Get Ready for the Top Chef Chimp Edition
A new research reveals that chimps have all the ingredients in them that enable them to cook their food without using fire. Anyone who looked at the raw antelope thought that it could be a good roast. There is a sophisticated thought process behind this. It helps you to convert a raw meat without using fire. It helps you to plan the process of cooking and you just need to wait for the food to get cooked. All the process is carried in such a way that it is thought to be carried out by human beings only.
A recent study shows that chimpanzees also have emotional and cognitive ability. This means that chimps also have mental skills that are required for cooking. Cooking is a trait that is required for one’s survival. Whether we cook antelopes or starchy tubers like potatoes and this makes us set apart from all the other animals. Cooking had begun a long back and ever since then we have perfected in the art of cooking. We have also made food such that digestion becomes easy. It becomes easy for animals to extract more food and helps in development of the brains.
Cooking is not only about meat, potatoes and fire. It is also about transportation of food and planning how to cook and many other things. These are highly complicated as it also involves many other processes. Chimpanzees love having cooked food rather than having raw food.
