THings to cook-

Being stuck at home does come with a few benefits, such as having more time to make new meals and try new recipes.

Whether it’s a family meal or a sweet treat, there’s always plenty of new things to try.

We asked the team at Kinetic what new recipes they've tried or cooking resources they've found useful, and here's the list!

1) Advantgardevegan

3) Dalgona coffee

The Korean coffee drink taking the internet by storm, dalgona coffee is like a cappuccino turned on its head, with the frothy coffee on top and the milk underneath. It only requires three ingredients to make and you can have it hot or cold.
