5 Chefs To Follow To Go On A Cooking Adventure While On Lockdown

The deadly coronavirus has everyone on lockdown. People are being advised to self-quarantine, and many governments have imposed lockdowns. When you’re locked inside the house for too long, you get bored with the homemade food, and you crave junk food. Dominos, Taco Bell, Wendy’s, Burger King, Chipotle. All of these provide happiness and comfort that homemade food fails to provide after a point. And since most of us aren’t chefs, we can’t add a twist to make these dishes interesting!

However, coronavirus has forced all of these outlets to shut down their services. To ensure the safety of their employees, no junk food can be ordered in.

Does this mean that you’re going to have to eat the same 5 meals every day until the lockdown ends?

Absolutely not!

This time can be used to brush up on your cooking skills experiment with new dishes every day.
