Londoners are sharing pictures of the best things they’ve cooked during lockdown

Great encouragement if you’ve got stuck in a cooking rut.

There’s a certain kind of Londoner who has turned their lockdown experience into their own personal ‘MasterChef’. Their only competition? Themselves (oh, and all the other people posting pictures of their dinner on Instagram.)

These new culinary whizzes have spent the past two months sautéeing, flambéeing, deep-fat frying, blitzing and mixing their way to restaurant-standard dinners, while the rest of us have been weighing up whether to get an oven pizza or a takeaway one.

We asked Londoners to show us the best thing they cooked in lockdown, and these cooks came out in their droves to share pictures of their most delicious dishes. Their pictures – of everything from meze to burgers to full englishes to a giant lemon meringue pie – are great encouragement if you’ve got stuck in a cooking rut.

Today we salute these cooks, for their tenacity, drive, ambition and ability to inspire us to, maybe, cook something too.
