iVillage: What His Cooking Style Says About His Personality

10 of 11

The Exotic Explorer

This chef likes to go off the beaten track. “Ethnic foods offer intrigue, mysterious flavors, and are often very healthful,” says Castrigno. “These people are open-minded and see the world as one big community.” What better way to connect with another culture than through its food? The chef will likely follow a recipe and may also interpret a dish they had in a restaurant with what they have on hand. They’re not afraid to experiment, grow and learn. This is a person who is willing to step outside of his comfort zone, palate and otherwise.

Spice Things Up: Things can get cooking fast with your chef -- literally. For example, Asian cuisines can cook quickly, so be prepared to get a move on it when your chef asks for help. Grouping ingredients by the stage in which they are added is very useful. Always be ready for spontaneity, whether it’s the latest flick or a last minute weekend away. In this case, the journey is definitely just as important as the destination.

“This meal will be memorable and possibly even a new journey into foreign territory for you,” says Castrigno. “There will be lots of different flavors even if there are only a few dishes…and get ready for some spice, on the dinner table and in this relationship.”
