Hello again. This is a reading I like so much.
A recent study shows that 60% oí British young people can't boil an egg. Four out of ten never or hardly ever cook. One teenager said “I can’t cook - bul it doesn't matter You just go to the supermarket and buy a pizza and put ¡t ¡n the microwave. Cooking is a waste of time.”
A lot of adults think the same, and don't cook. They buy pre-cooked meals from the supermarket or take-away food And ¡f a mother bates cooking, then she doesn’t teach her children to cook. Many schools don't teach cooking – they prefer to teach Computer skills and foreign languages.
I think all this is very sad, For me, cooking is a very important skill. Everybody loves having a delicious meal but restaurants are expensive, so people who can cook well always have a lot of friends. Men love women who can cook - and women love men who can cook. Who would yon prefer as a partner? Somebody who can use a Computer, or a good cook?
