As a German proverb states: Love comes through the stomach
I agree that only a good cook can appreciate the quality of cooking. I remember one of my first dinner dates with Daystrom
, who is an excellent cook himself. He sat there, eyes fixed on me and grinning like mad. "What?!" I demanded and he said: "I've never seen someone enjoy their food that much."
Btw, if you ever happen to meet him, try his beef stew, his chicken curry or his gumbo - yummy stuff!
