The clause "who can cook" is an adjective clause (aka relative clause), a group of words with a subject (who) and a verb (can cook) that is introduced by a relative pronoun, but does not express a complete thought. Example:

A man who can cook is a man after my own heart.
The clause "who can cook" is describing the noun "man".

He scrubbed the kitchen until everything shined.
The clause "until everything shined" is modifying the verb "scrubbed".
