Have you become a better at-home chef since quarantine?

While it's still possible to grab your dinner at a local restaurant, the idea of picking up your breakfast on the way to work and running out for a quick lunch break looks a little different in the age of quarantine. For some, the prospect of cooking at home seemed far too daunting and time-consuming to make it a regular part of the day. But as the amount of time spent in the home increases, so too do attempts in the kitchen. Has self-quarantine made you a better chef?

According to the New York Times' Hans Taparia, American's cooking habits are making leaps and bounds unlike anything seen in the last half-century: 

At a scale not seen in over 50 years, America is cooking, a healthy move in the middle of a pandemic.

The obsession with sourdough and banana bread may be receiving the most publicity online, but those in self-quarantine are trying their hand at all sorts of meals: 

In one recent survey, 54 percent of respondents said they cook more than before the pandemic, 75 percent said they have become more confident in the kitchen and 51 percent said they will continue to cook more after the crisis ends. 

According to Taparia, more at-home cooking may be to Americans' benefit: 

Frequent cooking could make a difference in outcomes — on average, people who frequently cook at home eat less fat and sugar than other people.

But for some, cooking will just never click. Whether stuck at home or not, there's no need to force something that's just not meant to be.
