My Pandemic Diary

In early 2020 New York City, like most of the nation, was abruptly locked down as an urgent response to the deadly Coronavirus. For the following eighty-five days, Kate McDonough shared her experiences of grocery shopping and daily cooking during a time of isolation and anxiety, when she, like everyone else, was longing to return to life as it was before Covid. While the lockdown was eventually lifted and a new normal emerged, these daily diaries are a way to remember what this time was like, both in and out of the kitchen.
