Britishers don't cook meals from scratch: survey

Sep 30 2013, 5:00am CDT | by IANS

London, Sep 30 (IANS) A recent study has revealed that one-sixth of Britishers prefer ready to make food options rather than using fresh spices and vegetables to prepare food.

London, Sep 30 — A recent study has revealed that one-sixth of Britishers prefer ready to make food options rather than using fresh spices and vegetables to prepare food.

The study done by Co-operative Food, a brand devised for the grocery business of the consumer co-operative movement in Britain, reveals that British families prefer to eat from packet-based or jarred ingredients to making evening meals at least four times a week, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Dishes like meatballs, sausage casserole and cottage pie are the favourite among people as they are easily available as packaged food.

"The research shows we're a nation of makers and fakers when it comes to evening meals. For the majority of British adults, life is one big juggling act and often the thought of having to prepare a meal from the bare ingredients after a really long day can be an unwelcome one," said Andrew Mann of Co-operative Food.

"Who wants to always be spending hours in the kitchen cooking on a Saturday night when you could be settling down in front of the TV with the family and enjoying 'The X Factor'," he added.

The top 20 packet food dishes of Britishers are-

- Fajitas

- Spaghetti bolognese

- Lasagne

- Chicken curry

- Stir fry

- Chilli con carne

- Enchiladas

- Pasta bake

- Pizza

- Sausage casserole

- Chicken casserole

- Spaghetti carbonara

- Cottage pie

- Shepherd's pie

- Burritos

- Coq au vin

- Meatballs and tagliatelle

- Macaroni cheese

- Beef stew

- Beef stroganoff
