I think it's a crime when parents don't teach their children how to cook. Then it gets lost. The art gets lost. Everyone knew how to cook at one point, not too long ago, before there were microwaves and restaurant chains. So there's no reason that the skills shouldn't have been passed down through the generations...no reason at all. It makes me ashamed of my society/generation because they can't do these things that I've been around for most of my life.
