Kitchen Advice During a Time of Social Distancing


People are being encouraged to stay at home as much as possible as the Covid-19 outbreak continues to spread, and restaurants have been ordered to close their doors and only offer delivery or pickup, so many people are finding themselves in the kitchen more than usual.

We’re getting some tips for cooking with what you've got on hand, and items to consider getting to weather what could turn out to be a long stretch at home.

We’re joined Chef James Fraser, he's an instructor in Florida Gulf Coast University's School of Resort & Hospitality Management.

We kick off the show with an excerpt from The Zest Podcast from WUSF in Tampa.

Mike Kiniry is producer of Gulf Coast Live, and co-creator and host of the WGCU podcast Three Song Stories: Biography Through Music. He first joined the WGCU team in the summer of 2003 as an intern while studying Communication at Florida Gulf Coast University. 
Julie Glenn is the News Director and the host of Gulf Coast Live. She joined the WGCU team in November of 2016 to expand the Gulf Coast Live call-in radio show from once a week to five days a week.  Since then, the show has been recognized in state and regional competitions and has featured artists, political leaders, historians, environmental experts, doctors, local reporters, and national and international scholars. After leading the station's award-winning coverage of Hurricane Irma in September of 2017, Julie was named Interim News Director. In January of 2018, she launched WGCU's first podcast: Grape Minds.
