Why do men think that ALL women know how to cook?
One of my favorite books. It’s a mix between romance, fantasy, historical… And it continues Arthur’s legend, after his defeat at Camlann, so it has a drop of Celtic myths. Hope you enjoy.

“Why so glum?”
She looked up at Hero’s voice to see him and the brothers approaching the fire. He was carrying a small string of three hares. His armor was gone again, and he was dressed in black leather breeches and a thin leather jerkin.
“We were just discussing the uselessness of life,” Blaise said, pushing himself up from the ground.
Hero dropped the hares by the fire. “No wonder. That’s enough to depress even the manic.”
Heroine rose more slowly as Merrick and Derrick eyed her.
“It’ll be good to have a woman’s cooking again.”
She arched a brow at that. “I can’t cook.”
Merrick scoffed. “Of course you can. All women are good cooks.”
“No, we’re not. I was a princess in Mercia and have been a servant to Narishka ever since. I’ve never cooked anything in my life.”
Hero pulled out a small dagger. “I can make do.”
Blaise snorted as he held his hand out for the weapon. “And I happen to be a great cook, so before you burn it or poison me with undercooked meat, let me do it.”
Hero handed over the dagger. “No arguments from me.”
Derrick screwed his face up. “This better be worth eating, mandrake.”
“Can you do better?”
“No,” Merrick said at the same time Erik chattered, “He can’t cook for shit. None of us can.”
Erik rolled over onto his back and feigned a violent, choking death.
Merrick gestured at the ferret. “Exactly.”
“Oh shut up both of you,” Derrick snarled.
Blaise cut the hares free from the string. “Make yourselves useful while I skin these and go get more firewood.”
Grumbling, they obliged.
