A recent survey has concluded that today's British home cooks are more daring than the previous generation.
The Birmingham Food Fest (BFF) questioned a thousand British mothers and discovered that, on average, they know the recipes for 21 dishes without needing to check a cook book.
By contrast, say the study's publishers, mothers of 30 years ago knew only 17.
"[These findings] completely dispel the myth that today's mums aren't particularly into their food," said a statement from the BFF, quoted in The Guardian.
"Mums actually love to cook, love to see their families enjoying good hearty meals, and mums are becoming more adventurous with their cooking than ever before."
It added: "Today's mums aren't afraid to try their hands at producing more exotic delights – inspired by eating out, celebrity chefs and foodie events – which originate from places such as India, Thailand and China."
