    Chef Ramsay says women can't cook

    I read on sympatico a few days ago, that Chef Ramsay thinks women can't cook. He says that women only buy done meals and that only men take time to cook well. I really dissagree with him...Women can cook too!

    I found this on the web:

    AT home, despite being a devoted husband to teacher-turned-TV presenter, Tana, and children, Megan, seven, twins Jack and Holly, five, and three-year-old Matilda, he's equally as uncompromising when it comes to his craft.

    "Tana's not allowed in my kitchen," he says. "It's a lifelong ban. But she's got her own.

    "Wouldn't you do the same? You've got his and her bathrooms. You know what men are like, when they shave they don't clean the plug hole out. It's the same with me. I don't want her in my kitchen."

    Read back in this thread a bit. The consensus is that he doesn't mean all women. He means a certain group of them. He's not talking about innate ability either--he's talking about the reality of British young-urban-professional types, although to be fair it is certainly has to also be true to the males of that type too, as well as the Americans of the same ilk.

    ..so I was pleasantly surprised that so many posters are defending instead of taking offense to Ramsey's comments.
    I like Ramsay, so..I defend him as well.

    Out of curiosity, am I the only one who thinks this may be some sort of foreshadowing to a woman winning the show?
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    No. The comment was made in October of 2005 about British women. If it turns out that a woman will win this season, it's only extreme irony.

    I know for a fact that some women just do not have the skill required to cook decently, my mother being one of them. Whenever she makes a meal, she takes all the ingredients, throws it in a pot with boiling water and lets it cook for an hour or two.... Everything she cooks tastes the same and is one piled splatter of gobbly-gook; not my idea of a decent meal.

    That's the reason I took up cooking.
