TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Two local college graduates created a book during quarantine.

Grace Ubben and Isabel Sanchez wrote the book, titled "Quarantine Quisine", is a cook book to encourage people to explore recipes that engage the senses and delight in creating and enjoying wonderful food.

When asked when they want readers to get from the book, Ubben said:

"Healthy cooking at home doesn't have to be intimidating. Everyone is craving non-virtual experiences while we’re all isolated and stuck on screens. There's never been a better time to form a new, hands-on relationship with food. So many members of our generation have unhealthy relationships with food, and quarantine has really compounded the stress we all deal with. We want this cookbook to help re-frame negative food associations and use cooking as soul therapy during this time of isolation."

There will be a launch party for it on Oct. 28 at Hearth and Soul from 5-7 p.m. and an Instagram Live that day at 5 p.m.
