Our obsession with social media has killed family meals, Judge Marcus Wareing warns
- Master chef jury member Marcus Wareing has warned that technology kills meals
- Michelin-starred chef fears that people will spend too much time on smartphones
- He said that social media took people a lot of time from their day
Masterchef jury member Marcus Wareing blames Britain's obsession with social media for families who give up good cooking for buying supermarket meals.
Interviewed for BBC Radio 4's Desert Island discs, the Michelin-starred chef says he fears people will spend so much time on their smartphones and tablets that it disrupts eating habits.
& # 39; I blame social media, & # 39 ;, he tells host Lauren Laverne. & # 39; Because we want to reach so many people, we lose a lot of time, which means that something has to be done.

& # 39; Unfortunately, going to a supermarket and getting a ready-made meal is probably one of the easiest things you can do. It's lazy and we have to slow it down because it's not good for the waist either. & # 39;
The father of three, a judge at MasterChef: The Professionals since 2014, believes it is essential that future generations learn culinary skills.
& # 39; As a nation, we need to remind ourselves that we need to teach the next generation to cook so that they don't consistently take those ready meals, & # 39; he says.
Wareing also talks about his experiences with former friend and boss Gordon Ramsay. & # 39; I have worked with Gordon for so long, it is normal that I want to step out of the shade. Unfortunately we had to drop out because there was never a way to tell him, "I want to get out." & # 39;
Although he is the author of seven cookbooks, Wareing, 49, admits that he only reads one book a year – and he does so during his vacation.
