Cooking Style Revelations

I just read an interesting article (in French) about what your cooking style says about you.

Apparently, if you always cook the same dishes, you tend to be more traditional and conservative, perhaps even a little wary of change. On the other hand, if you are always experimenting and trying out new recipes you are more open to newness and are less afraid of failure. People who make sure the presentation of their food is appealing tend to be perfectionists, while those who clean up straight away are more control freaks.

All a little simplistic, but I can definitely see myself in some of it: When I am feeling adventurous and open to life, I prefer trying out new recipes, and I tend to stick to what I know when I am feeling tired or not very daring. Also, I love cooking, but I don’t like planning menus or recipes. I prefer to buy a bunch of stuff and figure out what to make with it later. I guess this means I don’t like being told what to do, or having to really commit to things and prefer to just improvise or wing things!

What about you, what does your cooking style say about you?

    Oh that’s interesting. My control freakiness comes out even in my cooking style I see!

    Hi Carlo! Thanks for the support :)
    Not sure what the average time taken means, perhaps simply how much importance you place on food preparation? I know I try to make quite simple and healthy meals and that often doesn’t take too long…

    Very interesting. What about the average time taken to prepare a meal? Does it say something?

    Please continue blogging!
