  • Adam Richman, host of "Man vs Food" and "Secret Eats," will make his mother’s favorite Chicken Marsala recipe.   

“Because of the imposed shelter-in-place restrictions, almost all of life’s events - big and small and everything in between - are taking place in the home,” said Giant Eagle spokesperson Jannah Jablonowski.  “We want our communities to know that lifelong, positive memories can still be created at home with family.  That’s why we’ve launched this online cooking series where nationally known food experts are sharing tips on stocking up and cooking quarantine-friendly foods that the whole family can help make.”
