How Can Design Make People Want to Cook?

For my self directed honours project, I am planning on looking into how design can make people want to cook.

I plan to set out to find out about different aspects of cooking, from cultural and social aspects to environmental and health related aspects.

I plan on finding out the answers to questions such as;

Why do people cook?

When do people cook?

Are people more likely to cook socially or by themselves?

What barriers prevent people from cooking?

Do people get excited about cooking?

Do people have habits when cooking?

etc. etc.

I will do some probes into this and keep asking questions.
