8 Foods Not to Cook Naked

Connecting with your body, food, and the earth is a beautiful thing, but there are just some things that should not be done naked


Cooking naked could be said to be a freeing act: one where you let go of your inhibitions to connect with your body and the food you eat. You become enraptured in the art of cooking and begin to appreciate your food with a new profound sense of self-awareness — smells, sounds, and tastes are more pronounced. Or, it could be a masochistic, silly experiment where you only inflict pain on yourself.

If you really want to splatter hot grease on your tummy, try frying up some chicken livers !

Cooking naked? As in cooking without clothing on your body? Who does that?
Well at least the article gave me an idea of something to do for my 37th wedding anniversary that's coming up. But I'll be wearing an apron.

Rice Krispie treats! Molten Marshmallow is like napalm on bare skin! Ouch.

Cooking in the nude? Where do you get a hair net for that??

No need for a hair net if there's no hair

Well...I wasn't TOTALLY naked...but I have the scar on my left shin to prove it...the searing meat in a cast iron pan...I can vouch for that one...

Only wimps wear clothes to cook. If you don't have scars on your belly you're a wuss.

When I first read the title to this article, I thought it meant 8 foods that should not be cooked naked in the sense that they should be started in something, like a marinade, sauce or seasoning, I was not expecting it to really mean naked cooking, like in the buff...usually my mind is a gutter ball, but I just did not expect the article to truly be about nudity while cooking...that in itself is a stupid thing to do!!!

Definitely my favorite response of all of them - made me laugh out loud!

sometimes you just forget to put your clothes on when you've got cooking on the mind

There's a nudist club where the cooks cook naked? Every one I have been to did require clothing for the cooks when cooking.

In addition to all the spatter concerns, I might add that shoes are a good idea regardless if you're chopping things. You want to keep all of your toes.

Do not cook Polenta Naked. The spattering of the corn meal can leave nasty burns.

For me, cooking an appitizer, snack, main dish or meal, "tweeked my way of course", is a engaging, pleasing and relaxing experience. I love it!!!

just eat man. you can enjoy any food in any skin if you play it safe w/ some common sense. a little protective gear like an apron on your bare skin is sexy.

Any time you make a sauce and you start with a roux, Do not get that on you also instant mashed potato( they have a purpose) Chef Scott

As experts on cooking naked, we own a nudist resort in sunny Palm Springs, CA, we recommend a splatter screen whether dressed or naked.

And it is much more fun cooking and eating naked with the one you love than wearing clothes. Try it sometime, it's very romantic and sensual.

Bananas Foster! (or anything else that requires you to flambé)
