After drooling over his pictures on Facebook for a while, I decided to settle down for a chit-chat with him. He tells us all about how he learnt to cook, his woman’s reaction to his constant cooking and the lovely reward he got for making dinner for a family. Enjoy!
At what age did you begin cooking?

I have had a family here invite me over to come and make dinner for them at home. I went there that evening and made them a three course meal and served them. I made rice and Chicken Stew and I also made Eru. For dessert, I made them strawberries and yogurt and served it in cups I made out of apples. It was a really good experience. I felt like some high-class chef and I enjoyed doing it because the wife had a big and well-equipped kitchen. I was excited in her kitchen like a kid in a candy store. When it was time for me to leave, the husband compensated me with $250. My jaws dropped because I wasn’t even expecting anything. The following day, he sent me a picture of his wife eating the Eru from the pot captioned, “this is how you know the chef did a good job”. I was so excited.
How does your woman feel about you doing a lot of cooking?
I take a picture everyday. I choose a color every week and take pictures of things pertaining to that color. i have had a picture of mine featured on explore on Flickr. That made me so excited and boosted my passion for taking pictures. I did not do professional photography, neither did i go to school for it. I am just good with my hands and creativity I guess.
Men, wona don hear? Cook for your woman so she will just get home, take a shower and eat.
Hope you enjoyed reading this interview as much as I enjoyed conducting it.
Thank you for speaking with me, Lapiro! May your culinary skills take you to places you have never dreamed of.
Now over to you, readers. Is there a man in your life that cooks? What’s your perception about men that can cook?
