How many people under 30 actually know how to cook?

Is the meme that every zoomer and late stage millennial are hooked on food delivery apps true?

            My school dreams involve me not being able to complete a worksheet/test meanwhile everybody has completed theirs and are leaving class one by one. This has to represent a deep insecurity that I'm not where I'm supposed to be compared to my peers.

          When I dream and think back of home I always remember myself as 24 years old with my mom and dad and the dog. Dad's been dead for 3 years and I still imagine he's off playing chess every friday. These days whenever I leave from visiting my mom I get sad because how many visits do I have left. It wrecks me to know that the dog will probably go through 2-3 more christmasses cause she's getting old and then it's just my mother who will slowly witter over the years. God, I wish I could go back.

          I'm pretty sure everyone stops mentally growing in high school and the only reason we see the current "old people" as more mature is strictly generational differences.
          People are who they will always be by the time they get out of highschool.

I remember bumping into old high school friends at 6pm when they are coming home from work and me from college lol and seeing the toll work has done on them. They legit looked "old." Not like dry and Grey, but the demeanor. Like haggard and defeated looking. Like very senior like. This is why at age 30, so many men look like shit. Like 5 years of being stuck at work 50 hours a week eating shit food and 4 years of shit food at uni for 4 years before the workforce. I saw my neighbors daughter, same age as me, she looks malnourished, dry, feeble, weak, brittle and very un lively and senior like and total lack of energy and youth. She was never a looker but she looks like she has the demeanor of a senior.

            Tbh I think men never grow out of being young and energetic. But being stuck with one female who has no youthful energy and no looks can definitely age a man quicker. Imagine jumping and dancing around like a teenager while your 35 year old wife can barely jump and run around full energy. Definitely saps your youthfulness with her stiffness.

            I can cook, I just don't like dealing with all the bullshit that comes with it. Gotta grocery shop, wash dishes, clean counters, etc etc. Plus with the price of groceries these days, you're not even saving that much money.

            My issues is the dishes. I like the cooking I cook for people they just think I'm their slave and should do dishes as well because frick me that's why.

            I'm 29 and technically right below your cutoff, but I thankfully know how to cook. I do notice that my peers struggle though, and in turn spend shitloads of money on take-out.
            My grocery bill is like 200-250 euro tops, usually less since I cook meals in bulk and freeze them.

            Pic related, Pajeet slop. (I'm white before anyone calls me a curry. I just like learning making different foods.)

            I will admit that I can't bake for shit. Partly because I don't have a good oven.

            >good oven
            Wtf does that even mean? People used to bake using wood ovens where the temp was way less controllable get a thermometer if you need it.

      Just don't eat it. I'm not sure it'll work because times have changed but I always tried to be the go along to get along don't be too alpha or assertive "we'll share things" type. At least in my case that's not what she was looking for. When she gets door slap 3 times a week just don't eat it. Make it subtle change up your reasons maybe eat a little bit of it here and there but make it clear that's not what you expect. Unless you want that forever?

      Who do you think is going to live longer his Church friends or his Engineer friends? If you love your lady you will not just show her but lead her. If I could go back instead of just talking about going for walks I'd just take off on walks and she could come or hear how much fun I meat meeting Dog Moms at the park.

    Depends on what you mean by "knows how to cook". Any moron can follow a recipe. The amount of people who can take a handful of ingredients and make a variety of meals without an app or website telling them what to do is definitely getting lower and lower.

      i think this trait is less common in even boomers than you might think. a LOT of people either follow recipes or make the same 1-2 dozen dishes that they're already familiar with. shit, i'd say that's true for me, and i consider myself a decent cook.

    I'm a zoomer and I cook. I mainly learnt from living alone.
    I don't cook anything grand though. >rice with soy sauce on the side
    >white beans with tabasco on the side
    >chili with kidney beans, ground beef, and onions
    >mushroom soup from pork bones
    >fried puffball mushrooms when they're in season (they grow here, i oftentimes make so much that i only eat puffball mushrooms for like, a week)
    >hamburg steaks with gravy and onions and mushrooms
    >pork with marinade
    I like everything I eat, even if it's simple. I don't cook side dishes.
    I theorize that people overestimate their taste, so they often order out some oily chinese or pizza when in reality they wouldbe perfectly fine with some beans 1/10th of the price and more convenient too.
    Oftentimes I'm hungry, but not in the mood to taste anything unique, so I eat something simple like beans or rice. If I'm working out that day, I make sure to get some heavy protein. But I never get fancy with it like a chef.
    I have never followed a recipe in my life, other than to make specialty foods like chocolate, kvass, or dandelion wine.
    Cooking is simple and convenient, but none of my friends really try. I think they're afraid of stoves, even though putting something on and then forgetting about it for thirty minutes and then coming back when its done is way easier than going through the hassle of doordash or pickup delivery.
    I do think there's a measure of indolence to their anti-cooking mindset. But I also think there's a mindset where if you're cooking you have to know spices and oils and wines and vineagar. But I don't use any of that stuff. I don't need it. and I'm happy with the food I cook and eat. Maybe I just lack tastebuds, but I suspect other people do overestimate their own tastebuds. Not just zoomers, millenials and gen x too.
    Sorry for the blogpost.

    It varies a lot but as a whole it kinda comes across more like a hobby then a general life skill. Some know a LOT and cook often, and some struggle to make boxed mac and cheese. I've also encountered a lot of people who kinda just wanted to LOOK like they cook a lot but really don't - eg the people who have tons of coffee table books and watch lots of Bon Appetit.

    I do remember that a lot of zoomer girls I talked to on dating apps were absolutely blown away by the fact that I knew how to cook and loved that I work in a restaurant because The Bear just came out... but immediately reacted in a "oh cool he's gonna provide for me and cook me lots of cheffy foods and get me into exclusive restaurants" kind of way

    Cooking as a hobby is a meme. As long as you don't burn whatever you are cooking and add the right ingredients as per the recipe, it's all going to be fine. Anything "fancy" suffers from huge diminishing returns such that you may wind up with something 5% tastier / better looking after putting in 100% more effort. Like the scrambled eggs Gordan Ramsey makes - it takes me half the time to make perfectly serviceable eggs. How fricking good could his be to require all that moronic taking on, off the burner shit?
