When you think about comfort food, Covid-19 themed cookies and burgers are the last things that come to mind. But a few chefs are turning to humour to help cope with the scale of what we are currently facing.
Hopefully, these pictures will bring a smile to your face!
The Schuerener Backparadies bakery in western Germany, added two different coronavirus themed creations to its selection: biscuits with a face mask emoji and toilet roll shaped cakes. The bakery is situated in the city of Dortmund in Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia region, and is owned by Tim Kortuem. It is currently making 200 toiler paper roll cakes every day – proving they are a solid hit. The new additions are allowing the bakery to stay in business, which if open for pick up and delivery.
Hoang Tung, the chef at Pizza Home, in Hanoi, Vietnam has created a coronavirus themed burger which features green-tea stained buns with tiny “crowns” designed to look like microscopic images of the virus, to take the fear out of the infectious disease. The take-out place is selling more than 50 burgers on a daily basis.
“We have this joke that if you are scared of something, you should eat it,” Tung told Reuters.
Jean-François Pré, a pastry chef and chocolatier in France, has created intricately detailed Easter eggs based on the virus itself. The chocolate eggs are painted black, and dotted with red painted almonds. The chef aimed for the easter eggs to bring humour into the situation after growing “tired of hearing” about coronavirus. Jean-François Pré stated selling the easter eggs at his shop in Landivisiau, earlier in the month, prior to the lockdown.
Donuts Delite in Rochester, New York has made infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci the face of one of its doughnuts – literally. “We wanted to find a way to cheer up the people in our neighborhood,” owner Nick Semeraro told CNN.
“We loved his message and how thorough he was, and how he kept everyone informed during the crisis … so we wanted to give back and say thanks.”
