Chances are, you’re doing a lot of cooking right now. We’ve got you covered with recipes, but to make the whole experience a little more luxurious (and sustainable), many chefs and restaurateurs around the country are opening up their pantries and walk-in fridges to the public as their restaurants temporarily shutter or limit hours.

Whip up a batch of your favorite bolognese, throw a socially-isolated oyster party with a bottle of wine you’ve splurged on, or make incredible tortillas from the comfort and safety of your own kitchen. Here are just a few of our favorites, organized alphabetically by region.


2019 F&W Best New Restaurant Fox & The Knife is offering fresh campanelle, spaghetti, and bucatini by the pound, as well as pints of its legendary homemade bolognese and tomato basil sauces. In the mood for lasagna? Chef Karen Akunowicz is also sharing her incredible ricotta. Call the restaurant at 617-766-8630 to place a pick-up order.
