“It’s all in the planning.”

Did you know that over 60% of Americans don’t feel competent in the kitchen?

While many passionately follow cooking shows and culinary magazines, over 60% of Americans feel unequipped to handle basic kitchen tasks. This disconnect between culinary enthusiasm and practical skills results in:

  • Stress & Fatigue: Cooking, ideally therapeutic, often feels overwhelming.
  • Creativity Block: Daily meal choices become daunting.
  • Waste: Unused groceries end up discarded.
  • Recipe Mishaps: Efforts in the kitchen don’t always succeed.
  • Skill Gaps: Challenges arise with basic tasks like chopping or frying.
  • Planning & Cleanup Aversion: The whole process, from planning to post-cooking cleanup, feels burdensome.

This shift away from home cooking impacts not just households but also the restaurant industry seeking skilled workers. Moreover, the rise of take-out, while convenient, misses the genuine joy and benefits of homemade meals.
