According to the New York Post, more men in Manhattan are cooking  at home. The story cites the Food Network , the recession, and a desire to impress females  as reasons why more guys are putting on aprons and manning the stove. Some males even consider it a talent along the likes of being well-traveled or speaking two languages. While my dad has always been the head chef in my family, I would have to agree with the article. My older brother has recently developed an interest in cooking and jumps at the chance to help me in the kitchen! How about you?
