Have Your Cooking Skills Improved In 2020?
2020 has been the year at home. A year learning what it means to quarantine. A year learning how to home school. A year of deep cleaning. A year of binge-watching. A year of learning new skills which may include cooking. In fact, all of us have been cooking at home so much more that maybe we could even be considered chefs? Or at least that is what some of us think.
According to a new study conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Certified Piedmontese, more than 40% of Americans think that their cooking skills during 2020 have improved so much since the beginning of the pandemic that they could actually be competitors on the show "MasterChef."
My question is, who are they asking about this? I can promise you that everyone I have talked to about cooking has been surviving either on microwave meals or take out this year because like me, they are afraid to burn their kitchen down. I am no where near being able to have the skill to compete on a cooking show and honestly never will have that skill.
However I am curious about this. Am I the only one who thinks that some of us may have gotten worse at cooking rather than better? I mean I honestly lived off bags of burnt popcorn for awhile there during quarantine. What do you think? Have your cooking skills improved since the pandemic started? Or are you like me and the only skill you have improved is how fast you can binge watch a TV show in a week?
