The Coronavirus may have stopped people from eating out at restaurants for the time being. That doesn’t mean you can’t indulge your culinary interests, though. Streaming platforms have plenty to offer when it comes to food-themed content, and now seems like the perfect time to binge some of those shows. There are a few food shows that we think are the ideal way to escape the current news cycle.
