As the Caronavirus pandemic is keeping Americans at home in this uncertain time, people are understandably scared which leads to overbuying of food, purchasing of unhealthy foods and runs on items that make it hard for others to buy items they may need for their families.
Most people don't realize that they have all the food they need for the next several weeks right at home in their fridge and pantry. So Gannon and I want to help keep people at home for the next two weeks by initiating the #NextLevelChef challenge. Its very simple:
Take a photo of your fridge and your pantry:
Post your pictures on social media using the hashtag #NextLevelChef and tag Florida Politics or Peter Schorsch. Send an email to Gannon and me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a bunch of ideas on what you can make using the fresh ingredients in your fridge and pantry. You should be able to find recipes online based on our suggestions but if you need us to provide you with one we will even do that and post it on our blog.
By posting it online using the hashtag #NextLevelChef, our friends will be able to chime in on social media to give you ideas as well. Hopefully we can all help each other out limiting people's need to go to the store and limiting waste.
Our hope is that we can use this time of social distancing to help people who may not be as comfortable in the kitchen. Get your kids involved and trust us they will love cooking and will try new foods!
Step 1: Post your pictures on social media using #NextLevelChef
Step 2: Tag @floridapolitics and/or Peter Schorsch
Step 3: Email pictures to email@example.com
Step 4: Wait for meal ideas from us or from chefs across social media and use the leftover ingredients in your fridge to limit your trips to the grocery and help keep food available for those who need it most.
Together we can get through this pandemic and learn some new tricks in the kitchen at the same time! We will post recipes right here on the blog to help others who may have the same items in their fridge and pantries.
