Maryland Woman Loses 15 Pounds During Quarantine Cooking All Meals at Home Using This Service

For the past three months, the coronavirus pandemic has changed life as we knew it. Arguably, one of the places changed most by the virus has been our kitchens. With grocery stores facing supply chain shortages and the majority of restaurants closed or only offering carryout options, we’ve been forced to fend for ourselves and make most of our meals at home. It hasn’t been easy for anyone, but imagine cooking virtually every meal—breakfast, lunch, and dinner—for these past few months without having a dishwasher.

Not only has Lori Dominick, 54, of Green Belt, Maryland, done just that, but she also managed to lose weight in the process, thanks in large part to her Cooking Light Diet meal plans. She hasn’t just been making it work. She’s been thriving.

From food parcels to hot dinners, this is how charities are rallying to feed children without free school meals

Thousands of families across the country breathed a collective sigh of relief this week. The government’s backtracking on the withdrawal of its school meal voucher scheme (thanks, in part, to footballer Marcus Rashford’s campaign) was a triumph for many. But while these £15-a-week vouchers (designed only to cover five lunches a week) are a step in the right direction, they fail to plug – by a long shot – the gaping hole in our food system that’s burdening millions of children.

Covid-19 has impacted the UK’s food landscape in ways that are difficult for many of us to comprehend. For others, the fallout couldn’t be more tangible. There are 2.4 million children living in households with unreliable access to food. Of those, 2 million have either relied on low-cost food or unbalanced meals, not had enough to eat, or skipped meals altogether.

In the Finale, the Winner Proved Fusion Cooking Isn’t Just Some Lame ’80s Fad

This season we’re recapping every episode of Top Chef All Stars Los Angeles. You can check out who had to pack their knives and go last week.

In a season honoring Los Angeles, one LA legend was noticeably absent: Wolfgang Puck. Sure, snooty New Yorkers may like to make sport of disrespecting the chef to the stars who became a star himself. But he’s much more important to late 20th century American dining than his east coast critics give him credit for. In the 1980s at his hit restaurant Spago, and especially at Chinois on Main, Puck helped usher in era of fusion cuisine by merging Asian and European traditions. Perhaps some of the dismissal of Puck is simply a residual hatred of what that trend devolved into: sushi tacos at Guy Fieri’s Tex Wasabi’s.

Juneteenth is a widely celebrated holiday that commemorates the last slaves being freed in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865 — more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

As with most holidays, food is an integral part of the celebration. Red drinks and foods like strawberries and watermelon are traditional, as they represent strength and perseverance in bondage. Barbecued meats and soul food round out the offerings of this shared meal gathering.

With most of the country in phases of reopening, you may not be able to attend a large barbecue or dine out in celebration today. We’re bringing the restaurant experience to you with our 3D chef’s table. Chef, television host and cookbook author Carla Hall shares three of her favorite recipes in augmented reality.
