KUOW home chefs are cooking through the crisis

We asked and you responded.

KUOW food reporter Ruby de Luna and arts and culture reporter Marcie Sillman wondered what recipes you’ve turned to for comfort during the coronavirus crisis. Marcie is a stress baker; Ruby reached back to her Taiwanese/Filipino childhood for the recipes she loves.

We wanted to know how cooking or baking is helping you cope, so we posted our food photos on the KUOW Facebook page and asked you to join us.

Wow, we got a deluge of responses!

More than 60 of you sent us photos of amazing kitchen creations: a magazine-cover worthy sourdough bread, from Kirsten Collins.
