  • 1. 2013 Trends: What Global Families are Cooking and Eating Allrecipes surveyed thousands of cooks worldwide to discover global digital food trends. In this report, we are pleased to share the findings of Allrecipes’ 2013 Global Digital Cooking Trends Survey where we investigated the shopping, cooking, and eating behaviors of home cooks on a global scale. Cooks around the world shared what is important to them, what inspires them, and which items land in their shopping cart and on their dinner tables. As digital technologies evolve, so do planning, prepping, and ultimately, consumption behaviors. To compile the 2013 Global Food Trends Measuring Cup Report, Allrecipes surveyed home cooks in the 13 largest of our 18 global communities.* Health concerns, desire for greater meal variety, and a love of cooking are why cooking at home is growing in markets around the world. Top findings include:Insight #1: We Are More Alike Than DifferentCooks around the globe are preparing more meals at home compared to a year ago Who’s cooking?(80% cook daily).
