Cooking Under Quarantine

Stopping by the corner store for an extra onion or a last-minute bottle of wine is just not going to cut it anymore. Many of us are quarantined or sheltering-in-place with fewer food options. So, how are Patrick and Ruth making the most with what they have? They talk to Charles Duan and Jenny Gao, two creative home cooks who never let any ingredient go to waste. Also, they chat with Derek Brown about his Twitter mission to write people custom cocktail recipes, and his suggestions for enjoying them mindfully. Read a transcript. Jenny and Charles' Bolognese, aka "The Godfather Sauce" This won't be your traditional recipe, but follow your instincts like Jenny and Charles do! Brown pork shoulder in cast iron skillet and add to pressure cooker. Cook onions, garlic, veggies from freezer like carrots and celery in a pan until soft, and add to pressure cooker.
