Probably the fact that women love to obsessively collect baking-related status symbols that they'll use once a year, such as Cuisinart stand mixers, and men love to obsessively collect grilling related status symbols such as those Green Egg things that they'll use once and then never use again. You never hear women raving about Green Eggs, and you never hear men talking about how hubby got them that stand mixer they've always wanted.
Protip: men have ding-dongs and women have cooches, these differences are not made up.
>>7372456 Well, the whole home kitchen scenario we take for granted isn't that old, historically speaking. Traditionally, women kept the hearth and only cooked simple staple foods, like gruel and stews over a fire that also warmed the house. >peas porridge nine days old while men did larger scale cooking tasks like running kitchens and inns which included roasting meats and game. in the old days, there was a village baker and a butcher that would take your flour and game and livestock and give you back bread and meats, preserved or raw or roasted and these were men. Men ran the big kitchens of the nobility as well.
With the rise of the middle classes in the Georgian period, more people had kitchens in the houses instead of just hearthfires, and women gradually assumed the role of head of the household and ran their home kitchens, while men still did professional cooking and baking.
Over time that separation has continued and become traditional, with head chefs overwhelmingly male and women still doing the majority of the cooking at home.
With the advent of the outdoor grill, it was a natural continuation of that split, since the grill is literally outside the house, it became the male domain that still feeds into that narrative of men cooking the expensive, high nutritive value foods(meat) for more than just the immediate family, outside the home kitchen.

I think you don't know anything about baking, friend.
>>7372456 Baking is foolproof since a man made all the recipes a woman would ever need. They just need to follow directions. Women aren't good at that, that's why they have two black eyes and it makes it hard to discern the ingredients and method from their bake books.
In my circle, someone I know is grilling almost every day and I personally do it no less than once a week and at least 2twice a week in the summer months. Despite the high for tomorrow being 0C, I'll be grilling.
