Real men cook! In fact, on average men cook 34 meals a month, which works out to roughly eight meals a week. They’re still a little behind young married women, who make 51 meals a month.
Celebrity chef Bobby Flay says he’s seen things change drastically over the years, and now the gap is closing.
“Ten to 15 years ago there was a sort of stigma against guys really liking cooking," he said. Now, he says about half of his viewers are men. He said men have told him, "I used to watch ESPN exclusively, but now I watch you on the Food Network. Don't tell my wife."
With all the men in the kitchen, Bobby shared with TODAY his favorite manly kitchen gadgets.
