Quiz: What is your cooking ego?

48w ago

Someone criticises your cooking. How do you feel?

  • Meh, I knew it was average anyway
  • I agree, but I feel like filleting them with a butter knife
  • No one criticises my cooking

Which are you?

  • THE PLAYER: I usually follow the recipe implicitly. If something goes wrong, it wasn't me
  • THE IMPROVISER: I follow it loosely. There's a bit of me in every recipe, and yes, sometimes I fail
  • THE COMPOSER: I'm an artist and an experimenter in the kitchen. I make my own recipes up all the time

Are you inwardly and secretly hard on other people's cooking?

  • I frequently have meals I don't really like
  • It's neither inward nor secret. My name's Gordon Ramsay and my friends know where I stand on their cooking
  • I find food tastes better when someone else cooks it!
  • Well, I can be

You're cooking. How many people are allowed in your kitchen?

  • Me. I said me. Get out.
  • No more than two, and the other knows the risk of getting burned in the back of the head with a hot tray
  • I dunno, as long as I've got my little space to do my thing, I'm all good

Do your friends often call you a good cook?

  • Yes, I'm the go-to friend for all cooking questions
  • After a meal, sure they do
  • Not really

All the guys and gals are over. Someone offers to help in the kitchen. What do you say?

  • "It's all under control, thanks" - regardless of whether it actually is
  • "Sure, do you want to grate the cheese" - give them a job that's not major
  • "Yeah, does this look cooked?"

It's Christmas. What are you cooking for the big family get-together?

  • Everything. Even though I appear frazzled, no one would take that from me
  • The roast meats, normally
  • A dessert
  • The damn cauliflower cheese
  • I'm told which cheese to get for the platter

ONE CHRISTMAS THOUGH...someone does your thing. How do you react?

  • I'm not going
  • Yeah well, they can c**k it up. I'll be asked next year
  • That's fine, I wanted a break anyway
  • I'm scared, because it's the thing I knew how to do

    • I'm not happy when somebody is in the kitchen while I'm cooking and is sitting and not helping 😂 soo annoying

    • I agree with that. They're just clogging up things.

  • The first question is missing the answer option of: the poor soul didn't adequately develop their palate prior to tasting, obviously!

  • Tempered confidence? Maybe midlife crisis like Hammond!
