We all feel like we’ve been trapped in our homes for a long time now. The spread of COVID around the world over the course of the past year, alongside government guidelines and regulations that have been put in place to slow the spread of the virus has resulted in many of us being housebound and with little to do. Now that vaccines are being rolled out around the world, many of us are looking forward to things getting back to normal. If you’re a foodie and you’re looking for a way to celebrate, here are a few ideas that you can plan for when things start to reopen and we can start really enjoying ourselves again!
Dining out and picking up takeaway meals is all good and well. However being able to prepare and make delicious dishes yourself will prove to be a lifelong skill that will put a smile on your face day in and day out. So why not attend a cooking class once we can spend time with people from outside of our households again? There are all sorts of classes out there, so no matter what you what to learn, there’s bound to be something to tick all of your boxes. You could try french cuisine. You could attend chocolate making classes. You can learn how to prepare and roll your own sushi. You could learn how to make delicious and nutritious vegan meals. The list goes on!
Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or you have an occasional glass of red at home, a wine tasting session can prove to be a great day out that you and someone close to you can really enjoy. Wine tasting can take place in a local wine store, a local restaurant that holds classes, or you could even head away to a far off vineyard to really make the most of it! In the classes can also learn a lot about wine, from how it’s created, which grapes have which flavors, what wines from different regions are like, what conditions impact taste, what impacts value, how to store your wine, and much more. This is great not only for choosing the right wine to suit your individual tastes and preferences, but for general knowledge too!
