Eat my heart » Blog Archive » Wanted: A Cock That Cooks.
 

Sonya Biddle grew up working in a family restaurant. Cooking, serving, and cleaning up after customers was a daily grind. During this time,  she had one romantic fantasy: to meet and fall in love with a man who did all the cooking and cleaning. And she did. His name is Alan and they have a beautiful farm in the Quebec countryside which I had the chance to visit again this weekend.

 

Even better, the farm was crawling with cocks. Roosters, I mean. Apparently her henhouse has more cock then hen (if only Montreal had this problem, here it’s the opposite–too many hot chicks.) And judging from the delicious eggs we had Sunday morning,  Sonya’s hens are getting some serious action.

This cock doesn't cook, but he makes the hen happy, just like the FC, pedaling me around Sonya's catfish pond with his friend Gerardo.

 

Sonya’s avowed dislike for cooking, though surprising coming from someone living on a farm with a bountiful vegetable garden, reminded me that culinary dynamics vary from couple to couple.  My F.C. doesn’t cook at all (except crepes) and maybe that’s why I like him so much. We compliment each other. By contrast, the ex-A.C. enjoyed cooking too much, and it would sometimes irk me how he took over at dinner parties, showing off his fresh tomatoe gazpacho or herb roasted chicken. I also dated a Russian Cock who made the most amazing avocado strawberry salad. Simple and delectable, the salad impressed, not the stud cooking it.  But for women like Sonya, this would have been a total turn on…

 

So who are these cocks that cook? What are they like?  How do they connect food with love? We’ll soon find out, as I plan on introducing a new rotating guest column, Cooking For Chick, where boy-gourmands share their very own food romancing stories.

 

Stay tuned. (Interested guy gourmands feel free to submit something.)

My friend Brent doesn't cook, but man, can he chop. To me, that's sexy.

Broccoli and Sun-Dried Tomato Frittata

Brocolli and sun-dried tomatoes taste amazing together, especially with eggs. I first discovered the winning combination at a Toronto cafe on Queen West. They were the house scramble, and I’ve reproduced it many times since. But this weekend my G.C.F. Peter  (another cock who cooks) opted to try the combination Spanish Style, in a frittata, which worked well for our group, since we were six people and scrambled eggs for that many people can get messy-looking. Here’s Peter’s recipe.

 

Ingredients

 

1 TBSP butter
13 eggs
1/2 cup Milk (Peter likes to use Perrier for a lighter fritta)
Dry spices dill, ground chili or flakes a little bit of oregano.
1/4 sundried tomatoes chopped
1 1/2 cups broccoli florets chopped
1/2 Onion (yellow)
Your choice of cheese (Peter used chevre, but the Toronto cafe used asiago.)
Fresh ground pepper.

 

Directions

 

1. Turn on broiler oven
2. Start with butter in a 2” deep oven proof pan on stove top
3. Add dry spices onion, broc and sun-dried tomatoes Fry for 5-8 minutes (enough for onon and broc to soften)
4. Add egg/milk/perrier mixture
5. Let set on stovetop over medium heat then cover for 5-8 minutes.
6. Add cheeses on top and place pan middle shelf in oven and broil ‘till golden
7. Salt to taste and serve right in the pan with hot sauce or tobasco on the side.

    This hen is very happy providing eggs for my cock to fry up. Frankly I’m a chicken when it comes to cooking..terror stricken really and in order to survive and have enough strength to reproduce I had to cry fowl and find a cock who cooks. Granted they’re a rare breed – but they’re rarely quacks. Its been my experience that a cock who cooks is pleasing to the palate as well to the eye.
