BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS REVEALS 2016 DINNER REPORT
BHG Uncovers How the American Dinner Has Evolved
79% of Women Report Eating Dinner at Home 5+ Nights per Week
Whether you’re setting the table for a family of five or for one, making a meal at home is still high on the priority list. No matter what we’re cooking (or not cooking), we’re doing it smarter and faster, and making it a practice rather than a production. From data collected through Better Homes and Gardens’ Food Factor Study – which has polled more than 2,000 women, age-18 plus, for the past 25 years – BHG reveals insights into the food, shopping, and cooking habits of consumers in the United States. Here is what we found:
READERS ARE HEADING BACK TO THE KITCHEN IN RECORD NUMBERS
79% percent of women typically eat dinner at home five or more nights a week, with 80% saying that cooking is an important part of family traditions, and 74% saying it’s a critical part of how they entertain.
DINNER HAS BECOME A FORM OF EXPRESSION
More than two-thirds of women in the United States say cooking is a creative outlet for them, and almost 75% regularly experiment and cook new dishes at home.
THE PANTRY HAS GONE GLOBAL
63% of women like to experiment with regional or ethnic food in their cooking, with 78% always looking to bring new flavors.
Exotic ingredients like kimchi, tahini and cotija have become pantry staples for adventurous eaters.
READERS CRAVE COMFORT WITH A SIDE OF HEALTHY
42% of women say they want to eat more healthfully – which means ingredients that are fresh, and meals that contain extra veggies.
Today, 59% of women declare they’re eating more healthfully than a few years ago, with 86% saying they try to control the healthfulness of the meals they prepare – making cooking at home more important than ever.
THERE’S A RENEWED INTEREST IN WHERE OUR FOOD COMES FROM
Consumers are growing more food at home. An additional five million households report regularly digging in and planting compared to just six years ago.
Gardening is the number 1 hobby of women in the United States, with nearly 1 in 5 women reporting that they grow some of their own food, and one-third of millennials reporting that they are growing edibles – whether that’s a small pot of basil on the patio or a few raised beds with a variety of produce.
With this data as a guide, BHG’s Dinner Report shares on-trend recipes, up-and-coming ingredient information, and highlights the dinner-time rituals of foodies including cookbook author Katie Workman, TV host Joanne Weir, and cookbook author Heather Christo.
