I was raised on real food and think cooking at home is an important life-skill that is being subverted and undermined.
If things continue the way they seem to be going the simple act
of cooking will become the "alchemy" of the next generation. I started cooking when I was 15 and my first meal was a complete roast goose dinner for Thanksgiving.
I love cooking for people who love to eat real, healthy food with loads of flavor but little or no salt added. Salt is a preservative and
if you use fresh meat and a few herbs and spices you really do not need salt (or sugar-the salt substitute of choice these days).
