Can't cook, will cook

Cooking

Many of us are entering uncharted territory in more ways than one. Now the restaurants and pubs are off the social menu, quite a few will be venturing into the kitchen for the first time in a while and far more often than we would like.

Have no fear. ‘Can’t cook, will cook’ is here. Please send us your favourite family recipes or signature comfort dishes and we will share them with your fellow Property Week readers.

Culture Club

Diverse people reading books

We can’t go to the cinema, restaurants, pubs or clubs, the theatre or the shops. What can we do? We can read, watch TV and listen to podcasts and music, that’s what. But where to start? How about with some recommendations from the Property Week community?

Please send us your top book, Netflix and music picks and we will post them here. They can be as high or lowbrow, funny or tragic, relaxing or dramatic as you like – although perhaps steer clear of anything too depressing or apocalyptic, I don’t know, like the 2011 movie Contagion.

Please send them to our Twitter and LinkedIn using #PWCovid19help including a few lines on why you’ve picked them and, if you can, a picture of the book, programme, podcast presenters or musicians you’ve picked. Happy reading, watching and listening!
