Cooking Couples


Let’s be honest, social distancing at home is hard enough, but for those couples who are cohabitating, spending 24/7 with your partner could potentially put a little strain on any relationship. It’s imperative to find activities to do with your partner to spice up the monotony of being at home constantly.

In New Orleans, food is an important element to anything and everything that happens in the city. And with a few local entities offering free online classes, why not take the opportunity to have a date night at home?

The New Orleans Culinary and Hospitality Institute (NOCHI) is offering a few options for the home chef. The “Cooking in Quarantine with NOCHI” newsletter includes a shopping list and a link to sign up for cooking in quarantine specials scheduled throughout April.

The Southern Food and Beverage Museum is posting a lot of videos on its social media channels that are geared towards children, but (Kelly here) if you’re like me, something designed for the skill level of a child could be just as challenging. The latest post was a chocolate chip cookie recipe that would be a perfect addition to your NOCHI online class meal.

Local baker Joy Wilson, aka Joy the Baker, has multiple options for those wanting to perfect their at-home culinary skills. Not only does Wilson have recipes directly on her page and social media platforms, but she also is transforming her in-house The Bakehouse classes to virtual Bakehouse Live events. There are three scheduled throughout April and you can sign up here.
