What question do you hate to be asked and why?
Do have to pick one? Okay, fine. I will choose.
Here is the one question I most hate to be asked: “Your husband must love being married to you, do you cook gourmet meals every night?”
This bugs me for a number of reasons. First, just because I teach Culinary Arts does NOT mean that I love to cook. I LIKE to cook, but it is not my passion. Also, after cooking all day at work the very last thing that I want to do is cook when I get home. Gourmet cooking is very expensive. Last time I checked, I worked on a teacher’s salary. Believe me that is NOT going to put a gourmet meal on the table every night.
The second reason that this bugs me is because it implies that my husband married me because I can cook. News flash: my husband is a better cook than I am. He’s Italian. He learned to cook in a traditional Italian household. The man has skill. And truly, he does most of the cooking.
The third reason I hate this question is because I am a mother to a five year old. If I put a gourmet meal in front of him he would just stare at it. Nope, most of the time we are eating kid-friendly food.
Just because I teach culinary arts does not mean I am a full time culinarian, so please stop treating me like one. Okay? Thanks.
