Given how smartphones are everywhere these days, it may not be a surprise that for the majority of home cooks viewing food online is a daily or weekly routine. But millennials take the cake! For 51% of millennials, who are most likely to be glued to their smartphones, viewing food content is a daily habit. Cooks today have access to an endless supply of cooking information—whether to satisfy a sweet tooth or to travel via their taste buds to cultures far away from home. This effortless accessibility of food information and instruction is creating a generation of cooks with a heightened level of excitement about cooking.
