to some weird foods too and if you’re a picky eater, you’re in for a ride. By the time you’re marrying a chef, you won’t be a picky eater, I can guarantee you that. You’ll get to see and taste food in a whole different way. It’ll definitely be a food adventure with all the exotic recipes and new ingredients. Chefs experiment with weird cuisines from around the world so you’ll get to relish them, but don’t always expect them to serve you up with a four course meal. But one thing is for sure that you’ll eat like a king or a queen, just don’t be afraid of all the weight that comes along.
7. Access to the best Restaurants
Yes, it’s true that chefs don’t like cooking at home that much but they’ll make sure to take you out to some of the best restaurants to take a breather from their own cooking jobs. You’ll get to meet foodie’s, food critics, and get inside new and trendy restaurants which otherwise might be a tedious task, given all the pre booked reservations. But don’t always expect to get free food all the time just because you’re the chef’s girlfriend or boyfriend. Even if you get free food, make sure you do it the right way and not overstepping your boundaries. Chefs love to try out all the new food available in different restaurants so tag along and you’ll have the best experience visiting, fine dining and tasting international delicacies in amazing and impressive restaurants.
6. They clean up well
If a chef is working for a 12 hour shift, they expect their kitchens to be spotless and not messy. If they work hard, they play hard too. If you’re chef is cooking you food at home, he’ll make sure the whole dining place is clean and spotless. Your food will never go to waste, because they will always come up with new ways to make your leftovers more palatable. Chefs are particular about cleanliness so one thing is for sure, if you’re cooking in a messy and filthy kitchen, he’ll first make it clean and presentable .
5. They are rich
I don’t mean to sound vain or shallow but yes, they’re rich; they work in the biggest restaurants and cooks meals for the wealthiest people. If a chef is a well-known one, then yes, he is going to be rich. A ‘Chef’ is a prestigious title and a very secure career. Being a chef is a great career option and pays off well in the end. Although the whole process of becoming a well-known chef is hard, yes, very hard, going to culinary school and starting at the bottom, but if they make it, they get salaries in six figures, in addition to other benefits, which may also mean that he or she will probably end up being a celebrity chef.
4. You learn more about food
If you’re chef hubby or boyfriend tells you to taste a certain food, wouldn’t you do it? Everyone else might think you’re gullible but that is what makes it so great. Eating food every day, we forget to experience it, let our taste buds enjoy it; we just wolf it down and get it over with. But if you’re with a chef, food wont’ be the same anymore. You’ll enjoy it, you’ll learn about food, how it is cooked, what ingredients go on in certain dishes, you’ll learn how chefs make some of the weirdest dishes more presentable and eatable to people. They also take everyday food and turn it into something beautiful, more delectable. Like I said, it will be a thrilling experience.
3. They are hard working
Chefs are hard workers, their jobs are hard and grueling. They work for weeks and get called in the middle of the night. But they will make it up to you, they may just surprise you with a great new dish and it’ll just be like the first time. You’ll never be bored. Holidays will never be the same because they will see to it that the best food is available. Since most chefs work on weekends or in the evening, be prepared for mid-day or mid-week dates. They are problem solvers and they take charge to avoid any tragedy in the kitchen.
2. They change the world
Chefs are food providers; they always make sure that no one goes hungry. They have invented some of the best known dishes and recipes. All the best chefs like Gordon Ramsey, Nigella Lawson , Anthony Bouirdain brought out cooks books which had recipes we could easily make .Who would’ve thought of eggs benedict or porpoise porridge or ginger bread or crème brulee or beef wellington ?Julia Child brought french cuisine to the american public, Mario Batali prepared authentic Italian cuisine, Cat Cora founded the Chefs for Humanity, the list goes on. It’s in our instinct to be drawn towards a man who provides for us , nourishes us. A great chef lives and breathes his craft, his food and being one is not easy. If you’re not as passionate about food as him, then forget it. It just won’t work.
1. They travel the world
Chefs get invited all the time to food events and food conventions. They travel to different culinary events like a food convention in Paris or a food festival in Milan .So go along, you’ll get many travel opportunities to see the world and its cuisine.
