Along with binge-watching Netflix and redecorating their apartments, Americans everywhere have gotten in touch with their inner chefs during the pandemic, spending more time than ever cooking at home. But, as the novelty of staying at home wears off, you might be finding it harder and harder to get excited about cooking at home – and, your bank account may have the delivery charges to prove it. Get back on the wagon with these suggestions.
Treat yourself to a new cookbook.
Sure, finding recipes online may be convenient, but there’s nothing quite as inspiring as flipping through the pages of a new cookbook, with their glossy, full-size images and unique flavor profiles. Fall and winter are usually when you’ll find new cookbooks on the shelves of your local bookstore – so, as we enter spring, there’s no better time to visit your favorite bookseller and see what’s new.
Try a meal prepping kit.
These days, there’s a subscription box for everything, including meal prep. No matter your dietary needs or personal taste, there’s a company out there that will deliver all you need to cook a delicious gourmet meal at home. These kits eliminate the question of, “What should I cook for dinner tonight?” With step-by-step instructions, also make it easy for you to get back into the rhythm of cooking.
Enroll in a virtual cooking class.
There’s nothing like throwing yourself into a new and unfamiliar situation to force yourself out of a culinary rut. Why not jump on the latest foodie trend and try a virtual cooking class? Usually held over a video conferencing platform, like Zoom, these programs place you face-to-face with a chef, nutritionist, or other experts who will teach you both new cooking techniques and a delicious recipe.
