Good news, the French cook! At least that's what 87% of respondents answered when asked what they regularly did in their cooked. But the best part is that they like it because cooking allows them to free themselves, to express themselves and somewhere to sign their dish as they would sign a canvas.
The cooked would it be a revealer of personality? A big yes for 73% of men and 80% of women surveyed. 46% of them go further, assimilating the cooked at the studio of an artist. Yet here is no question of playing it solo, the cooked is an experience to share, family, between friends without much seriousness. The cooked remains a place of relaxation where the creativity of everyone can run for 43% of people surveyed. Because when wecooked together "everyone is free to add his grain of salt, for 76% of this target. The cooked to many means for 91% of them "to share a moment" is the opportunity to "tell their culinary experiences or their travels", for 75%, "to confide" for 56% and for 31% "arguing" (a little).
A new living room
The cooked is no longer a recluse room at the bottom of the house or apartment. The cooked has become the living space: 78% of French people consider it a friendly place, exchanges and dialogues in housing: 57% eat, 39% drink a glass, 35% discuss with their relatives, 28 % listen to the radio, 18% call, 9% watch their text or read ...
With the crisis, 75% of respondents believe that the cooked has transformed itself into "a refuge to improve its daily life" and 83% count through it "preserve the spirit of celebration, without spending too much". A form of new epicureanism is born one seeks simple pleasures. Faced with declining resources, the French exercise their creativity, practice conviviality and the generosity of sharing.
