Across the world, people quarantining and isolating to manage the COVID-19 pandemic are cooking up a storm.
It happened quickly. They had plenty of customers last Wednesday, but on the weekend, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez announced a lockdown for 15 days, though it's likely to last longer.
Essential services like supermarkets, bakeries and butchers are still open.
Tornel explains, "They've [the government has] implemented new rules. Now, when you go to the supermarket, you have to queue outside and leave two metres between other customers."
He bought some of his favourite ingredients before the lockdown and goes food shopping as needed.
"Because we're stuck at home and bored, it's something that kills the boredom."
Erskine says, "Javier went full gourmet! We thought, if we are going to be stuck at home, we're going to do it right.
"There's a little Italian shop close to our house so he got fancy cheeses, canned tomatoes, dry pasta and different flour and semolina to make fresh pasta. We also got nice seafood."
"Usually, during the week, Javier will whip up something quick for dinner. But now that he has all the time in the world, he's like, 'I can try this and that, and things that take time'. And because we're stuck at home and bored, it's something that kills the boredom, it's better than vacuuming," says Erskine, laughing.
While they're making the most of the situation, they still find isolation difficult.
"We're going bananas," exclaims García Tornel, whose next project is to make rice flour noodles.
In New York, there's no lockdown yet, but many businesses like gyms and restaurants have closed.
Sydney-born Adam Moussa has been working from the East Harlem apartment he shares with his husband since last week.
He's done a lot of batch cooking (pulled pork, beans, etc.) and baking. As a senior social media manager for Eater, he buys and receives a lot of cookbooks, which are getting a good workout.
"My job has me sitting at my computer all day, so it's very easy to babysit a bake."
"But in flipping through my books and thinking about what to bake next, I want something snacky and homey so we can be taking bits off it over a day or two without feeling overwhelmed by sugar.
"So that likely means a tea cake-like Helen Goh's lemon poppyseed one from Sweet (I have made that a dozen times and it is the most soothing cake I can imagine)."
He also wants to use the extra time at home to learn something new.
"I plan to practice pâte sucrée and make a custard tart, which takes care of both my desire to build new skills and my need for something nostalgic like I grew up with in Sydney (shout out to the Glenorie Bakery custard tart, which I have eaten hundreds of since early primary school).
"Also planning to practice tortilla making at some point, which is something I've always thought about doing but never actually bothered with since there's a wealth of great Mexican food around me."
Cooking and sharing online
You might have noticed more people sharing photos and videos of their home cooking over the last few weeks. Cakes, bread, pasta and stews that are comforting and easily made with pantry staples seem especially popular.
Even some of the world's best chefs, like Massimo Bottura, are sharing online.
Encouraged by his daughter Alexa, the Italian chef has launched #KitchenQuarantine. Every night at 8 pm CET (6 am AEDT), he goes live on Instagram from his family home, making dishes like tortellini alla panna, Japanese soup and Thai curry.
"This is not a cooking show, it's just a way to share with people from all over the world," he explains in a video.
While we're well aware that baking a cake won't solve everything, it is proven to have positive effects on mental health. So we've put together a bunch of recipes, which might help you feel a little better:
If you do crave food you haven't cooked yourself, many of your favourite restaurants have turned to delivery and take-away so you can support them safely.
