Young people are lack of the basic knowledge of cooking these days. For them, cooking spends too much of their time. This is understably especially for people who are working from 9 am to 8 pm where most of the people i know said they would rather eat out and then enjoy the evening doing something else.
I love this question/topic... and the IDEA of a "product" that would do this is very interesting and thought-provoking.
There is just SO much that is already available to pique interest in cooking that I think this needs to be more of a "movement" than something that can be purchased
or something. You point out that people now have less time than they once did... In addition, the AVAILABILITY of food through take-out franchises has never been higher.
Fewer adults seem to have the time to MODEL home cooking skills/passion... I really hate to think about the state of home cooking say 20-30 years further down the road. It may turn out to be more of a "hobby" than it is now.
