With coronavirus sweeping the nation, people are being advised to work from home and restaurants are being mandated to close for in-dining experiences indefinitely.

Keeping yourself occupied and busy will absolutely be a challenge for some, so I wanted to share recipes from notable chefs across America that will keep you busy in the kitchen and you and your family happy and well-fed.

The lights may have got a little dimmer but here are (3) recipes from notable chefs from NYC, Vegas + San Diego to really heat up your kitchen.

Recognized as a Smart Catch Leader for Gaslamp’s Lionfish at Pendry San Diego (and Hotel Del Coronado’s Serẽa), Chef Ruiz showcases his seafood-centered cuisine through his James Beard accoladed cooking and preparation practices. Below he created a recipe for people to easily cook at home during this time of home quarantine. Chef Ruiz was recognized by the prestigious culinary foundation for the second time as a Smart Catch Leader for Lionfish for 2020, making both of his restaurants, Lionfish and Serea, the only two in San Diego to receive the recognition. Currently, Ruiz is within only 10 chefs of California’s estimated 76,000 restaurants to be recognized by Smart Catch and hold this respected honor.

Included are Executive Chef Joe Zanelli of Greene St. Kitchen at PALMS Casino Resort, and Bravo’s TOP Chef Tom Colicchio of Crafted Hospitality + The Jersey Tomato Co..
