Episode 35 – Cooking during the lockdown

I didn’t think my way of cooking would change much during the lockdown. I thought I was already quite organised, with a well-stocked pantry, responsible in using my ingredients and leftovers and creative when it comes to improvising. Yet, in more than a month of lockdown, I noticed some changes that made me reflect on my approach to cooking.

First of all, now I am cooking mainly for the two of us: this is the first time since we’re together, it feels very intimate.

In this episode, we will talk about how I reorganized my pantry and my freezer, about the importance of planning ahead and focusing on what you have, rather than on what you are missing, with recipes along the way.

I’d be curious to know if the lockdown changed your way of cooking and of organizing your pantry, fridge and freezer, which are the recipes you’re making more often and if you’ve learnt something new.

  1. Thank you so much. As we settled into pandemic life here in the USA, I started looking for podcasts to listen to on my long walks. And I am so happy I found “Cooking with an Italian accent”. Your stories, recipes, interviews and musings on life and food were the perfect escape. I am just a few episodes from catching up, and am now waiting to listen to them because I’m not ready to wait for a new podcast. Like many people my work has come to a halt (I’m an actress, mostly on stage) but my other creative outlet is cooking and gardening. We’ve traveled extensively throughout Italy, and I am now waiting for the time we can return and have more amazing experiences. Hopefully we will be able to take one of your cooking and shopping courses. Congratulations on your new baby. I have a new grandson who I have yet to meet. Again. Thank you and wishing you and your family all the best.
