Changing Cooking & Dining Habits


Chuck Williams, founder of the Williams-Sonoma cookware chain, says this about cooking in the next decade:

"It's headed toward easier and more convenient cooking. I don't think people will let their favorite dishes disappear, but the kind of cooking done by our grandmothers will. People just don't have the time and there are too many alternatives. People used to cook three meals a day because they had to, even if they did not like to cook. Now there are other options. People today cook on weekends and to entertain."
