Who cooks better: Asuka or Rei

This needs to be settled.

In 2.0 Asuka and Rei decide to cook for baka-Shinji (the man is unlucky but he gets all the girls), but sadly Masterchef Evangelion edition gets postponed indefinitely because of some minor impact(s), so the question is left unanswered: who is the best cook, Asuka or Rei?

Personally I wouldn't eat anything made by a girl who eat pills all the time, but at the same time Asuka is German and that requires caution, so I have to say Rei.

Mmm-kay, I would eat at Rei's place without any doubt. I've recently discovered some Japanese ready-made food named Oyakata. It's almost nothing but pasta, which is fake and creepy, but sauce, my goodnesss, the sauce! I could kill for it.

I adore Asuka very much and why wouldn't I want to eat what she cooks? I have absolute faith in her. It would be the best munchies of my life.

I don't doubt on Reis cooking either, but I don't want to enrage the red goddess.
I carry out things right to the end. No. Matter. What.

Rei is at a disadvantage, given the life she's endured. I may be recalling incorrectly, but didn't her diet consist entirely of pills?

Asuka has been exposed to proper food, so she has a better understanding of the matter.

That said, Rei is capable of learning (her entire character arc is one of self-discovery, after all), and Asuka's temper could put her at a disadvantage.

She accepted miso soup from Shinji.

I think they'd both be great cooks but this image of Rei does make me laugh.

Those two are some of my favorite pieces of fanart: they both almost killed me of laughter when I first saw them (sadly, they failed).
The Asuka one is by Puakachan .. a very NSFW artist I would never link to (the original picture is in private mode anyways, for some reason).
The Rei one is by Tsurukame (doku)... a "cheeky" NSFW artist.
I'm a lurker at heart.

It's nice to see the mother and daughter bonding through cooking. Very WAFF-y.

I s'pose you're right, Rei IV. Shin-chan it is. Contest over.

Lastly, Joseki, thank you for that image. My new favorite meme. Italian food is superior.

Every time Rei cooks, she causes an Impact. Please think of Earth's/humanity's well being.

Gonna go with Asuka on this one, in 2.0 she at least had knowledge of seasonings so that's a big help when trying to make something. Rei never really had experience with it so even if she were to follow a recipe they tend to leave the seasonings up to personal taste. I could see Rei making the novice mistake of under/over seasoning something.

I can't link this here but there's a none hentai comic by Kuro Tengu called TAMAGOKAKE that has Hikari trying to teach Rei and Asuka to cook but they both suck at it but then you find that Mari sucks worse.

Edit sorry for link issue I hope you can see this.

Indeed. Without pasta, the world would be measurably darker, and sadder. Pasta is the light that illuminates the stomachs of the world. This guy knows what I'm talking about:
