Do you prefer to cook alone or with someone? This recent article on Yum Sugar asked this very question and made me think.
Do you like the help? The extra set of hands? The second palate to taste? The camaraderie?
Or do you prefer to cook alone? Not have anyone in your space. To be able to do what you want. To cut and prep the way you like it?
Me? It depends. On what I'm making. And on who that other person is. My preference? If I'm cooking with someone else in my kitchen, ideally I'd be able to learn from them. Or that they are someone that was ok with doing things my way.
My real preference? Either is ok. And I am willing to share my kitchen, don't get me wrong! But most importantly is that there are people there to eat the food and to enjoy the experience with me.
