What Kind of Eater Is Taurus?
“Taurus—along with Libra—is one of the two signs ruled by sensuous, romantic Venus and is arguably the sign most attuned to the finer things in life,” explains Wright. “If it isn’t comforting and delicious, Taurus wants nothing to do with it. Though these lovable bulls often shy away from trying anything outside of their comfort zone (do not suggest they order the rabbit stew when the lobster ravioli is right there!), they have super high standards for the classics. Indulgence is key for these grounded earth signs, so bring on the creamy sauces, the rich chocolate desserts and the expensive bottles of natural wine.”
As far as cooking goes, Taurus prefers eating takeout under a Snuggie on the couch. “But when they are in the kitchen, Tauruses are methodical,” Wright adds. “Watching hours of YouTube to investigate how to make perfect scrambled eggs isn’t just a procrastination activity for Taurus; they’re doing it so they can learn. Unlike Gemini, who will just talk your ear off about cooking skills, Taurus actually puts them into practice. Want a chocolate chip cookie? A Taurus will make you the ideal Nestle Tollhouse recipe. Want sushi for your birthday? Taurus will go all out and make it from scratch.”
