Padma Lakshmi has been known to bake a beautiful berry pie. The Bravo's Top Chef judge uses all the classic ingredients in her home-baked goods, including mounds of fresh berries. But unlike a strictly traditional dessert, Padma's goodies tend to come with pointed public service announcements.
After baking up a pie that said, "Close the Camps," on the Fourth of July last year, Padma whipped up a similar self-quarantine treat. In her May 7 Instagram Stories, the glamorous foodie shared a photo of a gorgeous latticework pie. Filled with berries, the treat had dough on top that spelled out: Stay at Home.
"I know we all want to celebrate the good weather after being cooped up for so long, but it’s so important for everyone’s health to practice social distancing. We can hug, kiss and rejoice once it’s safe to do so. If you’re able to stay home, that’s what we’ve gotta do," Padma wrote.
While in self-quarantine, Padma has also honed her mixology skills. In a recent cocktail tutorial, she shared a step-by-step guide to making a margarita with a minty twist. "I thought we could all use a drink," she reasoned.
