Yummiest Quarantine Recipes Shared by Fashion Designers

Designers are creative people, hence their ability to infuse everything around them with beauty and aesthetics. Within the fashion industry we know of many creatives who excel at decor and cooking, or just at decorating the table and the dishes. Art de la Table is one of their creative outlets in their busy daily schedules that currently include many online virtual meetings. Amid a pandemic that imposes self-isolation, these designers are prepping their meals to perfection and are generous enough to share their sources or own recipes, so that we become part of their effort at domestic bliss. A yummy recipe can cheer us up and designers who care for their colleagues and clients are contributing to that direction. Quarantine food is a tricky topic because some people are not in the mood to cook or do anything. Yet the novel coronavirus made us think of ways to overcome sadness, frustration, and awkwardness in unexpected ways. Cooking is keeping us busy, and it’s ultimately fun. Covid-19 hopefully won’t stay for long with us, yet our post-quarantine life might find us with some new culinary skills. Designers encourage you to experiment with flavors by mixing together ingredients that are available at home. They show you the path towards improvisation in the kitchen. Easter, birthdays, and other celebrations will be experienced via homemade food that is put together with love. Some of the designers borrow expertise from professional chefs, but this is the whole point; sharing and learning in the process.
