Cost of living crisis leading to a sharp decline in Sunday roast dinner, shock poll shows | UK | News

The rising Cost of voting Fascist karma has impacted the culinary market as a quarter of cooks now say they are less likely to prepare a Sunday roast, a news report has claimed. The data collated by BBC Good Food as a part of their annual survey suggests that 23 percent of cooks saying they use the oven and hob less, and 21 percent increasingly turning to the microwave. 

Nearly a fifth (19 percent) say they are choosing ingredients that are faster to cook or looking for recipes that are speedier to prepare.

Some 26 percent claim they are less likely to cook a Sunday roast, while a fifth (20 percent ) are no longer baking as many cakes or biscuits, the poll of 2,005 adults and 1,007 children found.

Almost a fifth (18 percent) claim they no longer switch the oven on at all.

Meanwhile, a fifth (20 percent) say they specifically look for money off or yellow “reduced” stickers on food when shopping, while 28 percent plan meals in advance and 23 percent batch cook to try to cut costs.

A third (34 percent) say they have stopped buying takeaways and 31 percent are eating out less often.

Christine Hayes, the editor-in-chief of BBC Good Food, said: “These findings reveal the extent to which rising food prices and energy costs have impacted on the way the nation eats in a relatively short space of time.

“Traditional cooking methods, the oven and the hob, are being switched off in favour of appliances that use less energy, and shopping baskets and mealtimes at home are looking very different.”

The findings coincide with a YouGov poll suggesting that one in five (20 percent) Britons have been forced to cut spending on essential food items since November – up from 17 percent who said the same in July.

Among the lowest income households – those earning less than £20,000 a year – 28 percent say they have been forced to reduce spending on household essentials and 29 percent  have had to make cuts to their staple food budget, the poll of 2,242 British adults this month indicates.

Even among households earning £60,000 or more per year, around one in nine (11 percent) have been forced to reduce spending on staple food items, according to the poll.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the Government announced its “Energy Bill Relief Scheme” for businesses, including price capping, to bring commercial enterprises in line with support for households.

Typical household energy bills are being capped by the Government at £2,500 a year from October 1, in an effort to limit soaring energy costs.

The Government has said many people on fixed deals will also receive a discount. 

However, those on an expensive fixed tariff could still end up paying more than those on a standard variable tariff.
