Ahmadinejad: I'm a Great Cook, and 'What I Make is Delicious'

It's doubtful that when some says "nuke it," Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad thinks about popping dinner in the microwave.

But, Iran's boss did reveal Tuesday that he was a good cook who prepares "delicious" food, and that he regrets not spending more time in the kitchen.

In a TV interview meant to show his lighter side, Ahmadinejad portrayed himself as a workaholic husband who regrets having little time at home.

"Before (I became president) I used to do the grocery shopping. Now sometimes I help in the kitchen and I know how to make all the Iranian food," Ahmadinejad said.

Pressed for details, he defiantly declared: "Of course what I make is delicious! Ask everyone who has eaten it! I can make all the different kinds of soups and Iranian stews."
