iVillage: What His Cooking Style Says About His Personality

7 of 11

The Nurturer

We’re talking comfort food here. These chefs are all about taking care of their guests. “There will be an incredible amount of love poured into this meal,” says Castrigno. “Dishes will often be prepared from memory, or using a recipe written on a piece of paper that is many years old.” While the ingredients used may not be as health-conscious as today’s consumer trends, they’ll probably make you feel as if you’ve been hugged.'

Spice Things Up: You may lend a hand by assembling ingredients and keeping the sink clear, but when it comes to the cooking don’t get too involved. Remember, this chef wants to nurture and preparing the meal for you is a big part of that. Be careful not to take that pleasure away. Be sure and tell them how nice it is to have them cook for you. They can’t hear it enough. The more you soak up the experience, the more the nurturer will ladle it on.

“Allow the tastes and smells to carry you back to happy times,” says Castrigno. “These two senses are big memory triggers.” It may not be the most nutritious meal, but it will be very enjoyable. Plan for some serious cuddle time afterward.
