My awesome bf is a terrible, reluctant cook. He hates the time that shopping, cooking, eating and cleaning up takes out of the day. When he preps food he moves the knife like an (adorable) 5-year old and doesn't know how to properly use salt, fats, or spices (and hence, doesn't). He's said he would like to take a pill each day instead of eating real food, but he also loves french fries, fois gras, and baked asparagus, so I suspect this isn't really true. I love cooking, and he's good at doing the dishes, but I don't want to make every single one of our meals. I want to encourage him 1) to cook 1 edible meal a week and 2) to enjoy occasional casual, low-fuss messing around in the kitchen at the end of the day! Any tips?
