Happy Father’s Day!
Dads have come a long way in the last two generations. Where in the 1950′s, most men were no more than weekend dads, today it is generally expected of males to share the burden of homemaking and rearing the young.
Perhaps we have not reached parity yet, but in many families children are growing not necessarily knowing that mommy does laundry and daddy mows the lawn exclusively. One zone in the house where a bias is still evident though, is the kitchen. Otherwise we would see many more grocery/food commercials aimed at men.
The funny thing is that if you take a look at lists of of the world’s top chefs, they are inhabited by more men than women. Obviously testosterone is not an impediment to fixing dinner for a family of four. So let’s see more fathers in the kitchen please.
If you are a dad and like to cook, share your story in the comments below.
