Why I will NOT COOK

The name of my blog is a bit “hostile” but that is not my intention. It actually came about one day when I was on the phone with one of my friends and she was lamenting about the expectations that men, specifically African men, have on their African women--to cook.

[Column: I Will NOT COOK]

My name is Chichi Nwoko.

I am the self-proclaimed relationship expert on African Diaspora relationships. See as an Irish-born Nigerian living in America, dating and relationships come with their own sets of issues and challenges; so who better to be the expert on them than myself.

After reading my blogs, I promise you too will agree that I am indeed an expert. I decided to start this blog because I have a lot to say. Soon, “I will NOT COOK” will turn into a nice fancy website with all the bells and whistles, but until then, well, it is what it is.

I will also be writing a regular column "I will NOT COOK," on www.blackstarnews.com

Let me start by saying that “I will NOT COOK” is not the same as “I do not know how to cook.”

I actually enjoy cooking. For me it is like an experiment somedays and other days it is like an art form. Furthermore, I believe, every woman, as a matter of fact every human being should know how to prepare a meal to feed themselves.

Men, yes that includes you too.

Okay. The name of my blog is a bit “hostile” but that is not my intention. It actually came about one day when I was on the phone with one of my friends and she was lamenting about the expectations that men, specifically African men, have on their African women--to cook.

I had heard similar frustrations echoed by a lot of my other female friends; both the married and the unmarried.

This is going to be fun and real. I invite you to add your comments and questions on www.iwillnotcook.blogspot.com

Also tell a friend, to tell a friend, to tell a friend.
