    >mom
    could only make eggs for breakfast and straight up refuses to cook dinner. If my Dad doesn't make dinner she will just get takeout for herself.
    >grandma
    same as mom minus the eggs, clearly genetic.
    >nana
    didn't know how to cook but learned for my papa. Food was never gourmet but it was consistent.
    Honestly all of the cooking in my family comes from the men.

      Sometimes cooks, if you count oven dinners from costco, following 6-ingredient box recipes, and prepping salad as cooking
      >Grandma on mom's side
      Whole family can't cook. Even in-laws on her side can't make a not-bone-dry chicken breast to save their life.
      >Grandma on Dad's side
      She used to burn water, but got better after learning from international visitors my grandparents hosted.
      Meanwhile, I can do ad hoc dinners and follow 10+ ingredient recipes and the youngest brother is positively shitting out different dishes and desserts.

    8, 10, and 13 are untrue. Brown bread had a lot of cultural significance in New England (pic related), teabags were invented in the 1910's, and smoked salmon/lox was just as important with the israeli community as it is now

    like 16 or so when I started cooking and almost immediately btfo my mom's cooking. I always knew my grandma's cooking was garbage, but my mom's was passable until I was doing it myself and realized how much better it could be.

    1950s probably not. but i looked at an Amercan diner menus from the 1800s and it was surprisingly sophisticated cooking. American cultural peaked pre 1900s

    This is so moronic. Indian restaurants have been in the UK since the 1800s. Look through a Victorian cookbook and it'll have recipes for curry and kedgeree.

    Super young. Mom couldn't boil water, and grandma was a shit cook - grandpa went to a local cafe to eat so he didn't starve. Dad could half ass shit, sorta. His mom I think could cook, but I remember jack shit about it because she died too early for me to learn from her. I basically learned to make my own food post-elementary school, because if I didn't I was going to eat shitty ass past well done burgers and steaks. I survived off hot dogs and other similar freezer food items for a good while.

      How old were you when you realized that your mom/grandma were not actually good cooks?

      Kellogg (as in the cereal company) was endorsing yogurt in 1876 and was prescribing it for patients with irregular bowl movements
      oh and 15 quart yogurt enema, medical practices were a little crazy in the early days (it used a pump to get all 15 quarts injected in under 1 minute).

    My mom and grandma are great cooks. It actually fricked me up as a kid because when friends had me over for dinner it was subpar or just plain awful. I still have this tendency to think of excuses when someone tries to invite me over for dinner lmao. I don't care much for eating out either.

    People always say they can’t believe lobster was served to prisoners, like wtf? But it wasn’t Red Lobster® Lobster. It was likely canned or even worse, spoiling lobster that would get mashed up and boiled and served like gruel, and even then it was served in prisons close to the coast. The only reason lobster got so expensive was because of the invention of refrigeration and innovations in transporting live food, so rich people in Nebraska could have fresh lobster, and then word of mouth got around and demand went up, supply went down etc.

    My Grandpa grew up in Maine and he said that Lobsters used to just walk around the beach and no one cared and poor men used to grab a bunch and take them home to their families.

      >Sandy Oliver, a food historian and writer based in Isleboro, Maine, shared our suspicions: “Who the hell is going to pick all the meat off the lobster to produce enough for a prison full of people?”
      >Lobster, on the other hand, was “tricky to transport (if they died en route they were no good for human consumption), cumbersome to prepare, requiring large kettles (that’s why many urban shoppers brought them home already cooked), and then there would be the problem of disposal of massive amounts of shells.”
      >Oliver, the historian from Maine, did her own digging and found no contemporaneous references to New England prisoners eating lobster during the 17th or 18th centuries. And when the story did materialize in town histories later on, it wasn’t even initially about lobster.
      They originally said it about salmon apparently and even then it was untrue lol.

    Man, I recently got to go through my grandma's recipe cards and so many started with premade ingredients like cake mixes, instant pudding, or cans of cream-of-something, and a good many called for margarine, food dye, or other similar ingredients. I could sub that stuff out or make my own version of it but in the end very few of the recipes were actually special enough to keep and I tossed the majority.

    I give my mom a lot of shit, only kinda seriously, for giving me so much microwavable junk food as a kid, especially for breakfast before school. But her worse offense was a plastic rice steamer pot from pampered chef that she cooked rice in using the microwave. I got some unrelated endocrine disorders later on and joke that the pot caused them.

    This is definitely a non-America thing because pizza had already existed for about 50 years, the big Mac was invented 8 years later, cubed sugar was popularized in the early 1900s, and yogurt was popularized in America in the 30's.
