Cooking to Hook Up – a pre-review

Written By: Gary on October 9, 2004 2 Comments

So stumbling around the ‘net Misty was talking about what kind of girl she was (and so were a few other sites) and as a result I found info on a book for guys on cooking for more effective dating (called Cooking to Hook Up), what really caught my eye (and maybe that was the point) was the different archetypes that they break the women up into. I didn’t just get this from reviews, I found their site (and they is/are a divorced couple who still seem to get along. For a short quiz as part of marketing for a cookbook this has grown into a pretty busy meme.

Cooking to Hook Up: The Bachelor's Date-Night Cookbook (Cookbooks) Drew Campbell, Ann Marie Michaels

I compiled the information on some of the ones I’ve dated most often below (well, these are the ones I found the funniest). They’ve got information on each of the types and artist’s renditions (below). You may want to view the individual entry to see the table better.

From Cooking To Hook Up – The Bachelor’s Date-Night Cookbook

an ACADEMIC GIRL who can kick your ass in Scrabble…
in Latin
a GRANOLA GIRL who has solar panels on her roof and
Birkenstocks on her feet?
an INDIE GIRL who collects Japanese candy wrappers
and lawn gnomes?
a PROGRESSIVE GIRL who wants an SUV, but feels
bad about it?
She drives: a Volvo, a Saab, or a Toyota. a VW bus, a bicycle, or an electric car, or uses
public transportation.
a classic car, a VW beetle, a Mini Cooper, or a Vespa scooter. a small SUV but really wishes it got better mileage;
once she can get a good hybrid, she will.
She can talk for more than ten minutes
her thesis. hemp. obscure pop culture. just about anything.
She begins her sentences with: “Noam Chomsky says …” “Ralph Nader says …” “It’s like that Simpsons episode . . .” “Susan Sarandon says…”
She’d never: read Cosmo. vote Republican. drive a mini-van. pass up the chance for a new experience.
She owns any of the following: an Oxford English Dictionary, any book written in a
“dead” language (Greek, Latin, Aramaic, etc.), a lifetime
membership to Mensa.
a smudge stick, a tongue scraper, a compost bin, Dr.
Bronner’s soap (bulk size).
TiVo, a mini-DV camera, an iPod, a pottery wheel, a serger, or a lava lamp. a water filter, a tabletop fountain, an acre of rain
forest, a mutt from the pound.

    So I fall somewhere in the midst of them all except Granola Girl. Can’t relate there.
    I drive a Honda, I can talk for 10 minutes about anything, I quote The Simpson’s on occaision, I would never read Cosmo, drive a minivan or pass up the chance to have a new experience(with some exceptions), I probably would never vote Republican but never is a very long time and I reserve the right to vote for the person not the party, I own 3 lava lamps, lots of “dead books” and a table top water fall. So I guess the categories listed are pretty narrow. Books on relationships are rarely, if ever, any use, (except perhaps as door stops).
    Learning to cook, however, is a good and useful thing. Learn to cook what you love to eat, do it with a passion and she will come… or you’ll have a really good meal alone. Either way you win.
    Thanks for this temporary diversion from my day.

    That’s too funny. Also, like the pigeon holes women try to put men into, far too narrow. Look at me: I own an Oxford English Dictionary, books written in a
