The ultimate Stay-at-home entertainment list

With so much time on our hands, it's easy to run out of ideas on what to do. That's why we compiled a "Home entertainment list" for you to stay busy.

Being stuck indoors can be a blessing or a curse - depending which kind of person you are. Either way, it can get dull. That's why we surveyed our entire City Pantry team to share their favourite movies, TV shows, books, podcasts, games, workouts and, of course, recipes to keep you busy!
