Named by Forbes as one of the top seven travel podcasts Out Of Office is back with new episodes.

Hands up if you’re getting more creative in the kitchen right now? From sourdough bread to cocktails – cooking has been keeping a lot of us sane during these strange times and helped us feel more connected to the colourful destinations and cuisines we’re missing while travel is on hold.

On the flipside, local restaurants and bars have been hit hard as a result of COVID-19, with the hospitality industry facing huge losses and an unknown road ahead.

In this episode, we get under the skin of the power of food. We talk to Chef Priyanka – a Food Network award-winning vegan chef based in NYC – about the effects of COVID on the food industry, what she’s doing to support local businesses and how she’s bringing her passion for culinary cultures to her audience online.

We also chat with UK-based body confidence blogger and travel enthusiast Callie Thorpe about how cooking and experimenting at home is getting her through the toughest times.
