Ha - I'm glad this sentence is in here. Now I won't forget.

Why does one not use 'met' rather than 'op'? Dank je wel!

It is "on" and not "with" because you cook on a stove that is powered by gas. But it would seem that "cooking on gas" is acceptable English too (British vs. American - http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/be+cooking+on+gas). If that answer isn't accepted, maybe we should suggest it.

Waarom "koks" en niet "kokken". Vergelijk "rok" en "rokken" :S
