UO professor is making history, and meals, in the kitchen

Prof. Bayless points to “humanity’s historical relationship with cooking as an inspiration for people facing the chore of making 28 meals per week at home, with restaurants and takeout limited during the coronavirus outbreak. Cooking used to be a more social endeavor than it is today, she said, which helped reduce the kind of fatigue and frustration she’s seen many people experience through the heightened volume of pandemic cooking at home.”
