Youngsters ditch tradition for celebrity recipe inspiration
Most of us would have picked up recipes and traditions in the kitchen from our parents and family, but not the current generation.
Today's generation instead look to the internet and celebrity chefs for inspiration, a new report reveals.
Even just 20 years ago, 36 percent of Brits cited our mothers as the inspiration in the kitchen.
But now that figure has plummeted to 16 per cent while social media and YouTube account for the source of recipes for one in five cooks.
And among 25-to-34-year-olds, 38 per cent of those polled in the UK go online for recipes, watching Ella Mills and other foodie celebrities.
The author of modern Jewish cookbook Fress says: “Mothers tend to have a set repertoire of dishes. But kids like sites such as Tasty on Facebook where they can watch a 30- or 60-second film then find the recipe. They just want quick, easy dishes.”
The Lakeland report revealed the celebrity chef the British youngsters would most like to cook with is Gordon Ramsay, followed by Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Mary Berry and then Nadiya Hussain.
