At Feast, we focus on covering and promoting our region's culinary scene and encouraging growth in the industry — local restaurants and bars are the backbone of our magazine.

As the spread of COVID-19 continues to affect our community, our coverage will adapt to reflect how the industry is impacted and what that means for restaurants as well as consumers. On March 15, the CDC recommended cancelling or postponing in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the U.S., and with that in mind, we'll be shifting our coverage accordingly.

With many of our readers working from home and finding themselves with time to play around in the kitchen, we'll be sharing our favorite recipes from throughout the years. Maybe now's the time to finally master risotto, learn how to proof bread or make some fresh mozzarella. Want to brush up your knife skills? We've got a guide for that too.

We'll also be sharing ways to continue to support your favorite local restaurants in a safe and responsible way. Many restaurants are increasing their options for carryout, delivery and curbside pickup, so you can still get your favorite burger or pizza and support these vital small businesses while observing the CDC's recommendations. Restaurants are also encouraging diners to purchase gift cards, apparel and merchandise, much of which can be ordered online. 

During this uncertain and unprecedented time, we hope to be a resource for both home cooks and local business owners alike. We'll do our best to stay on top of events as they unfold. Please feel free to drop us a line at editor@feastmagazine.com if you have a suggestion for coverage.
