Some reasons why homemade food is always better than food from the majority of restaurants?

1) homemade food is made when using what and tastes like what you personally want it to. Restaurant food is designed to please a general audience.

2) when you take the time to create a meal for your loved ones the love you put into it makes it that much more special

3) homegrown and/or raised food sources are fresher and taste far better than store-bought ones
That being said, the best and freshest local products are sold directly to restaurants, not grocery stores. Also, restaurant cooks spend years learning, from mass repetition and mass production, how to create a refined, balanced and palate-pleasing experience. However, what I consider a restaurant and what most establishments that call themselves restaurants are two very different things. I believe in scratch-made. A restaurant should be scratch-made, from the best, freshest, locally sourced, in-season foods by trained professionals, to order, as ordered, when ordered. Reheating and serving precooked, par-cooked or previously frozen foods it fraudulent yet commonplace and vastly accepted.

I think there’s a lot of observational bias in that question.
No, it is not true that homemade food is always better than food in restaurants.

There are people who cook at home who are terrible at it, and there are many, many restaurants where the food is nothing short of spectacular – and not only the expensive ones either.

If you go to a place where they buy they food pre-prepared and frozen and use stuff that comes pre-cooked in bags and cans, sure, it will look and taste like crap, but the same goes for people who have no idea what to do with food whatsoever.

I have certainly eaten at friends’ houses where their mothers and grandmothers were terrible cooks.

Why Homemade is Better:


If there is one thing I’ve learned from living with a foodie, it’s that homemade dishes are always, always, always better.

Taste: In terms of the way a dish tastes, in comparison to restaurant-made or made at home, your food will always taste better… or should. This is subjective to circumstances of whether you can or cannot cook, but for argument’s sake, let’s assume you know how to follow a recipe and have some interest in cooking. If you have those two things, it’s safe to say your food will taste better than whatever you find inmost restaurants.

Nutrition: You’re the owner of your kitchen, you’re the creator of your meal, and you’re the one calling the shots, or pours, of olive oil, butter, other fats, carbs, additives, sugars, everything. You can add or subtract butter. You can add in a dollop of this, that, or none. You actually know what you’re eating because you’ve made the dish yourself.

Price: There is no debating that going to the grocery store nowadays is getting way out of control in terms of prices. Everything has gone way up and most of those overpriced food items are fresh vegetables and fruits. I’m a victim of overly priced veggies and fruits, just like everyone else, but I will still go out of my way to eat them. In no way should they NOT be the main star of your meals.
