Home improvement website Porch surveyed 750 people, divided into Generation X, Baby Boomers, and millennials; and reported on their kitchen competency. Nearly half of millienals said they cannot cook a ribeye steak to medium temperature. Furthermore, only half of millennials said they could competently roast a chicken.
The disappointment continues...
A few choice stats: 56 percent of millennials could identify a garlic press; only 47 percent could braise a piece of meat; and 30 percent wouldn’t know how to mince garlic. Boomers and Gen Xers are more adept at all those tasks, according to the report. Tom Brokaw may have been a bit over-the-top in his praise of “The Greatest Generation,” but Baby Boomers were fighting overseas at what, 19 years old?, suturing wounds and shaping the course of world history. Fast forward, and 59 percent of millennials couldn’t make salad dressing.
