National Men Make Dinner Day is a wonderful celebration of empowerment. It’s time for men to put on an apron and cook a wonderful dinner for loved ones. Today, gender influence in the US is becoming less obvious, but there are still a huge number of men who do not know how to cook and are not eager to learn. The first day of November is a great occasion to motivate your beloved man to start mastering the culinary arts.
The processing of food for consumption began about 500 thousand years ago, but some scientists believe that this practice appeared about 1 million years ago. Half a million years ago it didn’t matter who cooked the food, it’s time to go back to the roots and remember that among our ancestors there were many men who were excellent cooks.
Why we celebrate National Men Make Dinner Day
The ability to cook is not a sign of weakness, not a stigma, but an opportunity to learn something new, to please loved ones. Many mothers and then wives do not encourage boys and then husbands, this leads to many of them feeling helpless and useless in the kitchen. National Men Make Dinner Day encourages you to forget about this stigma and think that cooking for loved ones, friends, and those in need is a good deed. Also, it’s time to rethink gender norms, we used to think that the kitchen is a place for women, but then why are there so many men among the best chefs?
