FrenchNewlyWed:  Learn to cook? Honey, you have a CHEF for a husband!! Cook together! Ask him to show you some recipes! He might enjoy seeing you so impressed by his chopping techniques and what not.

My FI and I cook together all the time!

My nana is very old school Mexican and made all the girls be in the kitchen at the age of five. The thing that she always taught us if your pollo tastes good but looks ugly put it in a burrito he will never know! So, just focus on the taste and the presentation will come in time

If FI was a chef I would make sure there were fresh croissants in my house every single day!!

Lol yes, have him make you his sous chef! Are you ever in the kitchen with him when he cooks? Maybe the next few times he makes dinner, he could explain each step that he’s doing and you could learn that way, or have you cook and he walks you through it?

sumshine.dawn:  This made me laugh soooo hard.  I had a similar Nana.  Only she was Scottish.  So her thoughts on the matter were usually “make the pre-dinner drinks stronger, no one will care what it looks like by the time they sit for dinner!” 

To the OP, can you take a class?  Practice with youtube videos?

I would love to learn from a French chef, but I don’t know how much I would like to learn form my husband.  Love him dearly, but we don’t always do that well together at the same task.  More often than not, I leave the room when he is doing something just because he doesn’t like suggestions as to how he does things. I go work on something else myself and only will help him if he asks.

If you think you want to learn from him, I would start slowly, once a week for a month to see how you work together first.  It is not always easy taking critisim from someone you are close to, and its isn’t always easy critizing someone you are close to.  If you work together well, ramp it up.  If you don’t, I suggest taking cooking classes.
