Over six months of pandemic restrictions in the Philippines decimated its restaurant scene, but they also helped amateur chefs rediscover their inner foodie and whip up dishes for a captive audience online.

From traditional favourites with a new twist to classic baked goods, a hodgepodge of offerings are served up daily on Facebook and Instagram accounts, where enterprising sellers coming from different careers fill orders, dispatch deliveries or simply send comfort food to friends.

“I used to bake in college, it was a hobby of mine, but I didn’t have the time especially during the last years of college and when I started working a corporate job,” said Alex Ledesma, who lives in Manila and has a background in marketing. “So I really started baking again during quarantine because there really wasn’t a lot to do anyways.”

Czech Central Banker Finds Comfort in Inflation as Virus Soars

(Bloomberg) — As central banks around the world expand their help to economies hit by the coronavirus pandemic, Czech policy makers can sit tight and let inflation do its work.

After cutting interest rates the most in the European Union this year, the Czech central bank is probably done with easing, Deputy Governor Tomas Nidetzky said in an interview on Monday. It should keep the benchmark at 0.25% for at least a year before considering raising it, he said, as resilient price growth will support a recovery from a virus-triggered recession.

While a resurgence in coronavirus cases is darkening the outlook for the export-reliant economy, the government is keeping unemployment low and propping up household spending, for now. That’s one of the reasons for inflation running above the tolerance range set by the central bank, which has signaled the next move will likely be a hike.
