Cooking alone can be a wonderful experience—but cooking with others can be just as gratifying. In fact, we believe that it can be an incredibly bonding experience, one centered around love, respect, and appreciation. Here are three reasons why we believe that cooking with people brings you together.

Spending Time Together

It’s obvious to say, but that’s what makes it our top reason. The more you cook with someone, the more time you’re spending with them. With cooking as your subtle medium, you’re now getting to know each other in a multitude of ways.

Sharing of Positivity

There’s a tremendous amount of positive sensations that take place when you cook. There’s the beautiful smell, there’s the wonderful crackling of the frying pan that you can hear, there are the stunning visuals, and best of all: the delicious taste. As you proceed to share all of these positive feelings with the person you’re cooking with, you’ll associate this person will feelings of positivity in general.

Giving to People

If you two are cooking for a larger group of people, you’ll be able to bond over a sense of giving. There’s an amazing feeling you get when you make food for other people—and now you’ll get to share that together as well.
