Take a photo of your masterpiece, whack it on our facebook page and you could very well be NZPork’s Man of the Month. And then all kinds of wonderful things will happen to you.

Setting the stupid table.

Laps are not tables. So don't even bother.

Choosing utensils is no time to innovate – stick with the classics – knives, forks, etc..

Turn the telly off. Turning your head at a 180 degree angle whilst chewing makes digestion problematic.

Get the table sorted before you cook. Otherwise your genius creation will sit there, going cold.

Washing the damn dishes.

It sucks. There's no getting around it.

But leaving it to others will undo all the good work you've done.

So harden up, and put those rubber gloves on baby. Yes, the pink ones.

No-one likes a one hit wonder.

The true test of a man, or a cook, is the ability to follow up. So make your pork dinners a routine, and man o man, will you in for some treats.
