Question makes her hot under the collar

DEAR MISS MANNERS: Is it rude for a man to ask a woman during a first date, “Do you know how to cook?” or “Are you a good cook?” I have just turned 30 and prefer to date men in their late 30s or early 40s, but find it incredibly rude when this is one of their first questions to me. I seldom cook and cooking is never on the forefront of my mind or on my to-do list, but I am a good cook.
