HA NOI — A new TV programme offering a different view on gender roles is scheduled to make its debut this Sunday at 9pm on VTV2.
“Cooking is easy” will feature Vietnamese husbands and boyfriends, with the guidance of a professional cook, attempting to prepare a meal for their loved ones.
The show’s producers hope it will also help strengthen bonds between family members and encourage Vietnamese men to enter the kitchen and cook for the family, a task that is almost exclusively taken up by females in Việt Nam.
The show will provide homemakers with information on how to select the best ingredients, how to thoroughly purify and safely prepare family meals. It will also feature Western style dining etiquette and a basic introduction to wine selection and tasting.
Regular couples as well as several celebrities are to make appearances on the show. The show’s producer, Truong Thanh Communication Company, said it had plans to produce up to 52 episodes or one for each week during the first year. — VNS
