Every night, Chef Bottura is streaming how he prepares his nightly meals.

He is calling the live streams "Kitchen Quarantine," which take place at 3pm ET on his official Instagram account.

So far the 57-year-old Italian chef has taught us how to make a veggie-packed Thai curry, salad, tortellini in a thick parmesan sauce, and a New York-inspired pasta.

Afterwards, Bottura addresses fan questions and comments about the recipes in an online Q&A session.

But Bottura wants to be clear that he isn't just teaching kitchen skills.

"This is not a cooking show," he said in a short video this afternoon. "It's just a way to share with people from all over the world… we just want to be part of the world. There's a beautiful sentence in Italiano from a poet, Franco Arminio [translated to]: Yes, we are here, home, but we are talking with the whole world, so we are sharing with the whole world."
