About this deal

The novelist Hanya Yanagihara recently said that she “deliberately never learned” to cook as a teenager for fear of being trapped in the domestic sphere; I suspect my own historical resistance was similar. You might uncover a false assumption – for example, that you don’t deserve to enjoy food, that any time not spent working is wasted, or that cooking is anti-intellectual or even women’s work. Self-help guru and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss surveyed more than 100,000 of his (mostly male) Facebook fans to discover what turned them off cooking and found an array of reasons: too many ingredients or tools, intimidating skills, different dishes finishing at different times, standing at the stove, food waste. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Iyer, who describes herself as “not really a leftovers gal”, looks for ways to make them into a different meal – for instance, by turning odds and ends into a rissole.

Part of the reason I have been able to go so long without knowing how to cook is that for several years I lived with a friend who enjoyed taking charge in the kitchen. According to a 2014 YouGov survey of 10,000 Britons, one of the largest ever conducted about food, 10% of us cannot cook a thing – equating to 5 million people. For example: it’s important that aubergines are “very finely” sliced, but you can usually fudge onions – and always save the pasta water. So if someone else handles the cooking in your household, ask them to take a week or two off, for the sake of your self-development.

They then said which one they preferred (tactics dictated every person said a different plate so it was a draw) and if they both went for the same one than that chef won. The joke however was on the friends of the cooks who then had to eat the food that had been lovingly prepared for them.

Combined with a few cookbooks, I can now put my phone in another room as I cook, and meals hardly ever get burned.The test, he says, should be: “How badly can you mangle the recipe and still get something incredible? Comment: The spine or cover may be slightly worn but the book is otherwise in good condition and will provide thought provoking read! Read all Two people, one of whom can't cook and one of whom won't cook were nominated to appear on the show and under the instruction of a celebrity/world class chef prepare and cook a meal.
