While I agree that's bullshit there is a grain (pardon the pun) of truth to it. One does have to be more precise about ratios when baking than when cooking. Most cooks with a little experience can pretty much eyeball all of their measurements, few bakers can.

Well, cooking is more science too. 99.99% of cooking is science, .01% is art/inspiration/let's try this and see how it works.

Tried and true methods for satisfying results > strawberry, chocolate and garlic salad.

Both are science, but with most cooking there's less precision involved and mistakes can be corrected later in the process. With baking, you have to follow procedure and use precise measurements from start to finish, otherwise your product doesn't turn out properly.

True

I mean, it may not be an all encompassing truth, but it does have some truth to it. Baking has a lot less room for fucking around to create a good product compared to cooking.
>>
>>7356627
Exactly this.

Baking from a recipe is literally just following directions. Anyone who can't bake something exactly how the recipe states should go back to elementary school.

What if the directions are poor?

bu,mp

If that's true, then why are men better at cooking and women better at baking?

>strawberry, chocolate and garlic salad.
