BBC Good Food Magazine - 5 easy ways to connect when you’re isolated
Live Cooking Classes
What: in-person cookery classes might have taken a hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic, but there are several virtual alternatives. On Instagram TV, chefs at Borough Market’s Bread Ahead are doing online baking classes every day at 2pm; food blogger Kate Ailey of Cooking Carafes is holding ad hoc Italian-inspired ‘cook alongs’; and east London restaurant Officina 00 is hosting weekly pasta masterclasses. Fine dining fans should follow Italian Michelin-starred chef Massimo Bottura, who is running a cookery series called Kitchen Quarantine throughout the pandemic. And for recipes with sustainability at their core, chef Tom Hunt is doing weekly cookery demonstrations of recipes from his new book Eating For Pleasure, People and Planet. If you prefer a more formal structure, food teacher Angela Johnson (AKA Mrs Bun The Baker) from Oxfordshire, is running regular family-friendly cookery classes online with tickets sold through Eventbrite.
How: make sure you have your ingredients list ready (most of these will publish a list before, or you can watch retrospectively on Instagram stories). Clear the kitchen counter or table and put your laptop (or tablet) out the way so it doesn’t get dirty.

Price: IGTV free; Mrs Bun The Baker £3.90 per class.
