Many people are taking up cooking at home during the pandemic, have you?

SINGAPORE – 23 JULY, 2021 – As the COVID-19 pandemic presses on unrelentingly, more people in Singapore and the rest of the world have settled into new lifestyle routines that involve not just working but also cooking at home. In Asia alone, the average number of meals cooked at home increased from 6.8 to 7.3 between 2018 to 2019.

There are many reasons for the growth of home cooking trends in the current pandemic period. For instance, consumers now feel unsafe eating from restaurants, and the prevalent lockdowns have left many eateries intermittently closed since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020.

Consumers who work at home no longer stop at their favourite dine-ins for coffee or breakfast on their commute as they used to before the pandemic. Neither are they visiting the lunch spots near their offices now that they are working from home. On the plus side, many are also discovering the nutritional and economical value of home-prepared meals.

Prior to the pandemic, most people were cooking less due to the convenience of getting ready-made meals in restaurants. Now that they are stuck at home, consumers are now exploring new recipes, homemade gourmets, and flavours.
