We’d argue Bristol has some of the most exciting chefs in the country. From Michelin-approved restaurants to glorious food trucks, every craving is catered for. This Christmas, Bristol’s imaginative chefs have created some fabulous festive foods too that we can’t get enough of.
But when it comes to Bristol’s home cooks, it seems the same sort of creative spark just isn’t quite there, especially at Christmas. Bristolians have been named the worst at cooking Christmas dinner in the UK, in a new study by delivery service Getir. Which is quite embarrassing, to say the least.
By looking at a year’s worth of Google search habits across the country, the study found the most populated cities with the most amount of searches for relevant Christmas dinner-themed search terms. The study also took into account the number of searches in comparison to the overall population. All to determine which UK residents struggle with Christmas dinner the most.
At the top of the study was Bristol. Last year, there were 110,810 searches related to cooking a Christmas dinner or its trimmings. On average, that means there were 235 searches per 1000 people in the city. Most common searches revolved around cooking a turkey and gammon.
It means Bristol beat both of Scotland’s biggest cities Glasgow (103,400 searches) and then Edinburgh (79,560 searches). Both cities, finishing second and third respectively, struggled with turkey and Brussel sprouts.
According to the study, the likes of Cardiff, London and Birmingham are some of the nation’s better, or at least more confident, home cooks. As they had the least volume of Christmas dinner-related searches.
