It’s impossible to talk about anything at all without coming back to the current events. But it’s heartwarming to see how we’ve all assumed roles and organized ourselves virtually.
Food is the invisible thread that’s connecting all of us together. Chefs have opened up their kitchen to us literally, farmers have began directly supplying to people, some of us have began growing our own food, and most of us have stepped into the kitchens with new found determination.
Be it the ritual of gathering around the table with your family, or virtually catching up with friends over a meal, it’s all reinstating the power of food in our lives.
It’s the perfect time to think about our relationships with food, learn about the important role we as consumers play in the food value chain, about those who struggle to put food on our tables.
How can we make smart food choices that help people, the planet and ourselves?Stay Curious (and safe),

Has the pandemic pushed more men into the Indian kitchen?
It’s 21st century and women still carry most of the domestic
burden. More men in the Indian kitchen is great, but please clean up after!
Getting through the pandemic together with some company in the kitchen is definitely something we could use. Online food communities do that and a lot more.
