  1. They said,women should know how to cook especially when they will be a married woman someday. I do agree but there are times that I don’t like to cook. But hey,even if i’m like that if it’s for my husband I’ll do sure to cook delicious food for him. Learning how to cook from this professional chef’s will sure be great.
