You don’t have to be a professional chef to love, and be good at, cooking, and apparently a lot of folks are pretty impressed with their own abilities in the kitchen.
A new survey (conducted by OnePoll on behalf ofNaked Bacon) finds:
- 46% of Americans think they have qualities of a professional chef.
- 53% of people believe they have a family recipe that would impress a professional chef.
- Some of those family recipes include:
- Bacon wrapped elk loin fillets, twice baked potatoes and cucumber/tomato salad.
- Apple blueberry cobbler with ice cream
- Chicken & Dumplings
- Crawfish with egg noodles cream cheese and spicy jalapeño cheddar cheese dip.
- Eggplant Parmesan
And it sounds like spending so much time at home due to the pandemic has motivated folks to embrace their old family recipes
- Over half of those polled say they used their time in quarantine to reconnect with their iconic family recipes.
- 68% say they often make dinners their parents used to make for them when they were young.
- 72% say now that they are adults they have grown to love foods the despised as kids.
- The top foods they disliked as a kid but love now include:
- Asparagus (31%)
- Brussel sprouts (30%)
- Broccoli (27%)
- Spinach (21%)
- Green beans (19%)
- Fish (19%)
- Avocados (18%)
