Cooking is neither love nor sicererity. Cooking is knowledge and skill.

Toyoo Tamamura



The writer says that he admits that love is included in cooking but without knowledge or skill it cannot be called cooking. If you think that you "feed" or "have someone cook," cooking becomes "obligation" or "burden", and also it becomes a cause of a squabble or a vent of dissatisfaction. It is basics that you should make what you want to eat by yourself. He also says that he dare say cooking is greediness. From "Introduction To Kitchen For Men."
