Dads becoming popular in the kitchen

Working dads, who put on an apron and cook.

 

It’s becoming a growing trend for fathers to help out more often in the kitchen, cooking up an array of meals for their families.

Last month research by DAD.info found 55 per cent of fathers refusing to resort to ready meals for their children and choosing to whip up a spaghetti bolognese instead.

An added bonus to many is that food prices have fallen for the first time in eight years.

According to the latest shop price index from the British Retail Consortium and Nielsen, annual food fell 0.2 per cent in November – the first annual fall since the BRC started keeping records in 2006.

Perhaps this can be seen as good news for those who are planning to have more input when it comes to preparing and cooking the Christmas dinner.

With just over two weeks until the big day, there is more than enough time to prepare for the occasion.

In 2008, a study by US researchers at the University of North Carolina, found the percentage of men who spent time cooking jumped 42 per cent from 29 per cent in 1965.

So, maybe this year will be your year to head into the kitchen and cook up a festive treat, aside from the morning fry-up.

Women love men who can cook, in fact many partners would be pleased to see their other half help out.

Not only can you enjoy impressing others with the culinary delights you create, but you can also educate your children that cooking is something men should be proud they can do.
