Are you a bad cook?  Here are the top cities where you’ll fit right in:  Someone looked at Google searches in America’s 50 biggest cities to see which ones have the worst cooks.

The results are based on how many people have been googling VERY basic things, like “How to preheat an oven” and “What’s a whisk?”

According to the results, the 10 cities with the most clueless cooks are:  Cleveland . . . Pittsburgh . . . Seattle . . . Madison, Wisconsin . . . Lubbock, Texas . . . Portland, Oregon . . . Austin . . . Minneapolis . . . Atlanta . . . and Nashville.

New Orleans clocked in with the lowest number of bad cooks.  Then it’s Lincoln, Nebraska . . . Sacramento . . . San Francisco . . . and Philadelphia.

They also polled 2,000 people and asked what’s preventing them from becoming a good cook.  The top answers were “not enough time,” and “I’m too lazy.”
