I'm sure most if not all of you know some very good reasons why you should at least have a basic ability to cook. For one thing, we all have to eat in order for our bodies to function properly.
Second, eating home-cooked meals is generally less expensive than dining out, take-out/delivery and even the self-prepared processed foods; bonus points if you can take advantage of supermarket sales. Thirdly, eating home-cooked meals can be healthier than dining out, take-out/delivery and even the self-prepared processed foods; I say "can be healthier" because we can control the ingredients being used in what we cook to create leaner yet still flavourful meals, though some may still choose otherwise.
There's also another good reason to learn to cook: to bring joy to other people's lives. Be the others family, friends or a significant other, those who are true to you will respect and appreciate your efforts to satisfy their appetites. It isn't by all means the be-all and end-all to show your appreciation, friendship, affection or love to the person for whom you're cooking, but, considering how friendship, kinship and love are multi-faceted, it never hurts to have this handy skill set in your back pocket.
