Celebrity Chefs Are Bringing Their Recipes to Pinterest so You Can Be a Better Home Cook
The coronavirus pandemic has truly changed our daily lives. Since mid-March, people around the world switched up their work routines, canceled travel plans, and, according to Pinterest, starting cooking at home a lot more often. As the social media site explains, searches for “easy at-home recipes” have increased 12-fold over the last few months. And because you’re searching for it, Pinterest wants to help you become even more skilled in the kitchen with its new Chefs at Home series.
The series will give culinary fans a peek into the home kitchens of the country’s top chefs. There, chefs like Andrew Zimmern, Kwame Onwuachi, and Stephanie Izard will share their favorite dishes and how you can make them at home, too.
But Pinterest isn’t stopping at helping you improve your cooking skills. With the new program, it’s also aiming to assist the restaurant industry, too, by donating $300,000 in free advertising to raise awareness and funding for the National Restaurant Association Educational Fund, Relief Opportunities for All Restaurants, No Kid Hungry, and Harlem Grown.
Want a taste of what’s to come? This week kicked off with celebrating Black chefs from home, featuring Kia Damon’s lemon chickpea salad, Tanya Holland’s rhubarb citrus upside-down cake, Chef JJ’s shoulder pork noodles, and Kwame Onwuachi’s own recipe for peel-and-eat shrimp, to name a few.
In week two of the series, Lucas Sin will share his favorite go-to snacks. Week three will see Kia Damon’s best breakfast recipes, while in week four, Adiana Urbina will share her favorite comfort foods.
In week five, Dominique Ansel shares his favorite baked goods and, in week six, Andrew Zimmern will share his best summer recipes. Want to see them all? Check out Pinterest’s Today Tab every week to see all the new recipes, Pin them to your own boards, and test out your favorites.
