Everyone is coping in their own way with coronavirus lockdowns around the world. Some are setting up home gyms or turning to board games to pass the time. Others are brushing up on their baking skills and have begun making bread while in quarantine. Sourdoughs seem to be particularly popular among the new bakers.

When you’re on quarantine and the grocery stores are picked over, you don’t get to be picky if the frozen bread turns into a fail. Doesn’t taste half as bad as it looks though! pic.twitter.com/Yn95SojBkn— Rob Nelson (@rnelson0) March 14, 2020

Day 40 of quarantine: my 4000th loaf of sourdough bread is in the oven. My apartment walls are now held up by bread. I sleep on a bread bed and use bread pillows at night. I spend my days scouring the internet for new bread recipes. There is only bread.— honest jabe (@jaynooch) March 26, 2020
