If self-isolation has you suddenly inspired to be the next Nigella or Jamie, rest-assured you’re not alone.
As people adjust to spending more time in their homes, a wave of new hashtags have surfaced, such as #quarantinecuisine and #isolationbaking, revealing the aspiring cooks among us.
Despite being temporarily closed, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is getting amongst the trend, taking to Instagram to share ‘pantry clean-out’ recipes from its team of chefs who are currently cooking at home.
The first recipe is homemade gnocchi from MCEC sous chef Jessica Cabral, and can be found on MCEC’s Instagram page and stories.
Here’s a sneak peek:
