As per the mythological stories Nala Maharaj was also a good cook and as mentioned by the author Bhima was also a good cook. That is why Nala Bhima Pakam has become very famous. Even these days also the higher quantities of cooking for marriages and other functions also being done by male cooks only.
I didn't know that Bhima was a good cook this is the first time I have heard such information about him.

You haven't read or watched Mahabharath in detail. After spending 12 years in exile, the 13th year was a difficult period for Pandavas to be in their disguised form. If they were identified and caught, they were to repeat their 12 years in exile as agreed. During the 13th year, all the five brothers and Draupathi lived in Virat kingdom in disguise. Yudhistra was the King's Advisor as Ganga Pattar, Bhim was the Royal cook as Pallaya, and Draupathi as a maidservant to the Virat Queen as Shylendri. Nakul and Sahadev also had their name changed and looked after the cows and horses.
Bhima served the King's family with delicious dishes. Bhima was not only an expert cook but also a heavy eater.

I have had the oppurtunity to relish both the items vegetarian and non vegetarian cooked by my wife but at times, she insists me on serving some varieties of my choice. The net result is always surprising to me when she says the servings are perfect contains full aromas and tasty.
To tell you the truth, I add one teaspoon of chiken masala along with the usual spices of coriander powder and cumin powder to add some tangy flavour.
When I was doing my post graduation, due to my health problems I was not taking food outside and hence I used to cook myself but it was limited to rice and vegetables. Anyway this went for one year in my second year I got a family who were delivering home made food to nearby students on a reasonable price. So, I went for that and during the second year I got rid of the cooking hassles.
Later in emergency only, I cooked some items time to time for 1-2 persons and I am still in touch with the kitchen but so far I have not cooked food for more number of people as that requires some practice and experience.
