Chef Kerstin Rodgers is famous for her supper club in London, an activity she had to shut down on account of Covid. No work, no income, no partner to bring in an income. And yet, and yet, she has managed to put her culinary skills to pursposeful use during Lockdown in London by volunteering to cook for the National Health Service (NHS) and the recently created People’s Army, founded by 29 year-old Hazel Jhugroo (next time someone harps on about millenials I might become a little more voluble in their defence).
You know something? I haven’t mentioned Covid much in my last posts because, let’s face it, did I want to be yet another person putting in her two cents’ worth of on the dire situation or falling into the mire of stating the obvious? But there is one urge I do want to honour now and that is the very first ‘gut feeling’ I had when lockdown in Italy took off. “Something good will come of this,” I thought, “It might get worse before it gets better but something good will eventually come out of this.” And Kerstin is just one example.
Hats off to her and to the People’s Army.
Below is the link to her latest post with recipes.
