Half Of Americans Have A Recipe That Will Impress A Chef


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%)
