Utrecht Men. Get into the Kitchen!

Last updated by

Today, the first Thursday in November is NATIONAL MEN MAKE DINNER DAY.

For better or for worse this is the day for men to take charge in the kitchen and cook for their loved ones.

National Men Make Dinner Day was created by Sandy Sharkey in 2001.

Of course, some men like to cook and do so on a regular basis. To those men, well done!

But for the rest of you, well here’s your chance to get some credit in the bank of love!

This day was created for the men who do not know their way around the kitchen and are not familiar with cooking appliances, as well as for the women in their lives who need a break.

Men need to be aware that there is a list of rules that must be followed, some of which include:

  • The main meal must include a minimum of 4 ingredients and require at least one cooking utensil other than a fork.
  • The man goes shopping for all necessary ingredients.
  • Clean up as you go.
  • Aprons are optional.

Have the men in the house prepare a meal and use #MenMakeDinnerDay to post on social media.
