I want people to praise my cooking graph of japanese statisticsMacromill Research recently took a look at the subject of men and cooking.

Demographics

Between the 28th and 30th of October 2011 516 male members of the Macromill monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 25% of the sample were in their twenties, 25% in their thirties, 25% in their forties, and 25% in their fifties. In addition, 312 female members were also interviewed, also with 25% in each of the age brackets.

I actually got asked to do the cooking on Sunday evening as my wife had a sore hand, but she decided to soldier on and all I ended up doing was peeling the spuds and a turnip…

Japanese men in the kitchen: part 1 of 2

Cooking is woman's work graph of japanese statisticsMacromill Research recently took a look at the subject of men and cooking.

I very rarely cook, although I do often help out in the kitchen. When I do cook, my speciality is quiche; everything else turns out a bit ordinary, and I am teribly slow. On the other hand, I do love baking, although I don’t do that as much as I would like. I bought some scone mix at the weekend, so sometime round about Christmas I’ll whip up a few.

Japanese wives in the kitchen: part 2 of 2

I'm happy even if my husband's cooking is disgusting. Do you agree? graph of japanese statisticsA recent very detailed survey from Macromill Research Inc looked at the matter of cooking and married couples’ relationships

Demographics

Between the 2nd and 4th of April 2010 516 married female members of the Macromill monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 25.0% of the sample were in their twenties, 25.0% in their thirties, 25.0% in their forties, and 25.0% aged fifty or older.

My wife would like me to cook occasionally, perhaps once a month, but due to a combination of my only decent dish being a flan or quiche, we neve quite having the right ingredients in, and my general slow speed in the kitchen, I haven’t actually cooked for years!

Japanese wives in the kitchen: part 1 of 2

How good are you at cooking? graph of japanese statisticsA recent very detailed survey from Macromill Research Inc looked at the matter of cooking and married couples’ relationships

Demographics

Between the 2nd and 4th of April 2010 516 married female members of the Macromill monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 25.0% of the sample were in their twenties, 25.0% in their thirties, 25.0% in their forties, and 25.0% aged fifty or older.

You’ll note in the above results that there isn’t a separate entry for the wife working and a househusband. Whether there were no such couples, they were filtered out, or just forgotton about, I do not know.

My wife cooks about five or six days a week – at the weekends we’ll have one evening meal out, and during the week there’s occasionally times when she goes to the cinema, etc, and we meet somewhere to eat out. At home we almost always eat together – she’ll eat before me if I’m going to be later than about 7:30, but fortunately that rarely happens.
