Man vs woman: Who should cook on Valentine's Day?

INCLUSION of Valentine's Day recipes in tomorrow's NewsMail has sparked some debate in the office about whose job it is to cook on Valentine's Day. 

Reporter Emma Reid argues it's better for the lady to do the cooking, but designer Jay Fielding says that's not the case. 

Read their arguments then have a say in our poll. 

Jay - Men should cook for women

Valentine's Day is essentially a day for men to court women.

Men give women flowers, men give women gifts, men shower women with affection, men take women out for romantic dinners and therefore  men should be the ones cooking delicacies like chocolate pots for women.

Women do enough to please men. Valentine's Day is one day of the year women can rightfully expect the complete opposite.

Emma - It's the woman's job to cook

Cooking on Valentine's day should be done by the female for the male.

The lady should be surprised with gifts and the male should be rained with food.

One thing I have always known the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach.  

And there is nothing better to cook for your man on the day that celebrates love.
