🍪🦠Corona Chronicles #4 : Baking Through A Pandemic🦠🍞 . ‘So why did baking become such a pandemic sensation? Dissecting this question is as laborious as following a sourdough recipe. Maybe because there was more time at hand to indulge in it. Maybe we missed our café staples, along with our favourite hot drinks. Maybe because its one of those rare activities that can keep our children engaged for more than one whole minute. Maybe it was the dopamine hit from dropping off sweet treats on the doorsteps of loved ones. Maybe it was simply to avoid going out of the house. Maybe it was our inner chemist marvelling at the magic of risen dough. Maybe it was a coping mechanism to deal with all the uncertainty – baking has been linked to stress release, offering “cognitive behaviour therapy” that improves our problem-solving skills. Whatever the reason, baking has emerged as one of pandemic’s most rewarding activities.’ ⠀⠀ Link in bio for full blog post. 🙃 . Have you been stress baking through the pandemic?
