Evan Kleiman’s minestrone, advice on home cooking while social distancing

With restaurants mostly closed throughout the city, a lot of people are now cooking more at home. For some, that’s a challenge. Maybe you’re not so confident in the kitchen. So what is the best way to cook in quarantine?

We check in with Good Food host Evan Kleiman, who’s making minestrone tonight.
