Deep questions of personal identity are on the table today.

So what kind of cook are you? From the NY Times’ Tara Parker-Hope we have these five categories:

a) Giving: Friendly, well-liked and enthusiastic, giving cooks seldom experiment, love baking and like to serve tried-and-true family favorites, although that sometimes means serving less healthful foods.

b) Methodical:
Talented cooks who rely heavily on recipes. The methodical cook has refined tastes and manners. Their creations always look exactly like the picture in the cookbook.

c) Healthy: Optimistic, book-loving, nature enthusiasts, healthy cooks experiment with fish, fresh produce and herbs. Health comes first, even if it means sometimes sacrificing taste.

d) Competitive: The Iron Chef of the neighborhood, competitive cooks have dominant personalities and are intense perfectionists who love to impress their guests.

e) Innovative: Creative and trend-setting, innovative cooks seldom use recipes and like to experiment with ingredients, cuisine styles and cooking methods.

These are not exactly precise analytic categories, but I suppose they tell us something. So take the quiz.

As for me, I would have said, prior to taking the quiz, that I am methodical. But the quiz reveals that I am more innovative and competitive.

Self-knowledge is hard.
