Can you cook?

I am not French.

Is this an international joke?

Don’t you say “I can boil eggs.”?

If you can boil an egg, you can cook.

Mm…

I can’t cook. :frowning: In the US, I have said that I can’t even boil water.

I can. Badly.

I can take food out of containers and put it on the plates.

I’m the one who cook at home… the one who cook or the one who cooks?..

I have cooked fairly well in the past. I make a mean savoury lentil soup. In my family I am the go-to-guy for big dinners.

Are you free for Christmas?

Or you, Serge, if you are the one who cooks?

I can cook but my wife makes fun of my cooking. She is territorial about her kitchen. I don’t mind since I can do the dishes and clean up while listening to Russian, I doubt if I could do that while cooking.

This reminds me that there are people stating that we should learn by heart all the theory about grammar (sorry I mean cooking), before start using the language (sorry again, I mean the kitchen).

I can cook and I try to do it organicly !

I put in a lot of variegated spices to obfuscate my lamentably egregious cooking

@Oscar:
Here at LingQ we advocate the “heat up the frying pan, chop up some food and spices, stir it round until it smells nice, then eat it” school of communication/cookery :wink:

@yuriy:
that’s a very “British” answer. Do you listen to a lot of British English by any chance?

Helen, when am I invited? I do dishes.

Skybluteapot, in spite of you are English, you have a great sense of cuisine!
(just kidding!)
