Artist (and RADII contributor) Krish Raghav has just had a beautiful new work published in The New Yorker. Entitled “Quarantine Cooking: Finding Relief from Coronavirus Anxiety in the Kitchen,” it looks at one of the many ways that people under quarantine in China have looked to alleviate the boredom and uncertainty that comes with spending long periods indoors amid alarming reports of the spread of a deadly virus.

The story of culinary-themed catharsis in the midst of coronavirus is told with the kind of warmth, insight, and visually-pleasing presentation that are hallmarks of Krish’s work. It also weaves together food art, Laoganma chili sauce, and even a reference to Wuhan band Chinese Football.
