Gushwell Brooks spoke to Marble chef and co-founder David Higgs to get a few ideas for some good dishes.

With restaurants temporarily closed down and delivery services halted during the lockdown, families are expected to fend for themselves by cooking over the 21 day period.

What can you do with what's in your fridge?

Gushwell Brooks spoke to Marble chef and co-founder David Higgs who has invited his Instagram followers to grab a few ideas from him based on what they have available.

Pickles, whether it is pickled onions, any pickles of those pickles, gherkins, add a really interesting dimension to food. For instance yesterday a gent posted - he had some asparagus in the fridge and a lovely lime pickle. I said to him take that lime pickle and add a little bit of yogurt to that to almost make a bit of a sauce, grill your asparagus and that is a fantastic little vegetarian dish.

Unless you are exercising heavily at home, try and keep the breakfast as light as possible and try and make the main meal of the day maybe at lunchtime - so do your carbs and that kind of thing and then maybe a lighter sort of salad at dinner.

He suggests some meals you can create with the essentials.

I would look at those salad items because those are quick to put together. Eggs makes for a great meal, little omelettes, scrambled eggs with a little cold sliced salmon on the side. Baked potatoes, pastas.
