The coronavirus pandemic has us stuck at home and looking for a way to cope.
For many people, it’s cooking.
“I think there is a silver lining to be found in all of this, and it might be found in the kitchen,” said Stacy Deasy, an American living in Wicklow, Ireland.
The proof is all over social media, with mouthwatering dishes being posted to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with hashtags such as #coronaviruscooking.
Deasy recently posted a picture of her chicken and dumplings to the NYT Cooking Community group that she’s a part of on Facebook.
“Food is comforting. Food is energy. Food can be healing. Those are important things right now more than ever,” she said.
Los Angeles resident Erik Dahlgren has had to work from home during the pandemic. But armed with a 25-pound bag of flour, he’s been experimenting with bread-making. He recently put a photo of freshly baked sourdough to his Instagram account.
“I need something to keep me busy, and baking always gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride,” he said. “Those are the kinds of things I need to get me through these lonely times we are all experiencing.”
Brenda McNicol had to cancel her 60th birthday party because of social-distancing measures in Edmonton, Alberta. But she still baked a cake for a virtual cocktail party, which she hosted on a video-conferencing app.
“I think food can serve as a vessel to bring people together, even when we can’t actually be around each other,” said Steve Roybal of Santa Rosa, California.

SUNDAY SAUCE  – “When Italian-Americans Cook”
 
A lot of people are really taking to cooking (1st time or whatever) since this horrible Pandemic started. Everyone has to eat, so why not cook fresh, tasty food, on your own, that you don’t have to worry about who touched it or what not, “Keep Safe.”
Anyway, everyone #Loves #ItalianFood and many people #LOVE my book SUNDAY SAUCE that is not only filled with Recipes for the best and most beloved Italian Dishes, I have written delightful little stories (true – non fiction) to go along with the recipes. I’ve been a Chef for more that 30 years, and I have written recipes that are easy to follow and execute. Many people have just gotten into cooking for the first time as a result of the current situation in America and all around the World. And others who had already known how to cook, are looking for new recipes and want to improve their culinary skills and increase the size of their repertoire. As a result, cookbook sales are booming. As for myself, my sales have increased over the same time period last year, but enough about all that.
All you need to know is that Sunday Sauce, and some of my other books like GOT ANY KAHLUA? aka The Big Lebowski  Cookbook are quite delightful, if I must say so myself; Great RECIPES and wonderful little antidotes and stories of the food and people within.
 
Thank You All,
Have a Wonderful Day, and Be Safe,
Daniel

VALENTINA HOT SAUCE
From
GUADALAJARA, MEXICO
 
 
 
Valentina has become my favorite Hot Sauce of the past 3 years or so .. I picked it up at a .99 Cent Store one day, a 12 oz. bottle is just $1.29, average price of Tabasco is about $3.99 for a 5 oz. bottle .. It would cost me about $9 for the same amount of Tabasco or more than 7 times more expensive .. Don’t get me wrong, I do love Tabasco and like its taste once and a while, it’s definitely distinctive and a good deal hotter, but now by most preferred Hot Sauce by far is VALENTINA from Mexico .. It’s not too hot, which for my personal taste I like ..  And the spices they use has a real nice flavor. And yes, Tabasco and some of the other brands are too dam expensive.

Before I started up with VALENEtINA I was using CRYSTAL HOT SAUCE from Louisiana for a while .. I like Hot Sauce from Louisiana and as we all know Tabasco can be a bit expensive as compare to Crystal and Valentina and some others, Crytal is way cheaper than Tabasco, but it is also a lot less hot and not as florvorful.  I did notice that in New Orleans Crytal is pretty popular and I saw it on many a restaurant table sometimes along with Tabasco and other bottles. I don’t use Crystal that much any more since I discovered my fave, Valentina … Sometimes I will have in the house; Tabasco, Valentina, and Crystal, and will mostley use Valentina, and Tabasco and Crystal here-and-there …  
My favorite is on Scramble Eggs with buttered Peas on the side for Breakfast or a lite lunch .. Sometimes when I make FRied Eggs I like to douse on a bit of “Maggi Seasoning” with Valentina as well. These make for some super tasty fried eggs. Try em!
