Italians, you are in quarantine, not in Masterchef

As you know, we Italians are in quarantine. Guess how we spend our time?

After a week of quarantine, one in two Italians say they are already overweight (including me). We don't walk, the gyms are closed and, guess what the best way to spend time is? Yes, cooking!

And so on social media, there are plenty of photos, videos and jokes with a culinary theme.

"I just cook. Maybe I'll go to Masterchef"

"One thing we see that we are Italian even during the quarantine: we are all cooking. And today my mom decided to make pizza at home, to make us weigh a little less this evening at home."

"Quarantine. And immediately it's Masterchef!"

"And you? How many kilos are you?"

Then there is someone who does not take it well: "If I discover that you live with canned tuna and ready-made sauces, after you have broken my b***s with years of MasterChef with the cry of "Eh what does it take? You just need the time", I swear that once the quarantine is over I will beat you all up."

You know, he's got a point.

And, indeed, we have also done something tasty.

But that's not all: in addition to refining our cooking techniques, we read, draw, watch TV series, and we do flashmobs from the balconies. We keep busy, in short.

Strange things are also happening... all the girls have become fans of the our Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. You can see fancams on Twitter and photos with hearts on Instagram. I think it's some sort of Stockholm Syndrome, but hey, it's the quarantine, baby!

How are you staying entertained where you are in the world?

  • Carrying on as normal. Until the full details from today’s reviews are released. After that I’ll probably be doing ready steady cook with whatever is left in my flat.
