COLORNO, ITALY – JANUARY 28: Master Chef Fabio Bertoni, of Il Forno Bertoni bakery in Montichiari, mixes some flour as he teaches a bread making technical class during the advanced course of Italian cuisine at the Alma International School of Italian Cuisine in Colorno on January 28, 2006 in the outskirts of Parma, Italy. The Alma school was founded by Italian Master Chef Gualtiero Marchesi, with the aim of creating professionals in Italian cuisine at the very highest level. The school calls on a highly respected body of tutors, some of the very best connoisseurs of Italian produce, local wine, pastry chefs, culinary historians and nutrition experts, to train the very top level of chefs in the catering industry worldwide.

Now that we’ve all become semi-experts on making sourdough bread, what other foods are people cooking and baking the most in quarantine? USA Today crunched some Google data and found that the following are the six most-searched food terms on the platform:

  • Banana bread
  • Meatloaf
  • Pancakes
  • Oatmeal cookies
  • Baked ravioli
  • Sourdough crackers


Me personally, I’ve been googling and putting my air fryer I got for Christmas to excellent use. I don’t have any pictures for documentation but here’s some meals I’ve made along with the recipes:

  • Fried Chicken – SO GOOD! I highly recommend jumping on the buttermilk (mixing it with hot sauce of course) train instead of using the usual egg yolk.
  • Deep Fried Oreos – Super fire and prolly the easiest and fastest recipes I made. Perfect way to get that carnival food fix (if anyone gets that).
  • Sweet Potato Fries – Didn’t include the recipe because I bought the frozen ones and took only about 15 minutes to cook!
  • Onion Rings – Now this one was HARD and didn’t come out like the ones you get at restaurants, I saw another recipe where the froze them for about 10 minutes then throwing them in. Still tasty regardless.
