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.

Hi mates! I’m in bed so sick and miz and I’m in a fury at myself because I managed to keep fighting getting sick before Christmas through mainlining these… and then Christmas happened. Then I just got out of the habit. Anyway, tomorrow I’ll get back on it. It’s for my IMMUNE BOOSTER and I bet you didn’t know this about turmeric… In the cold months you can get the same, if not more from your juice by warming it up, as when heating turmeric up gently, it actually increases its health benefits by making the curcuminoids more readily absorbed by the body. Here I’ve used the Bluicer by @sageappliancesuk to both juice and blend the perfect tonic for winter health… INGREDIENTS • 5 lemons, peeled • 6 apples • large piece fresh root ginger about the size of your hand • 3 roots of fresh whole turmeric • 7 tbsp honey • 1⁄4 tsp cayenne • generous grinding of black pepper • 1 stick of cinnamon per serving STEP 1 Turn the juicing function to soft fruit and juice the lemons STEP 2 Turn the juicing function up to hard and juice the apples, ginger and turmeric. STEP 3 Remove the juicing attachment and fix on the blending jug. Add in the honey and cayenne and blitz together STEP 4 Transfer the mixture into a saucepan, add in the cinnamon sticks, and bring to the boil then turn off immediately STEP 5 Ladle into glasses and serve with a slice of lemon, apple and a cinnamon stick #createwithsage #ad
