A new study revealed that Indians are more passionate about cooking; on an average they spend over 13 hours a week cooking. People in Ukraine also spend more time cooking followed by Indians.
German-based market research firm GfK conducted the study on how the world cooks. The study involved interviewing over 27,000 people aged 15 and above across 22 countries on the number of hours spent each week cooking.
The findings of the study showed that the countries topped the list are India (13.2 hours) and Ukraine (13.1 hours), followed by South Africa (9.5 hours), Indonesia (8 hours) and Italy (7 hours) a week.
Other international countries like Spain, Canada, Australia, Poland, Argentina, Belgium, UK, USA, China, Mexico, Sweden, France and Germany spent around less than six hours a week cooking.
The countries where people spent least amount of time cooking were Brazil (5.2 hours), Turkey (4.9 hours) and South Korea (3.7 hours), probably due to the availability of popular inexpensive street food carts.
People of South Africa and India (50% and 48% respectively) claimed to be the most confident in cooking skills and have great knowledge and experience about food and cooking. Followed by Turkey and Ukraine at 40 percent each and Indonesia at 38 percent.
