Of what use is the woman if she doesn’t know how to cook? In those days, parents especially mothers took it as responsibility to teach their girl child how to cook.
Nowadays, this new generation mothers fail in that responsibility. Majority of mothers don’t even want their daughters to do house chores let alone asking them to cook. All the cooking are done by the house maids.
For me, I can’t marry a lady that doesn’t know how to cook.
