Wren Kitchens (who encompass Wren Living and Wren Bathrooms too) have recently completed a Cooking Trends survey… And mad as it sounds, it’s such an interesting read!
One of the questions was ‘do you photograph your food to post online‘. Can you imagine the faces on our parents generation if we’d asked them that 30 years ago? Apart from the obvious “What’s this ‘online’ of which you speak?”, the obvious “WHY would you do that?” would immediately follow.
And yet 44% of us do it now. I’m not actually sure why… and yet, I do love it when my Instagram feed is filled with delicious images of other peoples amazing meals. I think it’s because most of us feel we could be a bit more adventurous with our day-to-day cooking; gazing vicariously at other peoples meals is inspiring (as well as drool-making…), and has certainly pepped up my weekly menu plans.
Another statistic that would have been very different thirty years ago would have been ‘who does the majority of the cooking in your house’.
66% of men say they do the majority of the cooking now – I suspect that would have been a tiny proportion until relatively recently. Although I suspect some misconceptions are going here – 66% of men and 72% of women both claiming they do the lion’s share of the cooking?).
And with modern lifestyles, sitting down to a family meal around the table every day just isn’t always practical. But I do personally feel that it is so important to do it when you can – and I ‘m clearly not alone, with more than half of us managing it 4 or more times a week. Clearly not a nation of disassociated
